Analysis and comments on Nellie Clark by Edgar Lee Masters

Comment 1 of 1, added on February 15th, 2007 at 5:02 PM.

That is a sad poem. Im in drama and I have to remember every word to it.
It's hard to believe that little girls back then could have got raped and
it would be blamed on them and not the boys. And to think that through out
her whole life the story of her rape clung to her and no man wanted her
cause she was no longer a virgin. And when she found a man that did love
her, someone told him what happened to her and he no longer lovced
her......to think how hard it must be to go through life in exile.
