    So why did the Ancient Mariner shoot the Albatross To me the answer is simple He did it because he could he did it because is he is a man, and that s what men do he saw something beautiful he saw perfection in nature, and he killed it That s humanity for you Sinning is easily, as quickly as a finger click it happens just like that There s little thought involved For the Mariner it is spontaneity itself it s in his nature to destroy The shooting of the bird suggests that all sin is the same it s [...]

    Her lips were red, her looks were free, Her locks were yellow as gold Her skin was white as leprosy,The Nightmare Life in Death was she, Who thicks man s blood with cold.When I did construction work this is what I always wrote on the inside of the Port a Potties, amongst all the other graffiti and anatomically imaginative drawings of women.

    Since then, at an uncertain hour,That agony returns And till my ghastly tale is told,This heart within me burns 75 Today, if a stranger stopped me at some party to talk to me about some story, I d probably walk away with a nervous smile, holding my pepper spray with dissimulation I admit it, I do not easily trust people That is one of my many flaws fed by one complicated present And, yes, not all people are bad but I am not willing to take any chances.However, many years ago, a young man that wa [...]

    Who we start out as and who we end up as has always seemed to me to be the central point of this poem One can often return to a physical place but in the returning find that place lost due to the way their journey has changed their soul Looking for salvation one often finds that in the finding something else must be forever lost A close friend who suffers from PTSD has related to me that this poem is true to many feelings he has had to deal with.

    If all poetry books were like this, I would never read any prose.____________________________________________I was thinking about the Ancient Mariner just now, apropos Kris s review of Ice, and recalled an incident from a project I was once involved in The person in charge failed to renew the contract of a difficult but talented software engineer, after which we had a lot of problems This prompted the following verse For he had done a hellish thingAnd it would work them woeFor all averred, he ha [...]

    Definitely in my top 10 favorite poems I love the way it flows the lyrical rhythm soothes the battered soul.Day after day, day after day,We stuck, nor breath nor motion As idle as a painted shipUpon a painted ocean.Water, water, everywhere And all the boards did shrink Water, water, everywhere,Nor any drop to drink.

    To be honest, I bought this only because this edition is illustrated by Mervyn Peake, and I wanted to read the work to which he matched his amazing illustrations.Little did I expect to experience such a wonderful poetry story I am, admittedly, a bit of an unreliable poetry reader I don t often like let alone, love poetry, but when I do I tend to really like it No doubt, someone knowledgeable or better cough versed in poetry can probably figure out why I like the poetry poets I do Like Blake, El [...]

    Beware the Age of Reason14 December 2014 Whenever I come to this poem the first thing that comes to mind is the song by Iron Maiden unfortunately I don t think they did a video clip which would have been awesome in its own right.I am really tempted to spend the rest of this review talking about how as a teenager I loved Iron Maiden, and about how they were unfairly persecuted by the church because they released one song called Number of the Beast with an album of the same name , where in reality [...]

    I know serious students of poetry will mock this, but I really think this is a superlative poem and will even say that I believe Coleridge to be a superior poet to Wordsworth The ballad meter is delightful, and how can one not be won over by things like I fear thee, ancient mariner I fear thy skinny hand For thou art long and lank and brown As is the ribbed sea sand Ew, I mean, can t you just imagine what this guy looks like Or how about this The very deep did rot O Christ That ever this should [...]

    I loved the first 3 4 s of this They were full of fantastic imagery and it read really well But then, the last 1 4 just didn t sit well with me, it felt pretty out of place compared to the rest of the poem However, it was overall really enjoyable and intriguing

    La bellezza in una ballata Mai mi sarei aspettata di trovare qui l apoteosi del fantastico Coleridge il maestro di un notturno speciale, fatto di occhi scintillanti glittering eyes e mani di scheletro che prendono vita in un sussurro, di spose vermiglie come una rosa, di cieli di rame e sole sanguigno bloody sun , di un paesaggio quasi lunare che si perde in un deserto di ghiaccio, silenzioso e immobile Da un albatro ucciso comincia l incubo di una nave e del suo equipaggio, di un uomo che non p [...]

    I still don t understand the point of this book.Maybe because I kept wanting to DNF it Nothing picked up my interest through the whole thing The only reason I never gave up reading was because it s such a fast read and I was ashamed to DNF it I can even say I didn t understand anything after the 75%, I just kind of skimmed the pages to end it sooner.

    I fear thee ancient mariner I fear thy skinny hand And thou art long and lank and brown,As is the ribbed sea sandSections of this poem just go around and around in my head sometimes It s like the reading equivalent of sea sickness In a really, really good way.

    I ve loved this poem since college I re read it again today and it still amazes me Perhaps in a different light now So many of the lines just stick with you and as apt as they are for the poem, can be interpreted to apply to so many facets of life Water, Water Everywhere And all the boards did shrink Water, Water Everywhere Nor any Drop To Drink I can t help but think of global warming when I read this We have everything on our planet but the resources are shrinking and soon we will be left surr [...]

    O poema n o me impressionou, mas as ilustra es de Gustave Dor , sim Al m da sombra do navio, serpentes de gua Vejo em minha agonia Movem se em trilhas de candura que fulgura,E, quando se erguem, chispam l minas de alvura das luzes de magia.

    Rating 5 5The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is a classic poetry book from the pen of Samuel Taylor Coleridge In my interpretation, this seems to be the story of numerous zombie mariners, and the story of how they became the way they are, and the things that happened to them all afterwards I really wanted to read this again for my own entertainment after remembering randomly one day that I read this back in secondary school I had really loved it then and I really wanted to reread it and give it my [...]

    Alone, alone, all, all alone,Alone on a wide wide sea And never a saint took pity onMy soul in agony.The many men, so beautiful And they all dead did lie And a thousand thousand slimy thingsLived on and so did I.I looked upon the rotting sea,And drew my eyes away I looked upon the rotting deck,And there the dead men lay.I looked to heaven, and tried to pray But or ever a prayer had gusht,A wicked whisper came, and madeMy heart as dry as dust.I closed my lids, and kept them close,And the balls li [...]

    Water, water, everywhere, And all the boards did shrink Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink That is the the line or are the lines that stick in my mind.I read this poem years ago elementary school the late 60s I was already developing a taste for fantasy literature Where I lived at the time books in general were a little hard to come by, the school library was about my only source and this was a small rural school I had searched out Arthurian fiction, looked up all manner of folklore [...]

    Yeah, it s good.La poesia di Coleridge incredibile, tralasciando per un momento quello che dice o non dice Si tratta del modo in cui si esprime, la sua lirica Del tipo che se mi parli anche solo di quello che hai mangiato ieri sera, io sono felice Naturalmente anche il contenuto vale, ci mancherebbe Sono tanto belli i libri che ineggiano al valore della vita, almeno, questo il significato che Coleridge ha dichiarato nella ballata.Sono sicurissima che ha omesso interpretazioni secondarie e ugualm [...]

    I read this as an introduction to Frakenstein I had trouble getting into the story, but eventually let go of reality and immersed myself in Coleridge s phenomenal writing Water, water, everywhere,And all the boards did shrink Water, water, everywhereNor any drop to drink My peers joked that Coleridge wrote The Rime of the Ancient Mariner while under an opium induced haze I think the drug may have affected his perspective when crafting this, but I doubt he wrote the entire poem under the influenc [...]

    Already having an edition of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner illustrated by Gustave Dor , I bought this one for the illustrations by my favourite book illustrator, Mervyn Peake.Where Dor beautifully catches the gothic mood of Coleridge s verse, Peake catches the macabre, tenebrous quality of the Mariner s feverish nightmare In her introduction, Marina Warner tells of how Peake s commissioning editor found his illustration of the Night mare Life in Death too horrifying for its intended 1940s Brit [...]


    Katherine

    I read this poem in my late British Lit class I love the metaphor of the albatross as Christ, which the mariner kills with a cross bow Brilliant Also, the saying Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink comes from this poem One of the most interesting things about it is that Samuel Coleridge had an Opium addiction, which he was continually trying to overcome The themes of change, redemption and forgiveness are central to this piece, which are themes that Coleridge dealt with in his own l [...]
