The sailors play an important role in ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’. They are fickle-minded. They change their views according to the situations they are in. They condemned the ancient Mariner for killing the albatross. The innocent and auspicious bird had brought a favourable south wind for them. His arrival proved lucky as the icebergs cracked and the ship was steered through. However, soon they started justifying the killing of the albatross. The bird had brought the mist and the snow. They are fickle-minded and hollow.
