Journal All human beings and all human beauty must perish (end), but can’t our works survive us? When we pass on, but what we leave behind is proof of our passage through life. Can humans achieve immortality through their words and works?
Objective Students will be able to identify the situational irony in Ozymandias.
Irony What is situational Irony? When what actually happens is the opposite of what we expect to happen.
Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley The topic is Egypt. Inspired by fragments (ruins) on display at a museum. What poem did we read that also focused on “ruins’? Look at the picture on page 619 of your textbook. With your partner, discuss three things you see in the picture. Write your answers down in your journal.
Vocabulary Trunkless legs- legs without a body. Visage- Face Vast-large, stretching far
Situational Irony Ozymandias expected people to see his great works, but his works have almost disappeared. Now people only see this ruin and despair. Glory’s transience.
Key Points Pride is futile (useless) Even art is destroyed by time. The sculptor making the statue of the ruler, dislikes the ruler (“sneer of cold command”). Think of Saddam Hussein
Ozymandias I met a traveler 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: "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.
