Wordsworth and Coleridge
Poems in the Romantic Period can be referred to as incidents of life. They involve every aspect of life such as love, guilt, sinning, and even death. Specifically William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge have written many poems that have dealt with great emotions and imagination but they do not exclude the society or common man in their imaginations. This is why sometimes these two poets have even been called "visionary poets." They

The bird may represent God. For example, in line123, the mariner even shouts "O Christ" referring to the albatross that has brought him such bad luck. The mariner goes through the process of sinning and then feeling guilty. The ocean, or the environment for the people, is even described sometimes as unpleasant and gross, which would represent the environment for the common man. In Coleridge's viewpoint the environment does not adjust for the common man.
