To the Memory of My Beloved

To the Memory of My Beloved

  

by Ben Jonson

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

There's a lot going on in this poem to be sure, but sex doesn't really take a leading role. In fact, it doesn't have a role at all. We mean, it is an elegy after all.
