The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (originally The Rime of the Ancient Mariner) is the longest poem by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, written in 1797-98 and published in 1798 in the first edition of Lyrical Ballads. Some modern editions use a revised version printed in 1817 that presented a brightness. Along with other poems in lyrical ballads, it is often considered a change of the signal to modern poetry and the beginning of British romantic literature. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner relates the experiences of a sailor who has returned from a long trip by sea. The Mariner stops a man who goes to a nuptial ceremony and begins to tell a story. The reaction of the guests to the wedding goes from bewilderment to impatience, fear, and fascination as the history of the sailor advances, as can be seen in the language: Coleridge uses narrative techniques such as personification and repetition to create a sense of danger, the supernatural or the serenity. depending on the mood in different parts of the poem.
