Abstract [en]

This essay is a comparative analysis of stylistics in Iron Maiden’s adaptation of Samuel T. Coleridge’s Rime of the ancient mariner. The essay employs the following concepts: the poetic function of language, the referential function of language, parallelism, and meter to investigate stylistic differences and conformity between the two texts. Furthermore, the essay also discusses how the stylistic elements affect meaning, especially regarding the theme of sin and redemption, and the extent to which the meaning of Iron Maiden’s text conforms to, differs from, or is informed by Coleridge’s poem.
