William Shakespeare’s dad was a glove maker who held a number of public government offices in Stratford. William Shakespeare attended grammar school where he learned the beauty of literature. Shakespeare was maybe caught in a lover’s where he left the woman he impregnated for his true lover Anne Whateley. He then started writing poems in the years 1592 and 1593 because of the plague that shut down theaters. Some poems were Venus and Adonis as well as The Rape of Lucrece.
The traveler says that he visited a land where he saw a statute of a king with just legs and the head next to it half sunk into the sand. On the pedestal there were words of how he was the mighty one and everyone else should admire his creation around. However there was nothing to be found around the statue, only miles and miles of sand. From this poem we get to know that nothing is going to last forever. The king may have been the most powerful in his time but one can say that how the mighty has fallen.
While the sculptor has captured the ruler’s power and personality in the “sneer of cold command” (5) on Ozymandias’s face, this face is ultimately broken, symbolizing that his power is lost and he is no longer remembered, nor worshipped as he hoped to be after death. Moreover, not only is the statue shattered, the “colossal wreck” (13) is surrounded by nothing but “boundless and bare” (14) sands. This imagery shows that Ozymandias did not conquer anything after his death; his legacy does not live on. Rather, the speaker implies that his power, his kingdom and the tributes to his life cease to exist, and become meaningless. The imagery of the destroyed statue and the barren surroundings clearly indicate that Ozymandias is not living on after his physical death; death has indeed emerged
The traveler describes the statue as broken apart but can make out the face of the statue. The first image from the traveler is that there are “column-like legs but no torso,” meaning no upper body, just lower body (Mikics). This shows the condition of the statue and by this description it looks as if Ozymandias is defeated. The broken statue basically shows that Ozymandias is a person not worth remembering because if he were, the statue would have been taken care of and still in one piece. The two legs are not that is all left, on the ground half buried in the sand is the head of the statue.
But they weren’t standing tall and handsome, they sat in a small shack, overseeing tourists who enter. We had to undergo procedures, yes. Like submitting an identity proof. But I hadn’t anticipated it to be so simple to walk into another country. But again, my dream of crossing an international border came true (again) that day, so I’m not complaining.
