It offers a no-holds-barred account of the seedy underbelly of London's nightlife in the late nineteenth century that stands in sharp contrast to the more popular vision that was advanced in many other Victorian-era novels and poems. On another level, the poem is an eloquent description of the despair one can fall into after losing one's faith -- whether in a higher power
