The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
For killing an albatross, the mariner and his crew are punished with drought and death. Amidst a series of supernatural events, the mariner's life alone is spared and he repents, but he must wander the earth and tell his tale with the lesson that "all things great and small" are important.
This does contain the Rime, but it is mostly other works by Coleridge, and not a complete compendium. Since there can be found both a complete compendium of Coleridge, and a copy of the Rime alone, it may be worthwhile to visit those options instead. It would be great if we could see the Table of Contents when considering these books - especially for non-free books.
Worthwhile to read
Difficult Archaic English but when understood gives a nice and a pathetic story.
