The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Author(s): Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Special Order

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is the longest major poem by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It relates the events experienced by a mariner who has returned from a long sea voyage. The Mariner stops a man who is on the way to a wedding ceremony and begins to narrate a story. The Wedding-Guest's reaction turns from bemusement to impatience and fear to fascination as the Mariner's story progresses, as can be seen in the language style: for example, Coleridge uses narrative techniques such as personification and repetition to create either a sense of danger, of the supernatural or of serenity, depending on the mood of each of the different parts of the poem.
