Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description


'This book is a fascinating, witty and most intelligent account of one of the greatest Victorian romances of literary history as seen through these letters.' Cape Argus

'a correspondence virtually unique in literature' Irish Times

Throughout, Karlin provides stimulating insights to the self-dividedness of Browning's speakers and, more disturbingly, Browning himself... As a biographer, editor, and critic of Browing, aniel Karlin writes with rare authority, scholarship, and critical acumen. Piping hot with freshness and originality, his analyses of the poetry never fail to illuminate the texts from the inside out. Much of the persuasiveness of Karlin's criticism arises from his integrating it stylishly and sensitively with quotations from Browning's letters, and his book is an excellent example not only of how scholarly editions of letters can be used as tools for criticisms but also of how the best criticism arises, so often, from documentary sources. (MLR 91:1)
