At the last lesson we saw the great poem “The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner”. It was written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and it has effects in our time.
A mariner tells his story to a man. They sail in a ship to the south. They lost in the fog, and an albatross appears. However, the mariner shoots him. After that they stuck at the sea, and they couldn’t find any water.
Suddenly they see a ship, but thag ship is their undoing. Their lifes are put on the gamble table, then thay begin to die. The mariner can not die because he is cursed.
He prays and the crew awaken, and they help him to go home. He receive forgiveness from a hermit, and he begin to tell his story for redemption.
It is very qualified, and good poem. The language is a little bit difficult however. Even though, it has a reputation, and it deserves it.
