The Gold Horns ( The specimen of Romantic Revival in the history of Scandinavion Literature
This famous poem is considered to have the same place in Scandinavian Literature, that can be compared to the "Ancient Mariner" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in English Literature, a poet of the Romantic age. In English Literature Coleridge made supernatural his special domain. In this poem Coleridge introduces the readers to a supernatural realm, with a phantom ship, a crew of dead men, the overwhelming curse of the albatross, the polar spirit, the magic breeze, and a number of other supernatural things and happenings, but he manages to create a sense of absolute reality conerning these manifest absurdities. The whole is an outcome of a vision.
