Analogy in the Present

The message of the sonnet, in contrast to the ephemeral nature of political power, is timeless, transcending centuries and tragically becoming relevant to contemporary political discourses. The inscription on the forgotten crumbling statue represents a "achievement to bind up all these aspects of fragmentation and dislocation and give the poem, an eerily contemporary message about power, history, and civilization" (Walker, 2007, p. 7). Despite resonating with the modern political climate, the poem's moral does not appear to be heard by modern political leaders, who continue to shamelessly commit atrocities in pursuit of their imperialistic ambitions.Recent historical figures such as despotic WWII figures Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, the most recent former US President Donald Trump, and current Russian President Vladimir Putin are just a few examples of modern Ozymandias. individuals attempt to project a persona of omnipotence and invincibility" (Silverman et al., 2012, p. 22) and that "arrogance is engaging in behaviors intended to exaggerate a person's sense of superiority by disparaging others" (Johnson et al., 2010 ),it is no surprise that many leaders act arrogantly.
