comment What does it mean to “beat one's breast”?
Would you say that he is expressing sorrow for the mariner? How would that fit with the second quote where he is beating his breast on hearing the bassoon? Is he maybe expressing sorrow at the situation of having to listen to the mariner instead of being able to enjoy the festivities of the wedding?
