Robert Browning, the great Victorian poet, is often claimed to be hard to understand, largely on account of the obscurity of his language, the complexity of his thought, and his poetic style. The Browning Cyclopaedia, first published in 1891, presents an exposition of the prominent ideas of each poem, as well as its tone, its sources – historical, legendary or fanciful – and a glossary of every difficult word or allusion which might obscure the poem’s meaning. This volume remains indispensable for students of Robert Browning, as well as those interested in the general aesthetic climate of Victorian poetry.
Critical biographies of classical to contemporary writers.
'I am inclined to think that we want new forms . . . as well as thoughts', confessed Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning in 1845. The Oxford Handbook of Victorian Poetry provides a closely-read appreciation of the vibrancy and variety of Victorian poetic forms, and attends to poems as both shaped and shaping forces. The volume is divided into four main sections. The first section on 'Form' looks at a few central innovations and engagements—'Rhythm', 'Beat', 'Address', 'Rhyme', 'Diction', 'Syntax', and 'Story'. The second section, 'Literary Landscapes', examines the traditions and writers (from classical times to the present day) that influence and take their bearings from Victorian poets. The third section provides 'Readings' of twenty-three poets by concentrating on particular poems or collections of poems, offering focused, nuanced engagements with the pleasures and challenges offered by particular styles of thinking and writing. The final section, 'The Place of Poetry', conceives and explores 'place' in a range of ways in order to situate Victorian poetry within broader contexts and discussions: the places in which poems were encountered; the poetic representation and embodiment of various sites and spaces; the location of the 'Victorian' alongside other territories and nationalities; and debates about the place - and displacement - of poetry in Victorian society. This Handbook is designed to be not only an essential resource for those interested in Victorian poetry and poetics, but also a landmark publication—provocative, seminal volume that will offer a lasting contribution to future studies in the area.
Praise for previously published volumes in the Longman Annotated English Poets edition The Poems of Browning collection: "...thorough: a delight for buffs." The Guardian "Woolford and karlin are meticulous readers of Browning... Longman's notes more amply supplement the poet's eventual desire to be of assistance to his readers." The Times Literary Supplement Robert Browning (1812-1889) is considered to be one of the foremost Victorian poets and this is the foremost edition to read him in. This third volume will focus on the poetry written by Browning during his marriage to the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. It will start with The Guardian Angel, the first poem known to have been written by Browning after his marriage, and will end with Browning?s adaptation of an epigram by Walter Savage Landor, An Angel from his Paradise Drove Adam, the last poem which can be certainly dated before his wife?s death.
