Excerpt from Coleridge's Ancient Mariner

ON the list of entrance requirements in English liter ature, as recently adopted by the Association of New England Colleges, stands Coleridge's Ancient Mariner. The selection is a happy one, for the reason that the poem, exquisite in melody and imagery, and abounding in nature-pictures equally remarkable for Wide range and delicate accuracy, nevertheless produces at first so vivid an impression of spectral horror as to blind the casual reader to its rare poetic grace and charm. But as the poem is dwelt upon in the class-room, the stu dent being brought to realize the marvellous succession of moonlight, ocean scenes, then the agonies of that dis ordered soul and the frightfulness of the images reflected from its guilty consciousness will but serve to throw into fairer contrast the blessedness of the Spirit restored to the life of love, and the peaceful beauty of the uni verse as beheld by eyes purged from selfishness and sin.
