Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

Though young Lord Randall makes reference to a special lady friend (his "true love," who turns out not to be so true after all), the raciest thing he admits to doing with this femme fatale is eating a dish of eels. Yes, we know that sounds a little fishy, but as far as we can tell, it's meant quite literally here.

People who Shmooped this also Shmooped...
