Why Did The Mariner Kill The Albatross?

In the first part of the poem, the mariner is a sailor on a ship. He kills an albatross and then blames it on his crew. The albatross helps them find their way home, and the mariner kills it because it was lucky for him. His crew members didn’t understand why he killed the bird, and they thought he was crazy.

In Part 2, he goes crazy because he killed the albatross (as well as his crew). He ends up on an island where there are no trees or flowers or grass; everything is white. There’s nothing but snow everywhere. He sees a huge whale swimming around in circles, so he decides to kill it too.

In Part 3, he returns home when he realizes that killing all these animals wasn’t worth it because they were innocent creatures who just wanted to live their lives in peace like everybody else.
