Havisham

  

by Carol Ann Duffy

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG-13

While the sex in this poem isn't too explicit, Miss Havisham's erotic fantasies and desires definitely push this into the PG-13 range. A male corpse for a long slow honeymoon? We can all agree that that's too much for the kiddies. Keep the little ones away from this poem!
