This part of the poem is about respect. It is also about ignorance. The colours and atmosphere are important too, in the poem ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’ by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The colours evoked by fog, mist and sea haze, and also the colour of the albatross are pale whites and creams. This makes the albatross seem innocent, pure and trusting and it’s shape must have also appered as a cross (similar to the Christian symbol of goodness – the crucifix.) So, the ancient mariner murdered a trusting innocent being – and what is worse – he has no defence as the bird had no means of hurting him. To kill innocence is the worst crime and the sailors were sure to get no luck for the ‘sin’ of one became the sin of all. They were all doomed on the voyage by the act of one.
