The Ancient Mariner
The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge is one of those poems that many people know bits of but not necessarily just were they come form. It was one of the set texts for me way back when I was doing English Literature at GCE O Level, but I had forgotten all about it until I came across this statue in Watchet Harbour. Apparently it is still being used in schools today by students reading poetry in Key Stages 2 and 3 of the UK National Curriculum.The statue was unveiled in 2003 as a tribute to Samuel Taylor Coleridge who wrote the poem whilst travelling through Watchet and the surrounding area.The full poem may be found here, but be aware, it is rather long.
Yesterday, it seems, was my 1000th post on Shutterchance and I never noticed. In retrospect it appears quite serendipitous that it should have been of fellow photographers enjoying a Shutterchance meet.
