Catelyn Cooper Professor Marks English Writing 303 17 September 2016 Poetry Response The poem “Ode to the Onion” by Pablo Neruda is about a man’s love for onions. The title is, “Ode to the Onion” so before even reading the poem I can infer that it is about onions. When I was reading the poem I noticed the author talks about the onions beauty and how it is such a miracle that the earth produces it. I also noticed that the author refers to the earth as a woman. He writes,”…the earth heaped up her power showing her naked transparency…,”. I think he refers to the earth as a woman because if this miracle food was produced in the ground than it must have been produced by something gentle and caring like a women. He might also be referring to Mother Nature. Another thing I noticed about the poem is the author talks about the onions life cycle. In the beginning of the poem he talks about the onion growing in the ground and how the earth is helping it grow. At the end of the poem he talks about the onion being on the tables of the poor and how beautiful it is. While reading this poem I have come to the conclusion that the poem is truly about onions and how much the author likes them. I do not think there is a double meaning or any other meaning in this poem because the author doesn’t move away from onions or not relate something to them in the end.
