Storyboard Text

  • Four times fifty living men,/(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)/With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,/They dropped down one by one. (stanza 51) The sun sets, the stars come out, and every one of the mariner's shipmates dies after cursing him with their eyes.
  • 'I fear thee, ancient Mariner!/I fear thy skinny hand!/And thou art long, and lank, and brown,/As is the ribbed sea-sand. (stanza 53) The wedding guest fears that the mariner also died on the ship and that he is being visited by the mariner's spirit. 
  •      I looked to Heaven, and tried to pray:/But or ever a prayer had gusht,/A wicked whisper came, and made/my heart as dry as dust. (stanza 58) The mariner attempts to pray for deliverance but finds that he is unable to.
  •      Within the shadow of the ship/I watched their rich attire:/Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,/They coiled and swam; and every track/Was a flash of golden fire. (stanza 65) The mariner sees strange snakes coiling and swimming in the water.
  • The self same moment I could pray;/And from my neck so free/The Albatross fell off, and sank/Like lead into the sea. (stanza 67) After blessing the water snakes, the mariner finds he is able to pray again and as a result, the body of the albatross falls off his neck and sinks into the sea.
  • Till noon we quietly sailed on,/Yet never a breeze did breathe:/Slowly and smoothly went the ship,/Moved onward from beneath. (stanza 86) After a miraculous rain, the dead crew rises up and resumes work without saying a word. Eventually, they manage to return to the place they set sail from.
