Culbone Wood

Sometime in the making, Tom Lowenstein’s From Culbone Wood – In Xanadu (subtitled ‘notebooks and fantasias’) was launched last night at Swedenborg Hall. This prose work takes off from Coleridge and ‘Kubla Khan’. It is written in a late eighteenth century manner and incorporates items in Somerset dialect, yet it also involves imaginative excursions into texts and voices of whose existence Coleridge would almost certainly not have been aware.
