In "Kubla Khan," Coleridge describes the creation and destruction of Kubla Khan's palace in the location of Xanadu, which gives the poem a quality. Through the character of Kubla Khan, Coleridge uses the wild image of the Mongols to suggest that Kubla Khan is insane, implying that all creative actions are the acts of men. The last lines bring the poem to a close. Flashing eyes evoke the image of passionate creativity. By talking about "holy dread," Coleridge suggests that creation is both and demonic.
