Title: The Magnificent end to the Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

The Magnificent end to the Rime of the Ancient
Mariner.

SUMMARY TIME!!!!!!
  • The Hermit starts to sing a hymn
  • Everything on the boat is dead and that the ship
    is dieing, the very wood rots.
  • The ship sinks and the mariner is in the water
    floating and was saved by the Pilot.
  • The four people in the boat are the Pilot, the
    Pilots boy, the Hermit and the mariner.
  • They went to land from there.
  • He finishes telling the story and the wedding
    party ignore his advice and disregard his tale.

3
Why the misfortune?
  • The crime of the albatross being shot is the
    reason for the curse upon the ship.
  • The mariner is cursed for his transgression and
    the crew of the ship is made to pay for it.
    Unlike Jonah, the mariner stayed upon the ship to
    accept his fate, dooming the rest of his crew.
  • The mariner is left alive and landlocked to tell
    his tale for all his time.

4
People are Fickle
  • The wedding guests do not accept his story as one
    to be pondered or thought of. They take his story
    as one of fancy and entertainment.
  • They do not see the macabre truth inside the
    story and ignore the deeper meaning to the story.

5
ALLUSION TIME
  • Just like Cassandra, the mariner is doomed to
    tell his truth but would never be heard for what
    it is.
  • The journey of Odysseus is like that of the
    mariner for he was traveling on the sea and
    angered the fates by ignoring the rules of gods.

6
And Even More!
  • The fate of the mariner is mirrored in Creons
    loss of all those around him. Creons whole
    family dies and only he is left to die the burden
    as all the mariners crew dies for his mistake.
  • The mariner is forced to punish himself as
    Reverend Dimmesdale flogged his back for the sin
    he has committed. Just as the Dimmesdale must
    admit his sin to the world, the mariner must
    travel the land and tell his tale of woe.

7
And last but not least!
  • Jesus is the ultimate symbol to the ancient
    mariner in the way that both offer their gifts
    freely and is not accepted immediately by all.
    The superhuman qualities mingled with common
    frailty creates another link between both great
    figures.
