A peep through my window if folk prefer;
But, please you, no foot over threshold of mine.
Dedicated to Alfred Tennyson; in poetry - illustrious and consummate, in friendship - noble and sincere.
First words
Biographical introduction
When some depreciator of the familiar declared the "Only in Italy is there any romance left," Browinng replied, "Ah! well, I should like to include poor old Camberwell," and "poor old Camberwell," where Robert Browning was born, May 7, 1812, offered no meagre nurture for the fancy of a child gifted with the ardor that greatens and glorifies the real.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140437266, Paperback)

Robert Browning, a towering poetic presence of the Victorian era, was hailed by Henry James as a tremendous and incomparable modern. The sheer immediacy and colloquial energy of his poetry ensure enduring appeal. Browning paints landscapes both suburban and sublime, combines lyric and demotic language, and introduces everyday events of the streets and marketplace into the rarified world of Victorian poetry.

This edition includes examples from the early Dramatic Lyrics (1842) and Dramatic Romances and Lyrics (1845); from the masterpieces Men and Women (1855) and Dramatis Personae (1864), and from the less familiar works of his later years. Together they convey the intensity, the lyric beauty, and the vitality of Browning's poetry.
