There may be some disagreement as to where the precise climax of this haunting and mysterious poem lies, but to my mind the climax occurs in Part IV of the poem when the Mariner is finally able to rid himself of the sign of guilt that has hung around his neck since he shot the albatross and killed it towards the beginning of the narrative.
