The killing of the innocent and auspicious bird brought a great deal of sufferings to all the mariners. The bird had brought a favourable south wind. After his death, the ship was stuck in the silent sea. The wind stopped blowing. The ship refused to move and was stuck at one point. The ocean seemed to be boiling and the water burnt like a witch’s oils. In their dreams they saw a spirit following them to avenge the death of the albatross.
