In The Rime of the Ancient Mariner Samuel Coleridge tells an exciting tale of a mans sin against nature and his repentance and reconciliation Coleridge describes the nature of each phase of the Mariners sin through out the tale The tale goes through many different atmospheres as it tells about the Mariners crime and punishment At first everything seemed to be very normal and pleasant The ship was cheered on as it took off from the harbor and out to sea they went The ship sailed on southward till it reached the line The ship sailed with good wind and fair weather Everything seemed perfect as the sun came up from the left The story suddenly changes as a storm drives the ship towards the South Pole With sloping masts and dipping prow As who pursued with yell and blow Still treads the shadow of his foe And forward bends his head The ship drove fast loud roared the blast And southward aye we fled They ended up in a land of ice where no living thing was seen There was ice everywhere surrounding the ship It looked as if there was little chance for survival Then out of know where a great seabird called the Albatross appeared through the fog and brought the seamen hope At length did cross and Albatross Through the fog it came As if it had been a Christian soul We hailed it in Gods name The Albatross was proven to be of good omen and followed the ship as it returned northward through the fog and ice Then out of he blue the Mariner shoots down the Albatross with his crossbow The shipmates cry out against the ancient Mariner for killing the bird of good omen The fair breeze continued till it reached the line then it suddenly becalmed Down dropt the breeze the sails dropt
