Read The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. This epic poem begins British romantic literature. A ship, on a nightmarish voyage, is beset by supernatural events. A Mariner kills the albatross which guided his ship to safety during a huge storm. This incites the fury of vengeful spirits who inflict terrible suffering on the crew. An eerie vessel appears, bearing the ghostly specters of Death and Life-in-Death, who may claim all on board.
