Rather disgracefully, I had never read Ozymandias, so thank you for introducing me to a wonderful poem. As you say, it captures the transience of all civilisations perfectly. I´m currently reading a history of Andalusia, and studying in Granada, the last city in which the Moors held sway in Spain. The succession of peoples who have been through this part of the world, from the Phoenicians, via the Romans, Visigoths, Moors, Catholics and today´s modern European state, have all left monuments to their power, and their stamp on the culture and landscape of Andalusia, but ultimately each is now a tourist attraction more of interest to the outsider than as a subject of veneration for the locals. As is the same everywhere. Wonderful and humbling at the same time, that poem. Ee bah gum.
