Ozymandias - A poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley.About the poem - This is a sonnet by Percy Bysshe Shelley, published in 1818 in the 11 January issue of The Examiner in London. It is frequently anthologised and is probably Shelley's most famous short poem. It was written in competition with his friend Horace Smith, who wrote another sonnet entitled "Ozymandias". In addition to the power of its themes and imagery, the poem is notable for its virtuosic diction. The rhyme scheme of the sonnet is unusual and creates a sinuous and interwoven effect. About the poet - Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 – 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets. He was born in Sussex, England. Like many poets of his day, mythological themes and figures from Greek poetry are prominent in his works.
