The first point I am going to write about is that the Mariner is stuck in the middle of an unknown area and now that they are stuck, the Mariner is forced to suck his own blood to stay alive. Secondly, when all hope is lost, they see a boat in the distance but it has women and another figure that looks like death. Thirdly, she says I have won and then it suddenly goes dark while the boat vanishes. Then finally, something weird goes around the sheep that crew on the ship are dropping dead on the ship but it hasn’t yet happened to the Mariner. The metaphor I am going to talk about is ‘Fear at my heart, as at a cup, My life blood seemed to slip. I think this is saying like he is not actually drinking but it is like he is drinking his own despair.
