Poem introduction

I used to do a thing with children whereby one would tell them the plot of 'Ozymandias', would give them a prose précis of it and make them write out their own poem, which they enjoyed doing and afterwards you would read them Shelley’s poem which came as quite a surprise. Extraordinary poem, I think it’s funny too, I think it’s not often brought out, the humour there is in this poem.
