Siren Song

Siren Song

by Margaret Atwood

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

We know that Sirens are supposed to be sexy, so of course there are some sexual innuendos in "Siren Song." But there's no sex actually happening, since anyone who hears the song is dead. Oh yeah, that includes us, too.

People who Shmooped this also Shmooped...
