The mariner says"With my cross-bow / I shot the Albatross" (Coleridge 80-81). This particular action is symbolic because it sparks the curse. 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.

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. For example the life of Remus and Romulus shows how superstitious the Roman society was from the onset. 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…

    As stated by Salvatore (2015), “profit serves a crucial function in a free-enterprise economy” (p. 19). Further reasoning would suggest if a company is generating profits, there must be adequate demand for their product or service. What determines which products are acceptable to supply given adequate demand, but also a moral dilemma? The most popular example of this catch-22 proposition is regarding cigarettes.
