There's a certain Slant of light

There's a certain Slant of light

by Emily Dickinson

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

That slant of light isn't looking too sexy. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a sexy Dickinson poem. She's a bit preoccupied with death and slants of light, thank you very much.
