YMMV / The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

  • Fridge Brilliance: The Mariner speaks in such an archaic dialect because he never kept up with English. Keep in mind he's immortal, and wanders the earth.
    • Except the Wedding Guest uses just as many 'thee's and 'thou's at the few points where he says anything.
  • Nightmare Fuel: This illustration of Life-in-Death by Mervyn Peake (yes, the guy who wrote Gormenghast) is not something you should look at right before you go to sleep. You have been warned.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: The Pilot's boat is steered by His Son at one point. As in, the boat that frees us from our sins is piloted by the Son.
