Coleridge was to write about the supernormal in such a way that the ordinary person would be able to believe such occurrences could happen.

Contrasts In Rime Of The Ancient Mariner - 533 words
In the "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", Coleridge uses many contrasts. Some of the contrasts are very blatant, while other are more subtle. Some of these contrasts include the sun and the moon. Another contrast Coleridge introduces in this poem is the contrast of love verses hate. Also included in this poem is the contrast that particularly struck me is the contrast between white and color.

Rime Of The Ancient Mariner - 387 words
In Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the author uses the story of a sailor and his adventures to reveal aspects of life. This tale follows the Mariner and his crew as they travel between the equator and the south pole, and then back to England. The author's use of symbolism lends the work to adults as a complex web of representation, rather than a children's book about a sailor. First, in the poem, the ship symbolizes the body of man. The ship experiences trials and tribulations just as a real person does. Its carrying the Mariner (symbolizing the individual soul) and crew shows that Coleridge saw the body as a mere vessel of the soul. This symbol of a boat is a ...

Geographers have called this landmass the Bering Land Bridge or Beringia. Further, due to the glaciation much of the natural vegetation shifted southwards. The animals that are today found in cold regions followed them. For instance, the reindeer, lemmings etc. then lived in places that are extremely warm for them today. Archaeological evidence shows that the walrus existed in parts of Virginia during that age. The first American Indians were hunters and gatherers who stayed in bands of twenty to fifty people ...

Throughout Odysseus' many adventures in his efforts to return home to Ithaca, Homer describes many various cultures that his title character meets along the way. Though many of these cultures could be identified as subcultures of the Greek world, each has unique qualities that separate it from the other cultures. Chief among these qualities is the set of values and morals that serve to define a culture's viewpoint toward life. This is no different in regards to the Phaeacian society on whose land Odysseus washes ashore after leaving Calypso's Island. The Phaeacian value system is aligned to support the society's seafaring nature and love of the sea. As a result, the system of values rotates ...

A History Of Marine Science - 1,074 words
The early history of marine science started about 11,000 years ago. Nomads began voyaging into east and central Europe, and across the plains of central Asia. They journeyed to the shores of northeastern Asia and crossed the Bering Sea into North America and South America. Most traveled on foot except for those who were talented in raft building or navigation. Any coastal culture with these talents had big economical advantages and greater access to food or supplies. But when European explorers set out to find the world, they were met by islanders at almost every chunk of land they found. The first evidence of voyaging comes from records of trade in the Mediterranean Sea. The Greeks started ...

In The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner, Coleridge brings us into a world of magical fantasy. Using many poetic devices, he takes us along the voyage to the ends of the earth and back, following a magical old mariner. Beginning at the end, the story of the seamans travels bring him to a lovely wedding ceremony, forcing himself upon an unsuspecting guest, and he tells the tale, which has changed the mariner into the ghastly figure he is today. In the end of this almost epic poem, the ancient mariner (Coleridge) changes the conceptions of the wedding guest (the reader), making him a sadder and wiser man. In this process, only the healing hands of this lonesome hermit can remove the sin from the mar ...

Even though the actual term neuroscience only dates back to the 1970s, the study of the brain is as old as science itself.

New findings, new discoveries are always changing what we know, or think we know, about the brain. In a collection of narratives by Oliver Sacks entitled, The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat, we see the suffering of those with neurological diseases, their attempts to cope with these diseases and the conclusions that Sacks makes on their conditions.

Venus is the 2nd closest planet to the Sun, and the closest planet to Earth. Venus can reach visual magnitudes (brightness) of -4.4, making it the brightest object in the night sky, excluding the moon. Venus was once considered Earth's twin, a swampy place with oceans and strange creatures were imagined. After sending probes such as Mariner, Pioneer Venus, Venera (which landed on Venus), Vega, Magellan and Galileo, we know that Venus is the victim of a "run-away" greenhouse effect. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun. If Venus is the planet with a runaway "greenhouse effect", then Mars is the antithesis; it doesn't have enough Carbon - Dioxide to trap enough of the Sun's energy for water ...
