I really don't understand what is happening in this poem.
I understand the Biblical references, but I don't know how to identify the key narrative techniques within the poem associated with language, form, structure and setting?

I think this is meant to be the hardest of the Rossetti poems for AS, but I found some information on the internet which I've also been using to help annotate the poem.

There may be other websites too if you search on Google. With most poems I seem to find blog articles where people have analysed specific poems in a lot of detail, and looking at a range of websites is always good for alternative interpretations
