Welcome to the Week 4 discussion board! As I mentioned in my lecture this week, I’d like you to complete a close reading of Pablo Neruda’s poem https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/49322/ode-to-a-large-tuna-in-the-market” This poem gives us a good opportunity to explore figurative language. I have a few questions about the poem to get us started this week. As always, I also invite you to raise any questions you may have about the poem.
1. Why do you think there are so many words in the poem that deal with weapons or warfare?
2. An ode is a “praise poem.” What does the poem’s title tell us about the speaker’s attitude toward the tuna?
3. Annotate all of the metaphors and similes in the poem. What do you notice of the balance of similes and metaphors? How does the figurative language in the poem contribute to the poem’s tone?
4. Do you like the poem? Why or why not?
