Analysis

Persephone, Falling Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG13

There's nothing really explicit here, but there are some second meanings to some of the lines. Either way, let's face it: the poem's about Hades having his way with a teenage goddess. Any poem about a story often called "the rape of Persephone" is one you read after the kids have gone to bed.
