The rime of_the_ancient_mariner[1]

  1. 1. Karen Cruz Lisa Oommen Trevor Walker Lytton Courtney Sam Norton (Part 7)
  2. 2. Theme <ul><li>The Ancient Mariner preaches respect for the natural world in order to be in good terms with the spiritual world. He says that in order to respect God, one must respect all of creations. </li></ul><ul><li>Developed through word choice, simile, tone, and imagery. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Summary <ul><li>The lonely Hermit talks with the sailors. He’s very religious and is seen often kneeling to pray in the moss. </li></ul><ul><li>The Hermit and Mariner hear noises across the bay. It ends up being a ship sinking </li></ul>
  4. 4. Stanza 1-5 <ul><li>The rotted old-oak stump shows forest imagery of how the Hermit is associated with nature. </li></ul><ul><li>“ The planks looked warped! and see those sails, how thin they are” emphasizes the ghostly appearance of the ship. It seems unnatural. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Brown skeletons of leaves that lag my forest-brook along” again shows the ship having a ghostly figure and comparing it to something that is dying. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Stanzas 6-10 <ul><li>“ Fiendish look”- diabolically, cruel, wicked </li></ul><ul><li>“ I am feared” </li></ul><ul><li>Hermit urges the Pilot to steer the boat closer </li></ul><ul><li>It shows the comparison of how the Hermit is undaunted however the Pilot is. </li></ul><ul><li>“ The ship went down like lead”- it is similar to how the albatross was portrayed when it fell into the ocean. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Like one that hath been seven days drowned my body lay afloat”- Simile that expresses how dead the mariner actually looked when they pulled him into the boat. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Stanzas 11-15 <ul><li>“ Laughed loud and long, and all the while his eyes went to and fro… full plain I see, the devil knows how to row.” – imagery that displays how the Pilot’s son looses his mind in seeing the “devil” through the mariners body. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Oh shrieve me, shrieve me holy man!”- Mariner asking the Hermit to free him of his sins. </li></ul><ul><li>“ With a woeful agony”- the Mariner’s regret </li></ul>
  7. 7. Stanzas 16-20 <ul><li>“ Till my ghastly tale is told, this heart within me burns.”- It signifies the gruesome imagery of this tale. </li></ul><ul><li>“ I pass, like night, from land to land.” – simile comparing night to the way that he wanders around the world telling the people of his tale. He moves like night which is dark and mysterious. </li></ul><ul><li>“ What loud uproar… which biddeth me to prayer.” – tone change to didactic through the way that he begins to teach the wedding guests about how to respect nature. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Alone on the wide wide sea… O sweeter than the marriage–feast.” – imagery combined with a simile to show how far away from God he was and his longing to pray rather than waste his time at a wedding ceremony. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Stanzas 21-25 <ul><li>Mariner refers to God throughout this section </li></ul><ul><li>“ He prayeth well, who loveth well/Both man and bird and beast.” sums up his tale by declaring that only people who love God’s creations can gain salvation, alluding back to the theme </li></ul><ul><li>“ For the dear God who loveth us,/He made and loveth all.“ again preaches God’s love </li></ul><ul><li>“ Whose beard with age is hoar” imagery illustrating the mariner’s old age through his gray beard </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>The mariner praises the Hermit since he represents an example of living in harmony with nature. He advises the wedding guest that one can live in a better world by seeing value mundane or ordinary things in life. </li></ul>
