Romance Sonambulo

by Federico Garcia Lorca

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

For a poem that's all about frustrated desire, there's very little sexiness going on here. Of course, that's where the frustration part comes in. Still, the speaker's motivations are not overtly physical in nature. Nope, this green gypsy girl of his dreamscape is more of an abstract object of desire.
