Subject:        Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Although I realize that this topic is not Shakespeare, I thought that perhaps I
would try an idea on SHAKSPERians, hoping that the theme of dead English poets
would be acceptable.

I am attempting to put together a one-man show of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's
_Rime of the Ancient Mariner_.  The show would have background music and would
consist mainly of the Mariner on board a ship, telling the tale as the audience
sees it happen.

Can this work?  Is Coleridge's language not appropriate for entertainment
beyond reading appreciation and analyzation?  I would be grateful for the
opinions of SHAKSPERians, which I value highly.

Thank you.
Ian Doescher
