Pablo Neruda – Ben Grade 10 IB

This comparative commentary is written by one of my grade 10 IB students. The essay focuses on Pablo Neruda’s poems, exploring his stance on communism. Three literary devices, namely symbolism, metaphor, and diction, are specifically pointed out as the textual elements that Neruda has applied in his poems to establish his position in favor of communism. Above all, each element has been elaborated on, convincing the readers of Neruda’s standpoint.
