Plot in Kubla Khan

Plot Examples in Kubla Khan:

Kubla Khan 1

"In a vision once I saw:..."   (Kubla Khan)

At this stanza break, the subject shifts from the imagined Xanadu to the speaker, a poet who brings himself into the poem. This shift thus represents a move to a separate, deeper layer of reality within the poem. In the first two first stanzas, we encounter the speaker’s imagination. In this final stanza, we encounter the speaker himself.
