Analysis

Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

Sorry to disappoint you, Shmoopers, but this is a poem about death and how we're remembered after we die, so there's not a lot of smooching going on. If you want a sexier poem from the eighteenth century, try Alexander Pope
