The mariner is very detailed and vivid about the ship leaving the harbour. The wedding guest is mesmerised by the event. The ship moved South happily enjoying reletively good weather at first,

The ship was cheer'd, the harbour clear'd, Merrily did we drop Below the kirk, below the hill,  Below the lighthouse top.

 

 

After the Mariner shoots the albatross, he experiences both shame and guilt. What is the difference between these 2 emotions
