Samuel Taylor Coleridge: A Spiritual Connection Between “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” and the Holy Scripture.

September 15, 2014

Many authors attempt to convey some sort of message in their writings, whether it be that of Romances’ by Shelley, the plight of women in the writings of Wollstonecraft, or the political satire behind Jonathan Swift’s works. It can even be said that some essays have been written to bring across a moral lesson to the reader. Homer’s epic poem “The Odyssey”, in which the main character is rescued by the Greek gods and then embarks on a journey to return to his homeland, all the while facing obstacles that test his faith, loyalty, and solidify his virtues and beliefs. Few authors have had the success Homer gained in his grand tale featuring the main character, Odysseus. Arguably, even fewer authors have tried to emulate the Christian faith within their works with much success. Mr. Samuel Taylor Coleridge is one such author. Coleridge’s lyrical ballad “The Rime of an Ancient Mariner” is one in which numerous religious themes are adequately complimented. Most notable of the comparisons is that of the Albatross and how it symbolizes Jesus Christ. In the ballad, Coleridge writes,
At length did cross an Albatross,
Thorough the fog it came;
As if it had been a Christian soul,
We hailed it in God’s name. (Mariner, Line 65).

In the ballad, the men on the ship had become lost, with mist, snow, and ice converging on them. Suddenly, from a distance within the mist and fog appears an Albatross to show the men on the ship the way to safety through the troublesome waters. Likewise, due to the Original sin committed by Adam and Eve while in the Garden of Eden, man has lost their way from God. As a result, man has wandered around this world lost, waiting for a savior to lead them through the troubled…...

...Melton Laurie Webb ENG 1123 #009 August 28, 2012 The death of Samuel was a tragedy that they could have avoided. Several individuals were responsible for his death. Samuel’s wild side played a part in his death. He was the type of boy that living the dangerous life was exciting to him. Samuel was the tough one, the brave one and tried to assume the role as leader to the other boys. He thought to do dangerous stuff and being loud was showing he was fearless and brave. The men in the cars knew that what the boys was doing was dangerous. They thought back to the days when they were young, and they did similar things. The men overlooked the behavior and did not try to stop the boys. These men are responsible for his death as well. The ladies in the cars were angry that the boys were causing an uproar on the cars. One lady wanted to speak up and try to stop them but she was ashamed to tell them to stop. She also is responsible for his death. The other lady that wanted to stand up and tell the boys she was going to call a cop did not mumble a word that also makes her responsible. The lady’s should have been adults and stopped their reckless behavior. The man that had less of some daring and wild younger days stood up and looked at the boys. He should have tried to talk with them about sitting or gone and spoke to the conductor. Instead this man pulled the cord and made the train come to a hard stop that threw Samuel head first to his death. Alfred, Calvin, and Tom......

Taylor Rule

...July 2003 Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland The Taylor Rule: A Guidepost for Monetary Policy? by Charles T. Carlstrom and Timothy S. Fuerst “It seems to me that a reaction function in which the real funds rate changes by roughly equal amounts in response to deviations of inflation from a target of 2 percent and to deviations of actual from potential output describes reasonably well what this committee has done since 1986. … If we wanted a rule I think the Greenspan Fed has done very well following such a rule, and I think that is what sensible central banks do.” Remarks by then Federal Reserve Governor Janet Yellen at the January 1995 FOMC meeting s The Taylor Rule Once a topic to be found only in scholarly economic journals, the Taylor rule is popping up regularly in news magazines, finance journals, and central bankers’ speeches. Does the Fed follow the rule? Should it? This Commentary explains what the Taylor rule is, discusses why it seems to describe Fed interest-rate setting, and argues that the rule is most valuable as a guideline rather than a prescription. The “rule” Yellen seems to advocate has become known as the Taylor rule, and it has caught the attention of researchers, policymakers, and the press. In a seminal 1993 paper, John Taylor, the current undersecretary of Treasury, claimed that adhering to a simple rule or strategy whereby the central bank sets the federal funds rate in response to two variables— inflation and deviations from potential......

Cottle Taylor

... – 13PGDM149 Cootle Taylor:Expanding oral care group in India Brinda Patel is the director of Cottle Taylor, an oral care firm which manufactures oral care, personal care and home care products. Michael Lang is her manager and he wants to increase the sales and market share of his company in the mid-range and high range oral care sector in emerging markets, due to declining sales revenue from US. Having had success in Thailand, Lang wants to implement similar strategies in India. Brinda having a more definitive idea of the Indian market is averse to the idea as she is aware of the low awareness of oral hygiene in many parts of India. If people do not understand the necessity, how would they be attracted to costlier oral care products like battery operated toothbrushes and their likes. Due to low discretionary spending and disassociation of health issues to not brushing regularly, Cottle faced a otugh market with low spending capacity in India. According to Lang, some of the alternatives to promote sales were focusing on marketing the premium products and persuading customers to switch to high range oral care products. Patel was more concerned with focusing on persuading consumers to brush for the first time and subsequently increasing incidence of brushing. Lang wanted to unevenly distribute advertising dollars across the three key points of focus that Cottle-Taylor wanted to project. But Patel was unsure if the increase in advertising dollars would increase sales. She...

Swift was ready at the age of fifteen to release an album with her own materials but the company wanted to wait until she was eighteen but she knew she was ready to launch her career with her own material, so she left that record company. At a café in Nashville, Swift caught the attention of Scott Borchetta, a DreamWorks records executive who was preparing to form his own independent record label, Big Machine records.

Carl Taylor

...In: Science Primary Health Care and Carl Taylor Comparison of the insights into Primary health care provided by Dr. Carl Taylor’s lecture with the insights provided from the other assigned lectures. In the lectures, it is clear to me that even though there has been differing philosophies between several prominent public health practitioners, their belief in the key Alma Ata pillars of Primary health care (Equity, Community participation and Intersectoral development) is definite. The WHO (1978) definition of Primary health still suffices and is still a reference even after decades of experimenting with different approaches in different settings. Carl Taylor, demonstrates this belief in his quote, “There is no universal solution, but there is a universal process to find appropriate local solutions.” Going through the videos and lectures, it is very inspiring that there have been wide innovative approaches to bringing health care closer to the people. The Comprehensive Rural Health Project – Jamkhed clearly demonstrates this. It has made tremendous efforts to bringing health closer to the people. The project has truly combined both horizontal methods of community participation and vertical approaches of pre-natal and post natal care, immunization, and prevention and treatment of some very common ailments. I was specifically intrigued by additional effort of this project in considering the eradication of other social problems like poverty and gender inequalities......

Taylor Swift

...Taylor Swift In the history of the music industry, there have been very few artists like Taylor Swift. It is extremely rare to find someone with several musical talents as well as an exceptional songwriting gift. From growing up on a Christmas tree farm in Pennsylvania to becoming one of the world’s most famous country singers, Taylor Swift has impacted the lives of many different types of people around the globe. With her parents Scott and Andrea, as well as her younger brother Austin, Swift grew up in the small Pennsylvanian town of Wyomissing. Before her interest in country music, Swift participated in a few children’s musical theater productions (Danielsen 1).

Samuel Johnson

...On April 15, 1755, Samuel Johnson published his two-volume Dictionary of the English Language. It wasn't the first English dictionary[->0] (more than 20 had appeared over the preceding two centuries), but in many ways it was the most remarkable. Unsuccessful as a schoolmaster in his hometown of Lichfield, Staffordshire (the few students he had were put off by his "oddities of manner and uncouth gesticulations"--most likely the effects of Tourette syndrome), Johnson moved to London in 1737 to make a living as an author and editor (Bate 162). After a decade spent writing for magazines and struggling with debt, he accepted an invitation from bookseller Robert Dodsley to compile a definitive dictionary of the English language. Dodsley solicited the patronage of the Earl of Chesterfield[->1], offered to publicize the dictionary in his various periodicals, and agreed to pay Johnson the considerable sum of 1,500 guineas in installments (Bate 164).In his "Plan of a Dictionary of the English Language," published in August 1747, Johnson announced his ambition to rationalize spellings[->2], trace etymologies[->3], offer guidance on pronunciation[->4], and "preserve the purity, and ascertain the meaning of our English idiom[->5] (Bate 167)." Preservation and standardization were primary goals: "One great end of this undertaking," Johnson wrote, "is to fix the English language."In other European countries around this time, dictionaries had been assembled by large committees.

... Porter 5 Forces: 1.) The threat of new entry: The threat of new entry in the specialty retail market is medium. According to Wiki invest in the past 10/15 years the number of independent retailers have decreased. The reason why the number of retail stores are decreasing is because a lot of the independent retailers are becoming chain stores, or either owned by large corporations or franchised (McCarthy, 2007). Ann Taylor and New York & Company are the leading specialty retailers of women apparel, meaning that a lot of specialty retail store (Director, 2007). Furthermore meaning that the competitive advantage of Ann Taylor, New York & Company is very strong, which puts a stain on new entrees. 2.) The bargaining power of the buyer: The bargaining of the buyer is low to medium.

Taylor Swift

...ready to take down my opponent. The artist that motivates me the most and has had the most impact on my life would have to be Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift’s story begins on December 13th, 1989, in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. Taylor began writing songs at the age of five and when she turned fifteen she released her first album. Her grandmother was a professional opera singer so Taylor began to follow in her footsteps. She sang the Star Spangled Banner at a 76ers when she was eleven years old.

...Baez 1 Daryl Baez Professor Loren Hoekzema English 102 08 28 September 2015 Response to Samuel Grace Paley opens the story with “Some boys are very tough. They are afraid of Nothing”, which to me leaves it open to danger and even death. It is a story that deals with risk and individualism. The action of the boys can be considered risky at best. The four boys were jiggling and hopping on the platform between the locked doors of the subway cars. Some men were observing their actions and at first thought of how much fun this must be given the weather conditions, but then they seemed to come to their senses and thought how “stupid” their actions clearly were giving how “little” they are. Some of them even thought of the brave things they did when they were young and thus jiggling did not seem so risky. The women on the other hand were angry at the boys’ actions and hoped they could see their extreme disapproval on their faces. One of them wanted to warn the boys, but given three of them being Negroes she feared embarrassment. However when the train came to a sudden slowdown she came to tell the boys that they would get hurt or even killed. Samuel, one of the four boys, just happened to be the one that was laughing the hardest at their reprimand. When a man whose childhood had been more watchful than brave, became angry and decided to pull on the emergency brake, it was Samuel who fell head first to be crushed and killed between the cars. The story also deals......

Samuel, Saul and Solomon

...201540 BIBL105 Oct 21, 2015 As Samuel, one of the last great judges, aged he made his sons, Joel and Abijah, judges. However, his sons did not follow in his steps, they were greedy, took bribes and perverted justice. Known as the “Sea Peoples,” the Philistines migrated across the Mediterranean in massive numbers during the time of the judges, taking the coastal plains during this time and pushing Israel into the hill country. Since the Philistines had a monopoly on the use of iron, they had a military advantage over Israel. The aggressive military behavior by the Philistines caused Israel to long for a king to fight their battles. The elders of Israel came to Samuel and insisted that he a select a king. The people wanted a king to govern them so that they may be like all the nations. Samuel warned them the ways of a king , he will take your sons to be his horsemen, to plow his ground, to reap his harvest and to make equipment. He will take your daughters to be perfumers, cooks, and bakers. He will take a tenth of your grain and your flocks and make you his slaves. “The day when you cry out because of the king whom you yourselves have chose; and the Lord will not answer you on that day” (I Samuel 9.16). But the people would not listen. There was a Benjamite, named Kish, a man of wealth and valor. He had a son Saul who was more handsome than most and a head taller than anyone. And Samuel said to all the people, Do you see him whom the Lord has chosen, that none like him is...
