September 25, at 8: Using simile enabled him to create a softer image to reference his thoughts. By writing this, Neruda convinces himself on whether or not he would be prepared for the leave of his lover. This delivers a way to keep the reader's attention as the poem comes to a conclusion.
The speaker also includes sensory elements such as smell aromassight lightand touch metals. Neruda provides an understanding that these elements were all things that led him back to his lover.
Not only does this portray him as a person trul y in love, itshows how deeply he thinks of his lover. There are no similes in the poem, but several metaphors. It feels obvious to accept the idea that he always thinks about her wherever he goes, and whatever he does.
He also compares his love to roots and his lover to land in stanza five. To me, this seems like he is forcing her to make a choice or demanding her to not leave him. Although he uses expressive imagery and personification, the end of this stanza really sounds as though he is restricting her.
Suddenly, this makes it seem as though his persona has evolved from being sweet and lovable to strict and insecure. He probably felt very insecure while writing this because due to the circumstances of his situation he is unsure of whether or not he will end up with his lover.
I dislike the poem because I find it very strange. When I started reading the poem, I immediately thought that this poem was going to be about someone the poet truly loves. However, when I reached the third stanza, I felt puzzled.
Why was he suddenly giving up on his love so easily? Why is he making the concept of love seem like an insignificant matter? The reason these questions popped into my head was because the poet expressed his love so deeply in the beginning, then switched to acting like it was something he could give up easily.
If me and another person were in love, and he decided to forget about me and leave, I would not be able to stop loving that person so easily. Neruda even mentions that if at a time his lover decides to forget him, he would have already forgotten about her.
Once again, from loving someone so deeply, how can the author simply disregard the feelings so quickly? I vision the author as an egoistic man who lacks security of his feelings. When I try to think of reasons for why or how he could forget his lover so quickly I come up with the idea that maybe he does not want to be the one discarded because of his pride.

If you forget me has been my favorite Pablo Neruda poem since I was 18 and first encountered it. "If You Forget Me" is a lyric poem, highly musical verse that expresses the emotions of a speaker.
Elegies, odes, and sonnets are examples of important types of lyric poems. In contrast to narrative poetry, which relates events in the form of a story, Pablo Neruda's poem is a melodic and individual expression of the poet's thoughts and feelings.
