Objectives
introduction

“This poem is the story of a mariner who is given a curse while he is at sea…This particular stanza is most powerful as it gives the reader a foreboding sense that something bad is coming.”

  • “This is the fourth stanza to Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem, “Rime of the Ancient Mariner.” This stanza describes in depth the grasp the mariner’s tale had on this particular wedding guest.”
  • “Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” is a narrative poem with many themes intertwined throughout. The main theme, however is that there are always consequences for one’s actions, especially for killing one of God’s creations…this stanza foreshadows and acts as a catalyst for the negative consequences that are to come.”
Introduction
body paragraphs

“The first two lines of this stanza are referring to her looks: the description of her red lips. ‘Her lips were red’ is initially taken as a positive aspect. Red lips are attractive. But, they can also be dangerous: promiscuous, mysterious, dramatic, and even a touch vampiric, as if she is sucking the life (LIFE-IN-DEATH) out of others.”

  • “He is listening to the mariner ‘like a three years child.’ This can mean that the guest believes everything he hears, even if it may be exaggerated or incorrect.”
  • “Was withered at the root” is quite graphic. The words “withered” and “root” usually refer to plants, but here create the image of a dried tongue withered from the tip to the very back of the mouth. Additionally, the plant-themed words of line 2 connect back to the “drought” of line 1.
Body Paragraphs
conclusion

“This stanza changes the mood and tone of the poem and provides a smooth transition from lonely chaos to quiet company.”

  • “Coleridge emphasizes that we do not have to feel guilty for our sins.”
  • “We are able to see the hopelessness of the sailors, the hopelessness of the ship, and the hopelessness of the mariner, all in this stanza.”
  • “The author chooses to include that line to show the mariner’s guilt. He repeats the word “thousand” to emphasize the quantity of still-living slimy things and demonstrate the shame of losing a few good men when a thousand thousand disgusting things are still alive.”
Conclusion
