    "Remorse is cureless", how true. More interesting than the poem itself I found the short description of the confession of the poor, in group and with the payment of a fee.

    Thanks for the link, tailor. It was very helpful for me too. Seemed to be a Brazilian scene but I got a bit confused with the different locations and perspectives in the poem.

    Nora Pembroke, a beautiful and sad poem!
