Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Shelley's "Ozymandias" on "Mad Men":


Lots of poetry references on MAD MEN, from O'Hara's "Meditations in an Emergency" in Season 2 to last week's episode entitled "Lady Lazarus." (And wasn't Pete reading THE CRYING OF LOT 49 on the train last week as well? Not "poetry" but certainly poetic.) Perhaps a Matthew Weiner interview with Best AmPo?

It's not surprising that Stan Rizzo knew Ozymandias. It was an unremitting part of the public grammar school curriculum in NYC the 1960s. Every school boy or girl knew it.
Don't forget too the entire population was ions more literate.


Yes, they were more literate but I'm certain that their literacy couldn't be measured in ions.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
