Re Kane and Hearst
This page previously stated "Citizen Kane was written as a commentary on William Randolph Hearst." Not only is this unsourced, it's incorrect. Read the Citizen Kane entry. Citizen Kane was a commentary on the particular breed of media moguls that was popular at the turn of the century. I have removed the phrase. Thor Rudebeck 19:12, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- This is not true, or at least is less true than the opposing view. Citizen Kane was very directly modeled on Hearst. Watch The American Experience: The Battle Over Citizen Kane. Jason Quinn (talk) 15:12, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Marco Polo write in "Il Milione" The Travels of Marco Polo in 1271-1298: ""si truova una cittade ch'è chiamata Giandu, la quale fee fare lo Grande Kane che regna, Coblai Kane. E àe fatto fare in questa città uno palagio di marmo e d'altre ricche pietre; le sale e le camere sono tutte dorate e è molto bellissimo marivigliosamente." Same surname same initial of Citizen Kane.Assianir (talk) 22:08, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
S.T. Coleridge's Poem
In my opinion S.T. Coleridge's Poem "Kubla Khan" should be mentioned in this article. The article on the city Xanadu states "It [Xanadu] became fabled as a metaphor for opulence, most famously in the English Romantic Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem Kubla Khan.". If this is true, it seems probable that an English speaking audience was supposed to / will typically associate the name "Xanadu" with this poem. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:39, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
