On My First Son

by Ben Jonson

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

"On My First Son" is a very serious poem. It's about the death of a child, so there really isn't any room or place for sexuality of any kind. The poem is rated G. That's even less than PG, folks, or less than a Disney Movie, if you prefer.
