    The corpses - the rhyme of the ancient mariner

    I am doing an essay on Frankenstein, which may sound strange, but in chapter five there is an extract from this poem. I have already interpretated it literally, and i was thinking along the lines of the fact that the mariner first veiwed the corpses negatively and then he described them as beautiful, which reflects the readers journey in Frankenstein when they believe the monster is evil, and then realise he just wants a friend. If that makes sense, it does to me lol! but i just need a negative quote for the corpses and a positive one. If any one could help that would be great if not it doesn't matter thanks xx
