    What is the best poem to compare to Ozymandias in relation to nature from the power and conflict poems? Insm thinking Storm in the Island but need help explaining please.

    Yeah definitely choose Storm on the Island because you can compare the power of the storm to the power of Ozymandias. Both control the fate of people’s lives and both the storm and Ozymandias dominate everything in sight. You can also talk about how the power of the weather and sand has turned the Ozymandias statue into ruins similar to the storm which has destroyed houses etc. Remember to use quotes. At a stretch, you could talk about conflict because Storm on the Island is contextually about a civil war in Ireland (if you notice the title spells Stormont which is the Irish political building) and Ozymandias is about a dictator so you could possibly argue that nature is likened to war. Hope these suggestions help! I actually did this question in my mocks last year (I’m year 12 now) and got a 9 so I hope you can do equally well with what I said
