The Second Edition of this substantial collection of Browning's poetry again reprints the texts of the seventeen-volume Fourth and complete edition (Smith, Elder), of which all but the final volume were approved by Browning before his death. The poems are ordered chronologically according to their first appearance in book form. Thirteen new poems are included in this edition, with Pauline now printed in its entirety. Annotations have been revised throughout to clarify Browning's references and vocabulary.

Criticism retains the important contextual perspective of the First Edition. The twenty-three essays, nine of which are new, are divided into three sections: Victorian Views, Modern Essays in Criticism, and Interpretations of Poems.
