Theme for English B

by Langston Hughes

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

This poem doesn't really talk about sex. It talks about being in love, but even then none of the mushy stuff gets mentioned. It might take a mature mind to really grasp this poem, but there's no explicit sexuality, or even a sexual undercurrent.
