Ozymandias (1)

Chapter: English Literature During The Romantic Period

Shelley's most well-known work is a short poem, Ozymandias. I like to rag on Percy as being the "lesser Shelley," but this poem is pretty damn good, and it's deservedly famous. As such, I somehow managed to milk three strips out of it, albeit three strips that are really, really silly.

As one of the most famous works of literature in history, Ozymandias has frequently been subject to parody and homage. Particularly recently, it directly inspired the Giant Foot on "Lost," a television show that (apparently) only I still love (hense today's comic).
