About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1911, and reprinted many times thereafter, this book contains 35 poems selected from Browning's works of the years 1835 to 1864, including some of his more famous pieces, such as 'Pippa Passes' and 'My Last Duchess'. Young introduces the volume with an essay on Browning's interaction with the literature and poetry of his era, and the notes at the end of the text explain some of the more difficult allusions in the poems. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Browning or Victorian poetry more generally.
