Oda a la Bicicleta

By María Colón

Faculty Mentor: Professor Ana Chichester

My Project is inspired by the work of Chilean writer Pablo Neruda’s Odas. His remarkable work was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Neruda’s Odes are inspired by all things that surrounded him. He found beauty in the simplest things, such as an artichoke, a lemon. His work aims to portray an enthusiastic approach from the lenses of positivism and realism. My inspiration was my bicycle. My child’s memories around it and all the happiness that I had because of it. I hope you enjoy it!
