review The Rime of the Ancient Mariner The Rime of the Ancient Mariner review Ë 0 Other poems in Lyrical Ballads it was a signal shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic literatureIt relates the events experienced by a mariner who has returned from a long sea voyage The Mariner stops a man on his way to a wedding ceremony and begins to narrate a story The Wedding Guest's reaction t. Since then at an uncertain hourThat agony returns And till my ghastly tale is toldThis heart within me burns 75Today 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 chancesHowever many years ago a young man that was going to a wedding had no other choice but to listen to a strange man s story He resisted but the old man a bright eyed Mariner had already decided that the young guest was going to be the next listener And so the story beginsThis is my first Coleridge and I was delightfully surprised This poem was published in 1798 and it is divided into seven parts It is written in old English of course and that always means that I have to read it very carefully to avoid confusion At some point I felt like a four year old finding help in the beautiful illustrations that this book contains I probably should not admit that but there it is It is written I cannot take it back I could though but I do not want to erase that and think of something else to write Like a lie Because that would be too weird And the babbling ends nowColeridge s poetry is a true gem waiting to be discovered Its vividness is something I have seen before but with a different style A very uniue melody It is exceptionally evocative The images it describes are too powerful they manage to leave the paper to become something you can see and touch The roar of the sea becomes too intense to bear The sky transforms into a dark vapor viciously moving from one side to another I could hardly see who was next to me I only hear their yelling And the loudest one came from the sea And now there came both mist and snowAnd it grew wondrous coldAnd ice mast high came floating byAs green as emerald 12And yet the frightening images described by this poem do not sound that bad after listening to the music dwelling in every verse This beautiful melody took me by surprise and became a serene partner throughout this entire adventure Suddenly the sky did not look so threatening the icy water became bearable and the solitary immensity of the sea was welcome And again contradictions That feeling described above changed from time to time The desperation of being trapped in such a surreal landscape was so great sometimes that I could feel it in my bonesDay after day day after dayWe stuck nor breath nor motion As idle as a painted shipUpon a painted ocean 21Gustave Dor About about in reel and routThe death fires danced at night The water like a witch s oilsBurnt green and blue and white 25The story continues with the Mariner killing an albatross That sad decision brought disgrace to all the crew and especially to the bright eyed Mariner Sometimes death embodies blessing when living becomes a curseAlone alone all all aloneAlone on a wide wide seaAnd never a saint took pity onMy soul in agony 35This poem is a perfect reminder of everything we need no matter the place nor time respect for one another For all living things Not only for the sake of others but for yours Every action has its conseuence It would be a dreadful thing to have killed the bird that made the breeze to blowAug 17 14 Also on my blog

review The Rime of the Ancient Mariner The Rime of the Ancient Mariner review Ë 0 Urns from bemusement to impatience fear and fascination as the Mariner's story progresses as can be seen in the language style for example the use of narrative techniues such as personification and repetition to create a sense of danger or the supernatural or serenity depending on the mood each different part of the poem. 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 dayWe stuck nor breath nor motion As idle as a painted shipUpon a painted oceanWater water everywhere And all the boards did shrink Water water everywhereNor any drop to drink
