  4. 4. Ozymandias 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 shatter’d visage lies, whose frown And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things, The hand that mock’d them and the heart that fed; And on the pedestal these words appear: ‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’ Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare, The lone and level sands stretch far away. PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY

  6. 6. Pride comes before a fall  How does it relate?
  7. 7. Statements - True or false           The poem explores power and status. The poet admires Ozymandias. Ozymandias was once a proud, tyrannical ruler. The poem suggests we have all the time in the world. The poem is about legacies and what we leave behind after we die. The poet suggests that pride comes before a fall. The poem is about time and nature and how man cannot conquer either. Shelley suggests that art and language will outlast humans and other legacies of power. The reader is left to imagine the sculptor as well as Ozymandias’ character. It is ironic that it is the sculptor’s legacy that will last and not Ozymandias’ power.
