Abstract / Summary

Based on a talk given at Falmouth University’s 2011 Illustration Forum: 'Metamorphosis: Interpretation and Adaptation in Illustration', this paper discusses three recent adaptations of ST Coleridge's poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, with a focus on how the poem's imagery resonates with emergent cultural concerns framed by the notion of 'eco-spirituality'. Shortly after that 2011 forum, some of the ecological themes that I look at here were given a new and urgent contemporary twist in Nick Hayes’ 2011 graphic novel The Rime of the Modern Mariner. I haven’t included a discussion of that here, having recently talked about Hayes’ book at length in another article – Us and Them: Ecocide, Empathy and the Eco-Fable.
