Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s story of an epic sea journey, written in 1797, centres around the killing of a harmless sea-bird - the albatross. The havoc wreaked by this pointless act of vandalism explodes into one of the most popular and best loved poems in the English language.

In an age that is increasingly aware of humanity’s relationship to, and dependence upon the environment, Coleridge’s ‘poem of the biosphere’ is undergoing a popular revival. And no wonder; it is a rollicking good yarn suffused with elements of the gothic and the downright ghostly... ‘an unforgettable story told in unforgettable language’.
