  2. 1- he was basically saying that nature was being overlooked and its beauty was simple and pure while the people of today are all about extravagant things and money, etc. materialistic items and didnt care for nature at all anymore and were destroying it.
    2- ozymandias' statue was written on saying grandeur things like king of kings, greatness, and the Mighty one - when in reality he was a sucky leader whose statue is broken (metaphor) and led his ppl to despair and he was exposed as a tyrant.
    3- it was basically all about emotion, nature, supernatural, imagination, and love/death/birth. Think the "simple things" in life.

  3. For 2. The correct answer is:
    "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings. Look on my works ye mighty, and despair."
    What does that say to you. A king who boasts about his empire yet it is long gone now. The only thing that hold up is the statue, not words. Thats why its ironic.
