But then I read Nick Hayes's The Rime of the Modern Mariner and my doubts fell away. This is a beautiful book.

But then I read Nick Hayes's The Rime of the Modern Mariner and my doubts fell away. The text might not be so rich as the original – Hayes's nylon nets and polythene bags did not work on this reader quite so effectively as Coleridge's "death-fires" and "witch's oils" – but the illustrations more than make up for this. As a draughtsman, Hayes here places himself firmly in an English romantic tradition that includes Thomas Bewick and Eric Gill, Samuel Palmer and Stanley Spencer

Nick Hayes' The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is in part based on Samuel Taylor . Nick Hayes is an original talent and just a short perusal of the book will convince anyone of that

Nick Hayes' The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is in part based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," updated with an environmental theme. I found it in my local used bookstore, The Looking Glass, and it is a beautiful thing to behold. Nick Hayes is an original talent and just a short perusal of the book will convince anyone of that.

He has won two Guardian media awards. Awesome art style! Th Rime of the Modern Mariner is a modern take on The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, but unlike the Ancient Mariner it focus's on pollution. 3 people found this helpful.

An extraordinary, timely update on the classic Coleridge poem Is it possible to update a masterpiece? Only, perhaps, with a brand-new masterpiece. Written in 1797, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" was the original eco-fable; drawn in 2010, The Rime of the Modern Mariner is a graphic novel, now set in the cesspool of the North Atlantic Garbage Patch-thus adding a timely and resonant message about the destruction of our seas.

Along with other poems in Lyrical Ballads, it is often considered a signal shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic literature.

Deep in a polluted city, a worker escapes his office for a sandwich on a park bench. The Rime of the Modern Mariner is a recasting of Coleridge's famous poem - now, though, the fantastical voyage is one of environmental disaster

He holds him with his glittering eye - The Wedding-Guest stood still, And listens like a three years' child: The Mariner hath his will

He holds him with his glittering eye - The Wedding-Guest stood still, And listens like a three years' child: The Mariner hath his will. The Wedding-Guest sat on a stone: He cannot choose but hear; And thus spake on that ancient man, The bright-eyed Mariner. The ship was cheered, the harbour cleared, Merrily did we drop Below the kirk, below the hill, Below the lighthouse top. The sun came up upon the left, Out of the sea came he!

Hayes's visually striking debut is drawn with complex, iconic images reminiscent of old woodcuts. Powerful and evocative, lush and stark, The Rime of the Modern Mariner will appeal to fans of Habibi and Persepolis.

Hayes's visually striking debut is drawn with complex, iconic images reminiscent of old woodcuts. Emerging from every exquisite page are the poem's enduring themes: compassion for nature, a sense of connection among all living things, and rightful outrage at man's thoughtless destruction of the environment.

The mariner in Hayes’s tale tells of his spell stuck in the North Pacific gyre, the scene of extreme environmental degradation and a shocking picture of what Man has done to the planet and its inhabitants. Saved from death and haunted by what he has seen, he roams the land, telling his cautionary tale to anyone who will listen. How successful Hayes’s polemic is will depend on how much indulgence you have for lines such as, So I turned around frustrated/ And looked across the sea/ And saw we were surrounded by a wash of polythene.

And thus spake on that ancient man, The bright-eyed Mariner. The Sun came up upon the left, Out of the sea came he! And he shone bright, and on the right. The ship was cheered, the harbour cleared, Merrily did we drop. Below the kirk, below the hill, Below the lighthouse top. Went down into the sea. Higher and higher every day, Till over the mast at noon-'. The Wedding-Guest here beat his breast, For he heard the loud bassoon.
