Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote this poem "Ozymandias" to express to us that possessions do not mean immortality. He used very strong imagery and irony to get his point across throughout the poem. In drawing these vivid and ironic pictures in our minds, Shelley was trying to explain that no one lives forever, and nor do their possessions. Shelley expresses this poem’s moral through a vivid and ironic picture. A shattered stone statue with only the legs and head remaining, standing in the desert, the face is proud and arrogant, "Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read"(lines, 4-6).

Mary Wollstonecraft was conceived on 27 April 1759 in Spitalfields, London. She was the second of the seven offspring of Edward John Wollstonecraft and Elizabeth Dixon. Despite the fact that her family had an agreeable wage when she was a youngster, her dad steadily wasted it on theoretical ventures. Subsequently, the family got to be monetarily shaky and they were as often as possible compelled to move amid Wollstonecraft's childhood. The family's budgetary circumstance in the end got to be dire to the point that Wollstonecraft's dad forced her to turn over cash that she would have acquired at her development. Additionally, he was clearly a fierce man who would beat his wife in tanked furies.

Writers of the Romantic Movement often expressed a spontaneous outpouring of feelings through nature-related symbols and imagery. In “Mutability”, Percy Shelley was no exception to other Romantic writers; he used these impulses of powerful feelings to express the inevitable change that everything in the universe undergoes. Ironically, Shelley claims that the only thing that will remain the same forever is mutability itself. While Shelley claims that everything is changing, he focuses on the mutability of the human species and its individuals. To illustrate humans as mutable, Shelley makes use of poetic elements such as imagery and specified diction. Therefore, “Mutability” ironically shows that the universe, specifically mankind, is
