  •  Haven't read the poem since (4+ / 0-)

    JH. I remember my teacher discussing the arrogance of the speaker and he mentioned that the Duchess was dead...I forget whether he mentioned that she was 14 when he married her and 17 when she died...a Borgia and probably poisoned!!!!

    Thanks for reintroducing the poem to me.
