    Elizabeth Barrett was an outstanding poet in her day. She was considered a superior poet to her husband until after her death when his fame grew. Now she is known for Sonnets from the Portuguese, love poems to her husband. As a young man he was influenced by the romantic poets Byron, Shelly and Keats and collected his first work at age 12. By the time he returned to England after his wife's death his popularity had grown considerably. He was amused by the formation of The Browning Society but eventually became flattered by it. He was in constant demand for parties and literary appearances. He was intending to move to Italy permanently when he died of pneumonia at his son's home in Venice.

    I read so little poetry that I'm not sure what's good and not. I bought this from Ireland because I've always wanted to own "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" and it was wonderful to get to read it in this collection of Robert Browning's poems. He has an interesting style, because all the poems are kind of stories, some quite long. I didn't love all the poems but I found some really great ones.

    One of my favourite poets. Others dislike it, but 'Porphyria's lover' is a great poem. Not because of what happens in the poem, because of all the feminist theory that can be drawn from it, and above all the struggle of love that it represents.

    Pauline: was formally a dramatic monologue but it 'embodied' many of the poet's 'adolescent passions and anxieties'. The poems reveal the impact of Shelly on young browning.

    I have been a longtime fan of Robert Browning, a man whose most important works were not realized until after his death, like Porphyria's Lover, an incredible poem.

    Different edition. But in 150 years this book will be as read, and as readable, as it is today.

    Questo perfetto sconosciuto entrò nella mia vita come un lampo durante le tediose lezioni di inglese al liceo. In My Last Duchess il mistero è dentro poche parole, come in quel as di There she stands/AS if alive, dopo gli ordini del Duca, I gave commands, che non accetta di chinare il capo, mai. Il quadro, che in un gioco di specchi è e non è la Duchessa, sta per la defunta come solo le immagini possono. Ma quadro e donna per il Duca sono identici, si riferisce alla futura moglie con un is my object, ed il cerchio del possesso si chiude. Ed ora, che sconosciuto non è più, Browning torna spesso a farmi compagnia, con i suoi monologhi, drammatici e lucidi, come un grande moderno che della forma fa strumento di liberazione dell'inconscio.
