It is a story that holds mysterious elements. From the words of several
lines you can feel that you seem to be taken to a far place. While you
still want the story keep on and also want to get some true feelings from
the old structure. It is my opinion that those places have a strange to
me and make me even really want to go to the place where the story mentions.
Why a shattered visage gives people so deeply feelings? Maybe from
the angle of the place or from the imagination of the traveler or the structure
that really set this kind of transmission to the traveler? Anyway, you
may guess that the antique monarch truly owned dignities when he was live
from the expressions that he gave the sculptor.
There are many contrasts in the poem. Each presents dreary atmosphere
about the monarch. How large his sculptor was-vast and trunkless legs.
While they standed in the desert -- nobody besides him. He was alone with
his gone titular. You will never know how large kingdom he possessed. How
many slavers he owned or even how many people he governed?
You may in the high class when you live while what still remain when
you died? We can get the answer from the poem clearly. Even a monarch could
not decline hands of the death gods. He at last still had to leave the
world. What you can see is nothing but a gravestone or a sculptor or even
nothing. Who will not have any complaints though you are a common person?
To a monarch, he owned all almost everything on the earth. When he met
the dead time, can he have less grudge than the common people? It is not
hard to understand why he was filled with despair at the last several lines.
The more you get, the more you want. How to make yourself content and
satisfy about what you have now? Everyone can not escape from death while
you can enjoy yourself when you are live. It is important to make your
dream come true when you have ability. A lot of people are afraid of death
or even want to live forever because they have not finished their dreams
or they have too much desire. You can not take anything away when you die
but you own all sweet memory if you are satisfied with what you did in
your live time.
