The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"Water, water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink."

"The poem contains many delicate touches of passion and indeed the passion is everywhere true to nature." William Wordsworth.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - illustrated by Steve French

In this stunning edition of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's nightmarish poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, artist Steve French draws on his dark gothic side to beautifully convey the gruesome and macabre 'ballad of the supernatural". Once read, no one can forget Coleridge's haunting words which speak of man's ugly battle with nature and himself. And with these unique original illustrations this is an experience that will last a life time.

"Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink."
