Abstract:

"One of the most evocative, famous, and mysterious poems in the English language is undoubtedly Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. This seaman's story - full of symbols, strange occurrences, moral implications, and moral ambiguity - has fascinated scholars and lovers of verse. This edition is not only the most comprehensive and informative available but also the most elegant ever to appear." "Martin Gardner, well known for his Annotated Alice, has written an introduction, a brief biography of Coleridge, copious explanatory notes to the text that are designed to deepen the reader's understanding of the ballad, and a chapter summing up the major critical attitudes toward the poem in which he also discusses possible higher levels of meaning. He closes with questions concerning the poem's much-debated moral. Included also is the first published version of the Rime - significantly different from the final version - and a selected bibliography."--BOOK JACKET.
