So, time to get out of the closet: I am a teacher, or better, I got to the license to be one, and I will be returning to that job in February, as it seems now. That means I am obviously interested in all sorts of material on Coleridge from a didactic angle, too.
One of these days, I found this very entertaining video of a lecture on “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”. Personally, I think it’s damn brilliant! What I would like give special mention is the mastership of the speaker, when he manages to find present day comparisons to Coleridge’s imagery. Very effective, if a tad trivial, but for people unitiated in the topic, extremely useful.
So, without further ado, enjoy!
…And if you happen to know where the guy teaches, let me know. Awesomesauce.
