Analysis

Afterwards Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

There's no sex in this poem. After all, it's about dying, and as a rule, it's best not to mix the two. It's not that Hardy had nothing to say about sex (just flip over to Tess of the D'Urbervilles if you don't believe us), but he generally left it out of his poetry.
