Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner (1834) is a story about a sea voyage, told by a 'bright eyed mariner' to a guest he has cornered at a wedding. On his voyage the mariner killed the bird 'that made the breeze to blow', meets death and finds redemption. Click the illustration below for the accompanying poem excerpts.
