    Percy Shelley saw the world for what it was, and what it will be He saw through the cracks of civilisation and human greed he saw what man has become and will always be unless he changes Ozymandias is a simple homage to human power, to human corruption and to human ruling This is a poem with true universal value I met a traveller from an antique land,Who said Two vast and trunkless legs of stoneStand in the desert Near them, on the sand,Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,And wrinkled [...]

    In preparation for reading Connie Willis s latest novella, I Met a Traveller in an Antique Land, I went back and read Percy Bysshe Shelly s famous Romantic era sonnet Ozymandias, which is the source for her title and informs her story Here s the poem in its entirety I met a traveller from an antique land, Who said Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert Near them, on the sand, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that [...]

    The Legacy of Rameses10 January 2012 This is a rather short poem, a sonnet to be precise, being a poem of sixteen lines with a specific metre Now, while I like poetry, I would hardly call myself a poet in that my skill in writing metre is not the best, and in many cases I fall into a system of rhyme, which I find to be pretty corny at least to my ears This does not mean that I have not attempted poetry in my life, and many of the poems that I have written tend to be rather short none of the epic [...]

    Fame, power, moneyl are temporary Everything is subjected to time and time swallows them up Man is insignificant before the power of time The poet uses a shattered statue to highlight the ephemeral nature of fame, vanity and power The one great king s proud words My name is Ozymandias, king of kings, Look upon my work, ye mighty and despair has been ironically disproved Ozymandias works and might have crumbled to pieces His civilization has disappeared and all has been razed or brought to the gr [...]

    My name is Ozymandias, king of kings Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair Nothing beside remains Round the decayOf that colossal wreck, boundless and bareThe lone and level sands stretch far away Beautiful Yet in a way, very telling of the insignificance of our lives Power, fame and money all only exist from the time we are born until the time we die, then slowly but surely time and nature are sure to forget about us Even our own species forgets, thus making us buried in the sands of obscuri [...]

    A great poem, that talks about the power and mighty of the great pharaoh Ramses II Ozymandias that crumbled My name is Ozymandias,King of kingsLook on my works,Ye mighty and despair this might be the most memorable quote in the poem, we can understand how the the author and may be even the pharaoh though of him as the king of kings.And to be honest, a poem as powerful and beautiful like this one wouldn t deserve a rank of five star it would deserve like an eight star rank

    A very short but striking poem by the guy who was having sex with the girl who wrote Frankenstein Fucking there s your contextual analysis, Mr Oxford don, you

    Nothing lasts forever Glory, reputation, conquests or occupations, everything will come to an end eventually This ambiguous ode carries between its folds heaps of philosophical matters Scholars really tired themselves giving different interpretations for this poem and many others I believe that the beauty of a poem lies in the multiplicity of its interpretations by each person Everyone has his own vision and saying about what he reads, sees or hears and there is no right or wrong when it comes t [...]

    Nation s Favourite Poems features in a 1996 nationwide poll compilation.From wiki t is frequently anthologised and is probably Shelley s most famous short poem It was written in competition with his friend Horace Smith, who wrote another sonnet entitled Ozymandias Famous it might be, and the subject grand, it just doesn t do it for me.

    .d Nothing beside remains Round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare , the lone and level sands stretch far away These last lines of the sonnet stay with you as the poem unearths the ephemeral essence of life and hits you with it immediately

    I have always loved this poem especially since I have spent so much time in Egpyt, at Luxor I will and have read this poem many,many times throughout my entire lifetime It resonates within my soul, as I realize not just that all is transitory Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair.

    This is one of those practically perfect poems that you can have endless destructions on I also love the rhythm.

    Some strange but wonderful musings in the book I am a huge fan of Shelley and his revolutionary technique of writing.

    Patton was on tonight, and this poem came to my mind while I was watching it I have no idea why.It s no secret that I can t stand poetry, but I do have a couple of poems that I love, and this is one of them I was introduced to it in well, I don t know I definitely read it in 12th grade English, but I might ve hit it in ninth grade as well, and possibly seventh If I m right about the other two years, then the Henrico county public school system really liked it.This is so short I ll just put it ri [...]

    To say that this poem in poignant is like saying the sky is blue There are so many people who need to realize that most monuments built unto oneself wind up on the trash heap of history.

    Short, but mesmerizing poem great example that nothing stands against time, nor power, nor fame, nor money.even the huge empire that once was stretched across the desert, now is covered with sand and dust TV Show Breaking Bad made one of the best episode by this name, which is clear visualization of what this poem represents The Fall My name is Ozymandias, king of kings Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair Nothing beside remains Round the decayOf that colossal wreck, boundless and bareThe lo [...]

    This is a review and ranking of the poem, rather than the book noted above.I met a traveller from an antique landWho said Two vast and trunkless legs of stoneStand in the desert Near them, on the sand,Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,Tell that its sculptor well those passions readWhich yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed And on the pedestal these words appear My name is Ozymandia [...]

    This is poem with true universal value I MET a traveller from an antique landWho said Two vast and trunkless legs of stoneStand in the desert Near them, on the sand,Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,Tell that its sculptor well those passions readWhich yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed And on the pedestal these words appear My name is OZYMANDIAS, king of kings Look on my works, [...]

    This poem shows that even the powerful people such as Ozymandias, after they died nothing will remain round Ozymandias thought that he was the king of kings that nobody like him in the world He was arrogant and very proud of himself, but nowhere is just a piece of history Even his statue is destroyed by nature s destruction of his human vanity To conclude, power has a limit, has a period and nothing is immortal.

    Easily my all time favorite poem While it s all about the intransience of human creations, for me it s promising than melancholy Certainly, my own works will someday be little than dust upon which greater works stand, but this also means that the harmful works of mankind shall someday be forgotten It s a reminder to be humble, but also hopeful.

    Short and because of that, and its inherent value, worth reading a couple times in succession I read it first to get a grasp of what it was then, then to dig into the meaning, then to address the meter and mechanics Worthwhile.

    I had to look up and read this poem after reading a book titled The Shattered Visage Lies, because the line shattered visage lies is in this poem Logical, right.

    Shelley isn t my favorite Romantic, but Ozymandias is killer I love this poem If you read one poem from him, try this one I also think the title should be the name of a heavy metal band How about Ozymandias and the Romantics Anyone want to join me

    this is epic i shows how no matter how powerful or feared you are in your time, once you die it is over look ye mighty and despair i love the language he used.
