The curse of killing the innocent and auspicious bird, the albatross never left the ancient Mariner in peace. The albatross hung around his neck all the times reminding him of his sin. So the signs of distress were clearly visible on the old Mariner’s face. The Wedding-Guest felt as if some ‘fiends’ were plaguing him. Ultimately, the old Mariner revealed what was troubling him. The terrible act of killing the albatross lay heavy on his mind and heart.
