In your question concerning Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” you don’t identify what you mean by “this act.”  I’ll assume you mean the act of killing the albatross.The mariner kills the albatross for no good reason.  He does it for fun or for entertainment or because he is bored.  By killing the albatross, he disrespects nature.  He demonstrates that he sees humans as having dominion over nature.In the world of the poem, this is a big mistake.  He, the ship, and the other sailors pay severe consequences for his mistake.This reveals the theme of the poem.  People should live at one with nature and respect it.  There is importance in all of nature’s creatures.
