The Ancient Mariner's curse was that he was be destined to tell his tale to others from beginning to end when an agonizing, physical urge struck him. The Ancient Mariner tells the Wedding Guest that he wanders from country to country, and has a special instinct that tells him to whom he must tell his story. After he tells it, he is temporarily relieved of his agony.
