Analysis

The Highwayman Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

There's a ton of violence in this poem, but not much in the way of steaminess. That scene with Bess and her perfumed hair is kind of steamy, but thing don't go very far. We might call this poem more romantic than sexy.
