The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner

- The first stanza of ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’ begins with the line ‘The Sun now rose...’. Coleridge has immediately drawn the reader in with the use of the temporal adverb ‘now’, allowing the stanza to be read in the present tense, thus immersing the reader into the poem. Like the previous part, the sun is again personified in line two when Coleridge writes that ‘Out of the sea came he’. Referring to the sun as ‘he’ poses great significance when examining the background of this play. The weather plays a vital role in the journey of a sailing ship - the sun is used to tell the time, provide light, and usually where there is sun, there is no stormy weather and thus no rocky water for s...   [tags: Albatross, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Sun]
