about this item

Robert Browning's pre-eminent status amongst Victorian poets has endured, despite the recent broadening of the literary canon. He is the main practitioner of the period's most important poetic genre, the dramatic monologue, while his engagement with many aspects of nineteenth-century culture makes him a key figure in the wider field of Victorian studies.

This stimulating introduction to the critical perspective on Browning's work examines a range of sources, from Victorian reviews through to the latest criticism. It provides an invaluable overview of the major debates surrounding Browning's work over the last two hundred years and places him in the context of Victorian culture and aesthetics.
