It was written for an informal poetry competition in 1817. The poetic topic was Egypt inspired by some extraordinary Egyptian fragments recently displayed at the British Museum in London. Ozymandias is the Greek name for Ramses II. The Great Hall at Karnak is the greatest colonnaded hall ever constructed. It was so huge that one hundred men could stand on the capital of each column.
