It was composed following a meditative walk through the port of Watchet on the Bristol Channel and based on a dream about a ghost ship crewed by lost souls that one of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's friends had shared with him. With hypnotic musicality and powerful symbolism, its narration, like an oracle, tells of the mysterious voyage through the waters of a crime and its punishment towards a destination of storms, penitence and purification. All this is caused by the killing of an albatross, a sign of good fortune, at the hand of a strange sailor, and it will unleash nature's fury, a battle between the forces of good and evil.

I've seen bigger postage stamps than this book. It's 10cm by 16cm - it'll fit in your pocket, if that's what you want, but looks out of place on a bookshelf!
Would have been nicer to have the text and in particular the illustrations much larger. On the surface this is a poem Samuel Taylor Coleridge about a mariner that dispatches an albatross. Of course, it is a metaphor and has deeper significance. Anyone can tell the tale but not as well and graphic as Coleridge. It is interesting how people that never really read the poem then quote and misquote the poem.
One thinks having an albatross around ones neck is because the bird is bad luck and not that the bird brought good luck until it was dispatched. Of course it is a metaphor and has deeper significance. See all reviews from Australia. Top international reviews. It's a beautiful and emotionally written piece of poetry which slides off the tongue a treat. I read it aloud, so I really appreciated the incredible verses and quite chilling story within.
As an adult it was poignant and haunting, as a child, it was wasted on me. All I wanted to read at 15 was horror! I'm glad I gave this a second chance. Thank you for your feedback.

All left justified This copy Ancient has a nice intro, but the TOC doesn't work so it's hard to find where the poem starts. This version has numbered the poem line numbers, but not in the normal way so they distract a bit from the reading. Text size is ok i. Am off to look it up on wiki!
Water water everywhere nor a drop to drink, the curse of the albatross! I didn't know they came from this poem. Although I did struggle with this, who is the wedding guest, groom, mariner, etc, you know the main ingredients of the poem!
I did find it strangely hypnotic. One person found this helpful. All left justified The other copy Ancient has a nice intro, but the TOC doesn't work so it's hard to find where the poem starts. A classic poet first published in in the Lyrical Ballads. It is a tale being told by a returning sailor of a journey to a man he stops on his way ot a wedding. As the poem progresses it takes on form a narritive that is vivid and at times frightening.
There has been various suggestions as to the development of the poem. Some have felt it followed news of Captain Cooks's ship others that it was prepared from walks near the sea. What ever the source of reason for writting this poem it is best taken as a great yarn told by a master and enjoyed for it.
I recommend it as being the best work we this side of the big pond have of Samual Taylor Coleridge. Load more international reviews. I had been meaning to read this since I read a quote in a book when I was a teenager possibly The Stand by Stephen King. More recently I have spotted a quote in another book Primo Levi. I had put off reading the book as I had the impression that it would be very long and that the bits that had been quoted were the exception.
However my impression had been completely wrong. The poem is beautiful and not too long. It is a tribute to how good it is that when I read it I realised that it has been quoted even more than I had thought. This version has been set out for the kindle like a poem and has pictures :- I read some of the notes which are ok. I am keeping this on my kindle so I can read it again whenever I want. A well written poem which is well worth sitting down to read.
Why did the Mariner kill the albatross? Answer: because humans wish to destroy. The book was in great conditon, no writing, no tear and wear so overall I am very satisfied, however it did come a little late, though again not something I am very bothered by. When it came to me it had been broken into, however nothing was stolen so I am not too bothered by this as I know these things sometimes happen.
Excellent free version, well formatted and good clear print. This is magical poetry. It conjures images of horror and wonder that stay in the mind long after you have finished reading. It is particularly satisfying to read aloud because of the strong rhythm.
