The poet meets a traveler from an ancient land.

The traveler tells the poet that he has seen two huge trunk-less legs of stone standing in the desert.

Near those legs lay a shattered and half buried face in the sand.

The face of the statue showed signs of contempt and cold command on it.

It seems that the workmanship of the sculptor who made the statue, was of a very high order.

The sculptor had read those passions of the living man quite well. He stamped those passions exactly on the lifeless stones.

On the pedestal of the statue the following words are written:

“My name is Ozymandias, Kings of Kings: Look upon my works, ye Mighty,and despair!”

Only boundless and bare sand is spreading all around the broken statue and the shattered face of Ozymandias.




Sneer of cold command

 Survive, stamped on these lifeless things

 The lone and level sands stretch far away

 Boundless and bare



 Its rhyme-scheme consists of an octave(a set of eight lines) and a sestet (a set of six lines)

 The rhyme-scheme does not follow any of the recognized pattern, and some of the rhymes are faulty (for instance, stone and frown; appear and despair).



(i) Near them, on the sand Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command

(ii) Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare.

The lone and level sands stretch far away


In the first image, the poet paints the picture of the broken statue, a huge wreck,the face of which still wears a frown and the sneer of cold command.

In the second image, the poet paints the picture of the lone and level desert, boundless and bare, stretching far away.



 It is a figure of speech in which substitution of a part stands for the whole or the whole stands for the part.

E.g. the hand that mocked them.
