The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

By Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Illustrated by Sophia Montefiore

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is one of the great classics of English Literature, considered by many to be the greatest ballad ever written in English. Composed at the end of the 18th century by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, its unique qualities have continued to capture the imagination of readers and artists throughout the
ages. Readers respond with awe to the power of the super-reality in the poem, experiencing the vast perspectives that surround the mariner, and sensing the greater wisdom residing in the elements. The poem potently expresses the monumental capacity for suffering inherent in the individual, as well as the complexity of harmonizing the extremes of one’s humanity. The creation of the 30 illustrations in this book by Sophia Montefiore was impelled by an abiding fascination with Coleridge’s perspectives into the world of the soul and the elemental powers of nature.
