But, as the Coleridge of the Biographia recognised, this question had already surrounded “Kubla Khan,” where, conversely, success is imagined as failure. The Preface to the poem, in supplying a narrative of interrupted origins, of imperfect birth (“As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,” 297, line 18), registers this awareness and attempts to introduce what Beckett was to call, in contrasting his own work with Kafka’s, “consternation behind the form, not in the form” (Shenker, 148, my emphasis).
The shaman-poet becomes (would become) the scapegoat as his listeners segregate him, using a magic symbol which recalls ironically the “girdling” of Kubla’s dome with which the poem began: And all should cry, Beware! Beware! His flashing eyes, his floating hair! Weave a circle round him thrice, And close your eyes with holy dread, For he on honey-dew hath fed, And drunk the milk of Paradise. (298, lines 49-54) It seems that unity and separation, wholeness and fragmentation, success and failure, stand in a dialectical relationship in this poem.
He concludes: In each of these texts we find Kafka’s idiosyncrasy to a greater or lesser degree, but if Kafka had never written a line, we would not perceive this quality; in other words, it would not exist. […] The fact is that every writer creates his own precursors. His work modifies our conception of the past, as it will modify the future. (236; author’s italics) The footnoting of “Tradition and the Individual Talent” after the last of these sentences serves only to underline the difference in emphasis.
