For me, Browning is just the best. He can be as light as a souffle (but with a sharp kick), and achingly profound. He can build characters and he can be terrifying - not many psychological thrillers can be so chilling so succinctly as Porphyria's Lover, and he can capture the sweetness of first love. He's also shamefully neglected. ( )

Epigraph
A peep through my window if folk prefer;
But, please you, no foot over threshold of mine.
"HOUSE"
Dedication
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.
