Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (oral reading in MP3)

Part Four of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's classic poem 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' is hauntingly read aloud by Lynne Hand (aka Teacher). Ms. Hand, who offers free English language training (see her website here), holds the copyright to the recording. She has kindly made the audio file available through the Internet Archive. Marine Café Blog is sharing it for your personal, non-commerical use (1.7 MiB, MP3, 3:10 minutes)

In Coleridge's 7-part poem, an old mariner stops one of three young men on their way to a wedding party and mesmerises him with the tale of how he killed an albatross and brought bad luck to himself and his fellow sailors. It is a story of sin, suffering and redemption.CLICK HERE to download an illustrated edition of 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'.
