LIST OF ILLUSTRATIONS
Frontispiece
Vignette
Heading
‘And he stoppeth one of three’
‘He hold him with his glittering eye’
‘The ship was cheered, the harbor cleared’
‘Yet he cannot chuse but hear’
‘And a good south wind sprung up behind, the Albatross did follow’
‘I shot the Albatross’
‘As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean’
‘And I had done an hellish thing’
‘When that strange shape drove suddenly betwixt us and the Sun’
‘A speck, a mist, a shape, I wist’
‘The game is done! I’ve won! I’ve won!’
‘Alone on a wide wide sea’
‘Beyond the shadow of the ship I watched the water-snake’
‘And when I awoke it rained’
‘The helmsman steered, the ship moved on’
‘The spirit slid: and it was he, that made the ship to go’
‘And I fell down in a swound’
‘But why drives on that ship so fast’
‘We drifted o’er the harbor-bar’
‘And on the bay the moonlight lay’
‘Dear Lord! It hath a fiendish look’
‘Oh shrieve me, shrieve me, holy man!’
‘He prayeth well who loveth well’
