For instance, after the Mariners crew was taken from him because of his decision to kill the albatross he was forced to “look upon the rotting deck,” where all of his “dead men lay” (Coleridge 7). The Mariner is tortured by his isolation whenever he looks back at his mistakes. His choice to kill the albatross forced him into isolation which slowly eroded his will to live. Similar to the way the Mariner was tortured by his mistake, Victor is led to his demise after he “swears...to pursue the demon who caused this misery” (Frankenstein 193). Victors isolation corrupted his mind into thinking that the only path left to take was to hunt down his creation until it ended in his own or the creature’s death.
In Act 5, scene 3, Romeo says, “You desperate pilot, let's crash this sea-weary ship into the rocks! Here's to my love!. .

The boys will kill a human on the island again, and will continue to show how Simon was unsuccessful at being a Christ figure on the
It doesn’t shed any new light onto the sirens besides the fact that they will lie to kill the sailors that still continue to find themselves into the sirens’ domain. They sing sweet words to lull the sailor that they might be able to save them but alas at the end it is too late when the sailors realize they have died. In conclusion, the siren in this poem is sarcastic, modern, humourous, and a trickster to do its job which is to kill sailors.
