 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is the longest major poem from Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Originally published in 1798, it marks a shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic literature. If you’ve heard the saying of someone having an albatross around their neck, this is the thing they’re referencing. The Gustave Doré engraved illustrations for this book are absolutely wonderful. 

And now, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
