  • The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner Diction Analysis

    The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Coleridge, is a poem that was written in 1798 during the Industrial Revolution. The tale guides the reader through the adventures of an ancient mariner.

The mariner was irreverent and carefree of nature, and his act of shooting down the peaceful bird symbolizes the dangerous disregard many people have of nature. The Albatross itself represents the goodness of nature and the innocence of God's creation. The second example of symbolism is while the mariner is cursed.

This quote demonstrates symbolism because he is cursed and has lost his connection with God after killing the Albatross. After attempting communication…

    And actually he says it in the preface that one should not actually zero in on the mythical part but on the undertakings of the peoples day to day life.

This is seen when Remus and Romulus consulted the tutelary deities by means of augury to know who was to give his name to the city they founded (Kirschenbaum, 1996); and this is also seen in the latter stories i.e. the defeat at Lake…
