Canto II Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


Although he never mentions it directly, Pound alludes to the myth of the sea god Poseidon raping a nymph named Tyro. Apart from that, the poem doesn't really have anything to do with sex. It's more interested in people getting killed and turned into fish—gross times, not sexy times.
