Robert Browning


Robert Browning (May 1812 – 12 December 1889) was an English poet and playwright, whose dramatic monologues made him one of the Victorian poets. His poems are renowned for their satire, characterization, dark humor, social commentary, historical settings, and challenging vocabulary and syntax. His career began, but shrunk for a while. Pauline (1833) and Paracelsus (1835) long poems were acclaimed, but in 1840 Cordello was seen as deliberately obscure. It took a decade for his fame to return, during which time he moved from Shellyn form to a more personal style.

In 1846 Browning married the veteran poet Elizabeth Barrett and he began living in Italy. Through his death in 1861, he published a collection of men and women (1855). His dramatic persona (1864) and book-length epic The Ring and the Book (1868-1869) made him a leading British poet. He continued to write in the long run, but his reputation today largely depends on his medieval times. Through his death in 1889, he was seen as an age-old and philosophical poet who gained Victorian social and political discourse. Associations for the study of his work were formed during his lifetime and survived in Britain and the United States in the twentieth century.
