Literature Reader (C10)

Animal life is as sacred as human life. Describe how ancient mariner and other sailors suffered because the ancient mariner had killed the albatross.

Answer

Killing of the Albatross considered a sin / an act against God - the suffering that followed the act - stuck in the middle of the ocean, very hot, no winds, boards shrinking / decaying, no water, thirsty, felt hopeless / helpless / imminent death - unnatural happenings, anger against the Ancient Mariner
