Comparing "Sonnet 55" to "Ozymandais"

- The poem “Ozymandais”, written by Percy Shelley, shares some similarities with Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 55” touching on the subject of art and eternity.

For instance the positive and negative contrast emitted by the poems. In my opinion, Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 55” is more appealing and idealistic to humankind than Shelly’s “Ozymandais” because Shakespeare demonstrates art’s power to preserve genius, pose as an alternative to eternity and deliver an uplifting message....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]
