Since the role of the imagination is so central in the Romantics' world view, their works are often greatly enriched by an imaginative reading in which the reader's own mind becomes an active participant in the work, performing the powers of imagination that the poetry describes. In my own experience, it was an unusual interpretation of a single word in Coleridge's "Kubla Khan" that illustrated within my own mind this power the Romantics praised.
