Short Poems by Percy Bysshe Shelly Before you travel any further, please know that there may be some thorny academic terminology ahead. Never fear we are here

  • 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 its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:And on the pedestal these words appear::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

Destruction
Destruction Before you travel any further, please know that there may be some thorny academic terminology ahead. Never fear we are here

  • The statue that inspired the poem was partially destroyed, and the poem frequently reminds us that the statue is in ruins. The dilapidated state of the statue symbolizes not only the erosive processes of time, but also the transience of political leaders and regimes.

  • Line 2: The "legs" of the statue don't have a torso ("trunkless").

  • Line 4: The statue's head is "shatter'd" and partly buried in the sand.

  • Line 11: The inscription implores the viewer to "look on" Ozymandias's "works." One of those "works" is the statue described in the poem, and it's only a pair of legs and a "shatter'd" head.

  • Line 12-13: The statue is described as in a state of "decay" and as a "colossal wreck."


  • Line 13-14: We're assuming this statue wasn't always in the middle of nowhere – there must have been some kind of temple or pyramid nearby. Not anymore; the area around the statue is "bare" and the desert is "lone," or empty. The traveler calls our attention to the barrenness of the desert through the extensive use of alliteration (beginning multiple words with the same letter): "boundless and bare," "lone and level," "sands stretch."


Tone middle of nowhere – there must have been some kind of temple or pyramid nearby. Not anymore; the area around the statue is "bare" and the desert is "lone," or empty. The traveler calls our attention to the barrenness of the desert through the extensive use of alliteration (beginning multiple words with the same letter): "boundless and bare," "lone and level," "sands stretch.": the speaker tone was irony of situation
