Robert Browning: Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The vitality and accessibility of Browning's poetry have given it lasting appeal. Many of his finest poems are the intensely dramatic monologues, such as "Andrea del Sarto" or "My Last Duchess," in which the poet's imaginative power is at its height.

This splendid collection features selections from Browning's entire career, through the poet's literary successes and critical disappointments. Includes "Paracelsus," "Home--Thoughts from Abroad," Sordello," "Christmas-Eve" and selections from "The Ring and the Book."

Synopsis:

Selections spanning the poet's career, read by leading actors of the British stage and screen: Douglas Hodge, David Horovitch, Derek Jacobi, Jeremy Northam, Diana Quick, Prunella Scales, and Sian Thomas.

About the Author

ROBERT BROWNING was born in 1812 in London and began writing poetry when he was twenty-one. His career suffered for many years and was revived largely by the publication of his great masterpiece "The Ring and the Book." In 1846 he eloped to Italy with Elizabeth Barrett. After her death in 1861, Browning returned to England. Awarded an honorary degree by Oxford University and an honorary fellowship of Balliol College, Oxford, Browning died in 1889.
