    I absolutely adore Robert Browning. He is the one who first got me interested in poetry. 'Porphyria's Lover' is my favourite poem He's a sensational poet and has a wonderful way with words. He is compelling and very talented!

    Browning is matchless when he underlines the emotions of a lover who wants nothing but love, the love of his beloved who is adorable but some how not coming to terms.

    I always thought Browning was a man's poet. He's certainly a very special, unique one.

    Browning is a much-neglected poet from the Victorian era. His 'The Patriot' is totally brilliant, not to mention his 'My Last Duchess' - a GCSE text for many. Like so many other poets he lives under the shadow of Shakespeare - we read and see his material endlessly unlike that of Browning and others. But Browning knew that and wrote anyway. His unifying influence by way of poetry and pre-Freudian psychology is unmatched.

    Robert Browning is such a beautiful poet- poetry never interested me until I read 'My Last Duchess' and 'Porphyria's Lover'.

Italian In England, The

That second time they hunted me
From hill to plain, from shore to sea,
And Austria, hounding far and wide
Her blood-hounds thro' the country-side,
Breathed hot and instant on my trace,---
I made six days a hiding-place
Of that dry green old aqueduct
Where I and Charles, when boys, have plucked
The fire-flies from the roof above,
