An extraordinary, timely update on the classic Coleridge poem
Is it possible to update a masterpiece? Only, perhaps, with a brand-new masterpiece. Written in 1797, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” was the original eco-fable; drawn in 2010, The Rime of the Modern Mariner is a graphic novel, now set in the cesspool of the North Atlantic Garbage Patch—thus adding a timely and resonant message about the destruction of our seas.
Hayes’s visually striking debut is drawn with complex, iconic images reminiscent of old woodcuts. Emerging from every exquisite page are the poem’s enduring themes: compassion for nature, a sense of connection among all living things, and rightful outrage at man’s thoughtless destruction of the environment. Powerful and evocative, lush and stark, The Rime of the Modern Mariner will appeal to fans of Habibi and Persepolis.

Nick Hayes is a political cartoonist for The Guardian and was a founding editor of Meat Magazine, which showcased new writing, comics, and illustrations. He has won two Guardian media awards.Review:
"Nick Hayes has somehow or other managed to channel and combine the spirits of Coleridge, William Morris, the Romantic poets, most American 60s underground comix artists, probably Eric Gill, possibly a hippy chick who once offered you a bowl of lentils at Glastonbury and doubtlessly the fiercest eco-warrior you can imagine... and succeeded in producing something simultaneously poetical, polemical and frequently beautiful. An extraordinary achievement." -- Martin Rowson "The Rime of the Modern Mariner achieves a powerful cumulative effect, and the Mariner's environmental message will surely influence many readers who will never casually discard another plastic carrier bag or water bottle" -- Paul Gravett * Times Literary Supplement *
