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.
    • Let's not forget that this poem was written way back in the 1700s, so that may just have been normal speech of the day.
  • 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.
