The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

By Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Rating: 4 stars

I’m not very good with poetry so I was a bit wary when I approached this short volume, but the Rime itself was remarkably easy to read. It was full of beautiful and evocative imagery without having the density of language that makes poetry so difficult for me.

I can’t say the same about the other poems included in this volume. I don’t really think I understood any of them, although both Kubla Khan and Dejection: An Ode had some great images.
