Though Coleridge wrote ‘The Ancient Mariner’ when he was only twenty-five, there is a real sense in which it mapped out his life to come and
he later lived through both its horrors and its moments of divine revelation and transfigured vision. This lecture will explore the extent to which
the poem was prophetic not only of Coleridge's own life but also of the major cultural and ecological crisis through which we are living.
