Ode to My Suit Summary

By Pablo Neruda

Ode to My Suit Summary

The speaker addresses his suit, praising it for always waiting for him in the mornings. He considers how he puts the suit on after his shower and then is able to go about his daily life. He takes walks, he meets people, and he lives a life full of events and struggles. The speaker finds his poetry in these daily things. He considers how the suit shapes him, and how he shapes the suit. As the speaker does this, he also envisions his death, and knows that his death will mean the death of the suit, too.
