About the Author

Robert Browning was born on May 7, 1812, in Camberwell, England.
During the 1830s he met William Macready tried writing verse drama for the stage. Robert found that he was better at single characters with dramatic monologue The reviews of Paracelsus (1835) were mostly encouraging, but the difficulty of his long poem Sordello (1840) turned the critics against him.
In 1845 he saw Elizabeth Barrett's Poems and wanted to meet her. She was an invalid and under the control of her father, married in 1846 and later eloped to Italy, until her death in 1861, she was a much more popular poet during their lifetime, surely helped the critical reception of his Collected Poems (1862) and Dramatis Personae (1863). The Ring and the Book (1868-9),
He and Tennyson was now mentioned together as poets of the age. Although he lived and wrote for another twenty years, the late '60s, he was at the top of his career. His influence continued and finally lead to the Browning Society in 1881. He died in 1889, on the same day that his final volume of verse, Asolando, was published. He is buried in Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey.

Blake, who usually groans at poetry, loved this poem. Even without illustrations.

I was unaware, until I read this, that it was a poem. Despite being a classic, I had never read it before, though I knew the basic story of course. In any case, I found this poem to be quite enjoyable. If you haven't read it already, I recommend that you do.
