The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (Poem)
By – Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The poem is an extract taken from Coleridge’s famous poem. He brings out the torment and feeling of strong guilt faced by an ancient mariner(an old sailor), who, in a moment of cruelty, killed an albatross.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner begins with one of the three wedding guests being approached by the Ancient Mariner and his hypnotic gaze prevents them from attending the wedding. The old man starts with narrating how the ship was given a cheerful send off and began sailing till it disappeared below the Kirk, then the hill and finally below the lighthouse top.

Since the wedding guests do not seem interested in hearing about the voyage, he is beating his chest because he can hear the sound of bassoon and also comes to know that the bride had entered the hall.

The old man explains how the sun rose from the left everyday, which meant that the ship was going towards the south. After a journey of some days, a monstrous storm came and strikes the ship as if a giant bird had struck with its huge wings.

The ship nevertheless keeps on moving as if trying to chase its enemy. The front of the ship was dripping with water. Finally it was able to escape the storm.

After he storm, the ship had to face mist and snow. It was more risky as icebergs were floating near the ship. Visibility was much poor which made it difficult to navigate. Then an albatross came from somewhere, as if it was sent by God. The albatross enjoyed the food given by the sailors and whenever a sailor gave a call, it came on the ship. No matter what, the albatross made it a routine to come to the ship, as if it was enjoying being there. But one day, the old sailor shot the albatross with his crossbow.

After the albatross was killed, the sunshine returned. The poet mentions that the sun was now setting on the left, which means that the ship was on its northwards journey. The South wind was blowing and the voyage was now more comfortable. But no bird came to feed on the leftover food.

The old sailor was now feeling guilty for killing the albatross and many other sailors also abused him for that, as the bird was believed to have made the winds blow.

After sometime time they had to drop the sail and there was deathly silence all around. The sun too looked very hot in the afternoon. Water was everywhere around them but they did not have a single drop of water to drink.

Everyone on the ship cursed the old sailor because they believed that it was the killing of the albatross that had brought all the misery to them. The old man was feeling that instead of a cross, an albatross was hung around his neck.
