Personification in The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner in Seven Parts 1
"Out of the sea came he!..."   (The Rime of the Ancient Mariner in Seven Parts)

Coleridge uses personification throughout this poem. By attributing human qualities to non-human elements, Coleridge gives them active roles in the story that help convey a variety of stronger impressions (supernatural, dangerous, serene) depending on the mood in different parts of the poem.
