1 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
An Ancient Mariner stops one (of three) on his way to a wedding.

2 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The wedding guest is mesmerized by the Mariner’s passion and begins listening to the story.

3 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The Mariner’s Tale: Their ship is driven south, by a storm, to a place of “mist and snow.”

4 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
“The ice was here, the ice was there, The ice was all around: It cracked and growled, and roared and howled, Like noises in a swound!”

5 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Surrounded by ice.

6 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
An albatross appears.

7 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The albatross leads them out of the fog.

8 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The Mariner shoots the albatross. At first the crew condemns him, but when a favorable breeze appears, they justify his action. This implicates them in his crime.

9 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Later, the wind stops and the ship is stranded for days, “As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.” “Water, water, every where, and all the boards did shrink; Water, water, every where, nor any drop to drink.” The crew blames the Mariner for no wind and hangs the albatross around his neck as punishment.

10 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
A ghost ship approaches with a Specter-Woman and her Death-Mate as crew.

11 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
“Death” and “Life in Death” roll dice for the lives of the ship’s crew. “Life in Death” wins.

12 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
“Each turned his face with a ghastly pang, and cursed me with his eye” “With heavy thump, a lifeless lump, they dropped down one by one.” “The souls did from their bodies fly, - They fled to bliss or woe! And every soul, it passed me by, Like the whizz of my cross-bow!”

13 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
“Alone, alone, all, all alone, alone on a wide wide sea! And never a saint took pity on my soul in agony.” “Seven days, seven nights, I saw that curse, and yet I could not die.”

14 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
“Beyond the shadow of the ship, I watched the water-snakes” “O happy living things! No tongue their beauty might declare: A spring of love gushed from my heart, and I blessed them unaware”

15 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The curse is lifted and the albatross falls from his neck and sinks “like lead into the sea.”

16 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The dead men awaken and the Mariner directs his ghostly crew North.

17 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
As the Mariner returns to his home port, the spirits of his crew leave their bodies. He receives forgiveness (shrieve) from a hermit.

18 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The Mariner’s ship sinks.

19 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The story concluded, the wedding guest leaves “a sadder and a wiser man.” The Mariner must tell his tale to warn others (redemption).
