The Rime of the Modern Mariner
“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)
