Diving into the Wreck

Diving into the Wreck

by Adrienne Rich

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

No sex here. You could pretty much make a Disney cartoon about this, like maybe a sad and creepy version of The Little Mermaid. Sharp eyes will notice that the word "breasts" does show up here. But, those breasts are on a waterlogged corpse, so we're sticking with the G rating.
