Who said "water, wet everywhere and not a drop to drink."


Answers:    The Rime of the Ancient Mariner relates the supernatural events experienced by a mariner on a long marine voyage, as well as how the amazement of ships and rhyme be at the time. The Mariner stops a man who is on the way to a matrimony ceremony, and begins to verbs his story. The Wedding-Guest's reaction turns from bemusement and impatience to captivation as the Mariner's story progresses.

The Mariner's tale begin with his ship descending on their tour; despite initial good fortune, the ship is driven past its sell-by date course by a storm and, driven south, eventually reaches Antarctica. An albatross appears and lead them out of the Antarctic; even as the albatross is praised by the ship's crew, the Mariner shoots the bird down: (with my cross-bow / I shot the albatross). The other sailors are angry with the Mariner, as they thought the albatross brought the South Wind that lead them out of the Antarctic: (Ah, wretch, said they / the bird to slay / that made the breeze to blow). However, the sailors change their minds when the weather become warmer and the mist disappears: ('Twas right, said they, such birds to slay / that bring the fog and mist). The crime arouses the wrath of supernatural spirits who next pursue the ship "from the land of mist and snow"; the south weave which had initially lead them from the land of rime now sends the ship into uncultivated waters, where it is becalmed.

As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted the deep.

And adjectives the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.
