Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Both ‘Tissue’ by Imtiaz Dharker and ‘Ozymandias’ by Percy Shelley, show the power of time and how nothing can defy it. The writer of 'Tissue' considers the idea that buildings, built to withstand time, are instead made of paper or ‘living tissue’ and even ‘skin’. Similarly, in ‘Ozymandias’, Shelley immediately reminds the reader of the power of time by referring to the ‘antique land’ which creates images of ruinous cities overcome by nature.
