"A splendid one-volume Browning."--Choice

From the Back Cover

Robert Browning wrote some of the most powerful and original poetry of the Victorian period, but he remains a difficult and controversial figure. This study aims to clarify and reassess Browning's poetry, exploring his major ideas, themes and poetic forms and placing his work within the cultural and political milieu in which he worked. The study is organised as a sequence of thematic chapters, which trace the development of Browning's life and work including his attitude to love and marriage and his political and philosophical ideas. The authors refer to the full range of Browning's work, but centre discussion on a core group of poems which can thus be seen from a variety of perspectives. A detailed chronology situates Browning's career within its wider historical and cultural framework. Written by two acknowledged experts on Browning, this study contributes a considerable body of new research to the ongoing critical debate. The authors adopt different but non conflicting approaches and the result is a study which fully explores the complexities of Browning's challenging and rewarding work.|'Studies in the Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Literature' is an exciting new series of lively, original and authoritative critical studies aimed at the student and general reader.|

Studies in Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Literature is an exciting new series of lively, original and authoritative critical studies aimed at the student and general reader. Each book takes as its subject an author, genre or single text. Some titles guide students through the perplexing cross-current of critical debate by offering fresh and forthright reappraisals of their subject. Others offer new and timely studies of less familiar subjects which are of importance and value to the student. The series avoids a uniform critical identity or tight ideological approach, allowing the authors to explore their subject in their own way, taking account of recent changes in critical perspective.

Robert Browning wrote some of the most powerful and original poetry of the Victorian period, but he remains a difficult and controversial figure. This study aims to clarify and reassess Browning's poetry, exploring his major ideas, themes and poetic forms and placing his work within the cultural and political milieu in which he worked.
The study is organised as a sequence of thematic chapters, which trace the development of Browning's poetry. Each focuses on a subject which goes to the heart of Browning's life and work including his attitudes to love and marriage and his political and philosophical ideas. The authors refer to the full range of Browning's work, but centre discussion on a core group of poems which can thus be seen from a variety of perspectives. A detailed chronology situates Browning's career within its wider historical and cultural framework.

The authors adopt different - but not conflicting - approaches and the result is a study which fully explores the complexities of Browning's challenging and rewarding work.
John Woolford is Reader in English at King's College University of London and Daniel Karlin is Professor of English at University College London. Both authors have written prolifically on Browning and are joint editors of The Poems of Browning in the Longman Annotated English Poets Series, published to critical acclaim in 1991.
