I left out the following three sentences. Thank you very much.

1) Nature, in fact, was a friend and comforter to man, the only great teacher from which, by penetrating into her divine essence, man could learn virtue and wisdom.
2) The mission of the poet, like that of a prophet or a priest, was therefore to open men’s souls to the inner reality of Nature and to the calm, meditative joy she can offer us. In Coleridge’s The Rime of the ancient Mariner nature is again personified and presented as a living being. Unlike in Wordsworth, nature is not seen as a moral guide but as endowed (?) with abstract, supernatural meanings. The storm, for example, is represented as a huge bird, chasing the ship with its large wings.
3) The ice, on the other hand, is first connoted as a magic element and suddenly turns into a dangerous creature. The fact that it surrounds the ship can be interpreted as a symbol of paralyses reinforced by the mist which increases the atmosphere of uncertainty and mystery.
