Desire Analysis

Author: Poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge Type: Poetry Views: 820

Where true Love burns Desire is Love's pure flame;

It is the reflex of our earthly frame,

That takes its meaning from the nobler part,

And but translates the language of the heart.

I'm now reading The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, so a more comlpete response to your earlier question is still forthcoming. But here are a couple of things that might help us along. I notice that the Ancient Mariner is first alluded to by Walton in his second letter, where he basically reassures his sister that though he's traveling to the land of mist and snow, don't worry, because he won't be killing an albatrosses along the way. The next time the Ancient Marine is alluded to is by Victor Frankenstein in 4.6 (chapter 4, paragraph 6) of Volume 1. Here, highly remorseful and agitated about having created the creature, he quotes lines from the Ancient Mariner that speak of the mariner's being haunted by his past transgression (the killing of the albatross), just as Victor is haunted by what he's created. One kills; the other creates but both perceive of what they've done as evil and transgressive. The mariner travels the world over, telling anyone who will listen to revere God's creatures. Victor, by contrast, travels the world over, chasing what he's created, warning others about how evil this creature is. All this leads me to think that the killing of the albatross alludes to Frankenstein's creative act as a sort of unforgivable transgression. In other words, ironically enough, Frankenstein's act of creation turns murderous. But I'll say more later when I finish the poem.

This poem is about the author's definition of a pasionnate love. It might as well be an ode to passion. In a way it is a contrast, because Love can never be pure. Love hurts and burns. And in a metaphoric and true way of defining it; a flame- fire does burn. All in one sentence, they present a variety of aspects that make the reader think. Love cannot be true. Moreover, it is a metaphor for love and fire, since often we associate passion to a fiery fire. We act as though we have been taught to do so- like a frame, like a mold.- may it be sometimes unnatural, or unloyal love. But when we refer to it, we will never mention dishonnesty, but its nobler part, the part we want to beleive. And then, by our own accordance and understanding, we translate it to our loved one. This is the message the author wanted to transmit.
