All None

Hid in mist
Hermetically sealed setting primed for personal and moral reflection.
Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink
Like the mist before it, Coleridge uses setting to create a physical torment to the Mariner's mental/spiritual punishment. Reminiscent of Christian Purgatory.
Like God’s own head, the glorious sun
Coleridge's simile creates a figurative connection between nature, weather and God.
Day after day, day after day
Repetition utilised by Coleridge to stretch the monotony of the Mariner's punishment well past a single "day".
The very deep did rot: O Christ! / That ever this should be / Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs, / Upon the slimy sea
Setting utilising tropes and images typical of the Gothic genre and feelings of horror. Punishment and consequence, due to his own transgression. Seeing things through guilt.
Slimy sea
Negative imagery with sibilance and describes the tone of this particular section of the poem
Instead of the Cross, The Albatross / About my neck was hung
Reference to religion; the mariner's feeling of guilt Consequence from shipmates. Mark of Cain.
