The poem is full of strange, uncanny or supernatural elements. Discuss how these elements appear in the poem. You should consider:
— the strange weather;
— the albatross as a bird of “good omen”
— the spirit from “the land of mist and snow”
— the strange slimy creatures seen in the sea
— the ocean appearing to rot
— the death fires and sea water being referred to as witch’s oil
Now write a paragraph about the supernatural elements in the poem and how they add to the events that take place in the poem.
