the poem relates to the experience of a mariner who has returned from a voyage,the marines stops a man going to attend a wedding ceremony and stars reciting his story of the long sea-voyage. the wedding guest's reactions turn from bemusement to impatience and fear to fascination as the mariner's story progress;as can be seen in the style of the language. coleridge uses narrative teaching such as personification and repeatation to create either a sense of danger, of the supernatural or of serenity depend on each part of the poem.
