  • "It is an ancient Mariner, And he stoppeth one of three." - Stanza 1. It is the beginning of the poem where one of the three wedding attendees is stopped by an old sailor. The man who stops questions why he was stopped.
  • "By thy long grey beard and glittering eye, Now wherefore stopp'st thou me?"
  • BY: TREVOR DUKE
  • "He holds him with his glittering eye -- The Wedding-Guest stood still, And listens like a three years child: The Mariner hath his will." - Stanza 4. This is the beginning of the story where the sailor captivates the wedding guest that he stopped and begins to tell his tale.

  • "The Wedding-Guest sat on a stone: He cannot chuse but hear; And thus spake on that ancient man, The bright-eyed Mariner." - Stanza 5. The sailor begins to tell his tale.
  • A long time ago in an ocean far far away...
  • "Come ye, in the name of the Lord!"
  • "At length did cross an Albatross: Thorough the fog it came; As if it had been a Christian soul, We hailed it in God's name." - Stanza 16. This is the introduction of the Albatross who is a key figure in the story.
  • MARINER
  • BY: TREVOR DUKE
  •  "'God save thee, ancient Mariner! From the fiends, that plague thee thus! -- Why look'st thou so?' -- With my cross-bow, I shot the ALBATROSS." - Stanza 20. This is a key point in the story when the Mariner kills the Albatross. Back in the present, the Wedding-Guest reacts to the Mariner's expressions when he is telling to the story.
  • BY: TREVOR DUKE
  • "Ah! well a-day! what evil looks, Had I from old and young! Instead of the cross, the Albatross, About my neck was hung." - Stanza 34. The Albatross was hung around the Mariner's neck symbolizing that he was the cause of the misfortune in the story.
