Rime Of The Ancient Mariner

Rating: 3.5
IN SEVEN PARTS

Facile credo, plures esse Naturas invisibiles quam visibiles in rerum
universitate. Sed horum omnium familiam quis nobis enarrabit? et gradus et
cognationes et discrimina et singulorum munera? Quid agunt? quae loca
habitant? Harum rerum notitiam semper ambivit ingenium humanum, nunquam
attigit. Juvat, interea, non diffiteor, quandoque in animo, tanquam in
tabulâ, majoris et melioris mundi imaginem contemplari: ne mens assuefacta
hodiernae vitae minutiis se contrahat nimis, et tota subsidat in pusillas
cogitationes. Sed veritati interea invigilandum est, modusque servandus, ut
certa ab incertis, diem a nocte, distinguamus. - T. Burnet, Archaeol.

He prayeth well, who loveth well Both man and bird and beast. He prayeth best, who loveth best All things both great and small; For the dear God who loveth us, He made and loveth all. I salute this great poet.

One of the best narrative poems ever written in English, this lost nothing by being brought to the attention of hundreds of thousands of adolescents in the anthology THE NARRATIVE ART IN VERSE.

Undoubtedly the most influential narrative poem of my teenage years. Though we had to 'study' it for an exam, it was in that wonderful anthology THE NARRATIVE ART IN VERSE - sometimes maligned by 'the trendies'. As Janet put it in her 2004 posting, 'Brilliant. An all-time favourite.'
