I don't understand this poem. Well, I understad the first part until she starts talking about the blood on her sheets and then I am lost. I have to do a presentation where I just talk about what the poem is about and then I have to ask the class some questions about it. I need help. This is the poem: The Defence of Guenevere by William Morris
