There are many who believe in the idea of fate deciding their future and therefore, they do not feel the need to take value in thinking before making decisions. However, the future is decided based on the actions of a person alone. Those actions, if done without thinking, will ultimately lead to a life of guilt. A future weighed down by relentless mental obsession with guilt and in turn social isolation is a fate sealed the moment one makes an ignorant decision. Two characters in literature that are meant to show these lasting negative repercussions of ignorant actions are Mary Shelley’s Victor Frankenstein and Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s mariner.
Mainly, letting go was his top priority. Shockingly, he stated in the story that everything was his fault after the initial conversation, as lonesomeness consumed him whole.

He wishes that he had good looks, friends, luck, skills and more opportunities and he wishes that he would think it’s weird to like the things he enjoys most. And in Sonnet 30 he has turned from that poem in away. He says in lines 1-4 he says that he sits in silence to remember the past and he gets depressed that he never got any of those things he once strived for and adds more tears to the ones he cried in Sonnet 29 for wasting time. Him doing all this is causing him to grieve about the grievances he once had to let go of but now has to recount each cry and cry about it again going through the same pain as before, Sonnet 29. But in the end of both Sonnets he gathers up his feelings and cries and stops once he thinks of a better thought Sonnet 29, Him being happy with himself, Sonnet 30, the thought of a dear friend.

It is now agreed that the best designation of the ode is a conversation poem that is an organic development of the loco-descriptive. The poem illustrates Wordsworth sister as the silent listener in the poem as she is addressed in the final sections of the verse.

As one of the most famous poets in the history of English Literature, John Keats is thought to be the epitome of the Romantic poet. He was a second generation Romantic poet along with others such as Lord Byron and Percy Shelley. Most of their works were written in the 1800s and followed the original romantic breakthrough of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Keats’ odes are best distinguished by the combination of opposites such as elation and anguish or bliss and desolation. ‘To Autumn’ and ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’ were both written by John Keats in 1819.
This made Sage understand that the past should not be the reason to live by. In addition, regret is another emotion that is evident throughout the novel. It is especially apparent with Joseph.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet is founder of English Romantic Movement. His best known poems are “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, “Kubla Khan” and “Christabel”. All of these three, especially “Kubla Khan” and “Christabel” are full of supernatural elements, which make poems closer to the Gothic poetry.

He quoted in Biographia Literaria chapter 13 that’ It [Imagination] dissolves, diffuses, dissipates in order to recreated.’ In part II after the Mariner killed the Albatross because he had nothing to eat in the ship, the atmosphere of the ventured sea has become harsher later where there’s nothing granting any good venture for his ship, which horrified the Mariner and the crews. The nature turned into anger as the wind, the sea, and the sun all come to horrify the ship as well as the later time, when the waves of the sea killed all of his sailors except the Ancient Mariner himself.
