Lady Lazarus

Lady Lazarus

  

by Sylvia Plath

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG-13

"Lady Lazarus" isn't a sexy poem, but we're going to go ahead and give it a PG-13 for violence and gore. It's a poem about suicide and being burned alive, which is to say, Plath isn't for kids.
