    Ok, so what I'm hearing about on the unseen poetry section is that Aunt Jane Fish is a prostitute. Is this true, and if so, how the hell can you interpret this?

    I did not get any of that. I took it at face value and thought she was a fishmonger. Uh oh I really hope I haven't completely messed up another one of my exams. However after I did my mocks in January, we did last years paper, I heard rumours that the poem 'city lilacs' was also about that but I didn't mention it.

    I reckon grade boundaries will be low, because haven't heard of anyone in my year who interpreted as prostitution, so I wouldn't give up all hope of a good grade yet.

    I actually considered this, because of the quote, "Men came from miles and buy from morn till night". I thought it was strange they'd specified men; if men came from miles and stayed with her till the night, well... Also, "phosphorescent flesh" and "dripping female sweat" - both could have raunchier connotations.

    ... But I was too timid to suggest it :-)

    I interpreted that the Fishmonger was killed by the Gay Greg.
