The Rime of the Ancient Mariner SISO 738.1


Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is of all poems surely one of the hardest to illustrate. Its virtues - its subtle music, psychological depths, its sense of growing horror - are not those that ordinarily lend themselves to pictorial representation.
Nor would Gustave Dore (1832-1883) seem at first sight the ideal illustrator. Dore waited all his life to illustrate this poem, and when the time came he produced one of his most inspired works.
