Up-Hill

Up-Hill

by Christina Rossetti

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(4) Base Camp

It feels wrong not to give a poem called "Up-Hill" the highest possible rating on the Tough-O-Meter, but let's face it folks: this poem is not especially difficult, as far as poems go. Still, the poem was designed to send a message to its readers—an important message about salvation—so it's probably for the best that it's on the more accessible side.
