The Ancient Mariner Big Band

am image

This found prose poem was prompted by a pair of connected things: the current daily Big Read of Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner [listen here] and my work with the Coleridge Memorial Trust.

This international reading is a wonderful idea and celebration of the poem, its relevance today argued by two engaging recent articles in The Guardian, here and here, if interested.

I look forward to the completion of the daily reads [not in the sense of rushing these to a close…] but to hear the whole, as the snippets do inevitably disrupt what should by the continuous storytelling of a potent narrative poem.
