The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Today I’m reading Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner by the late 18th-century opiate-addicted English romantic Samuel Taylor Coleridge. He was a genius! This 7 part poem tells the story of a salty sailor who battled every element possible on a deadly ghost ship and is actually the origin of the expression “an albatross around his neck”.
