I read so little poetry that I'm not sure what's good and not. I bought this from Ireland because I've always wanted to own "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" and it was wonderful to get to read it in this collection of Robert Browning's poems. He has an interesting style, because all the poems are kind of stories, some quite long. I didn't love all the poems but I found some really great ones.
Questo perfetto sconosciuto entrò nella mia vita come un lampo durante le tediose lezioni di inglese al liceo. In My Last Duchess il mistero è dentro poche parole, come in quel as di There she stands/AS if alive, dopo gli ordini del Duca, I gave commands, che non accetta di chinare il capo, mai.

One of my favourite poets. Others dislike it, but 'Porphyria's lover' is a great poem. Not because of what happens in the poem, because of all the feminist theory that can be drawn from it, and above all the struggle of love that it represents.

By the time he returned to England after his wife's death his popularity had grown considerably. He was amused by the formation of The Browning Society but ev ...more

I have been a longtime fan of Robert Browning, a man whose most important works were not realized until after his death, like Porphyria's Lover, an incredible poem.

Different edition. But in 150 years this book will be as read, and as readable, as it is today.
