Challenge students to think like Pablo Neruda by analyzing a fruit or vegetable (that they have available at home) and crafting a Pablo Neruda style ode about it.

To frame their understanding of odes, students begin with analyzing a stanza of John Keats' classic "Ode on a Grecian Urn," anticipate features of Neruda's odes based on Keats' famous model, and ultimately analyze a fruit or vegetable in a celebratory manner that would make Neruda proud.

Included in this resource:

  • an analysis of a stanza of John Keats' famous ode
  • an answer key for the stanza analysis
  • the detailed assignment sheet

Students consistently rate this lesson as one of their favorites throughout the year!

Note: Students will need copies of one of Neruda's food-based odes. They are easily accessible online.
