Robert Browning Book Description :

Perhaps the best story, however, of all the cycle of Sordello legends is that which is related ofDouglas Jerrold. He was recovering from an illness; and having obtained permission for the firsttime to read a little during the day, he picked up a book from a pile beside the bed and beganSordello. No sooner had he done so than he turned deadly pale, put down the book, and said, "MyGod! I'm an idiot. My health is restored, but my mind's gone. I can't understand two consecutivelines of an English poem." He then summoned his family and silently gave the book into theirhands, asking for their opinion on the poem; and as the shadow of perplexity gradually passed overtheir faces, he heaved a sigh of relief and went to sleep. These stories, whether accurate or no, doundoubtedly represent the very peculiar reception accorded to Sordello, a reception which, as I havesaid, bears no resemblance whatever to anything in the way of eulogy or condemnation that had everbeen accorded to a work of art before. There had been authors whom it was fashionable to boast ofadmiring and authors whom it was fashionable to boast of despising; but with Sordello enters intoliterary history the Browning of popular badinage, the author whom it is fashionable to boast of notunderstanding.Putting aside for the moment the literary qualities which are to be found in the poem, when itbecomes intelligible, there is one question very relevant to the fame and character of Browningwhich is raised by Sordello when it is considered, as most people consider it, as hopelesslyunintelligible. It really throws some light upon the reason of Browning's obscurity. The ordinarytheory of Browning's obscurity is to the effect that it was a piece of intellectual vanity indulged inmore and more insolently as his years and fame increased. There are at least two very decisiveobjections to this popular explanation. In the first place, it must emphatically be said for Browningthat in all the numerous records and impressions of

Stories and Poems Book Description :

'Hear and attend and listen...' Rudyard Kipling is a supreme master of the short story in English and a poet of brilliant gifts. His energy and inventiveness poured themselves into every kind of tale, from the bleakest of fables to the richest of comedies, and he illuminated every aspect of human behaviour, of which he was a fascinated (and sometimes appalled) observer. This generous selection of stories and poems, first published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series, covers the full range of Kipling's career from the youthful volumes that brought him fame as the chronicler of British India, to the bittersweet fruits of age and bereavement in the aftermath of the First World War. It includes stories such as 'The Man who would be King', 'Mrs Bathurst', and 'Mary Postgate', and poems from Barrack-Room Ballads and other collections. In his introduction and notes Daniel Karlin addresses the controversial political engagement of Kipling's art, and the sources of its imaginative power. About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Robert Browning Book Description :

Robert Browning (1812-89) rivals Tennyson as the major Victorian poet with such important works as Dramatic Lyrics, Dramatic Romances and Lyrics, Men and Women, Dramatic Personae and the monumental The Ring and the Book. He is known for his development of the dramatic monologue in which he recreated the world of Renaissance Italy, and provided subtle and complex explorations of character. Here, Daniel Karlin and John Woolford provide a thematic survey of Browning's often difficult work, using key poems as a common point of reference. The themes covered include: styles, genres, the mind, the world, interaction and criticism. This excellent survey will be of value to students of Victorian literature and modernism.

Sonnets from the Portugese Book Description :

These and other sublime verses are contained in this collection of tender, mystical, philosophical poems Sonnets from the Portuguese, published originally in 1850. The poet herself was part of one of the most famous literary love-stories of all time - a saga filled with romance, danger and severe opposition from her family. Born into a prominent and extremely wealthy family in Durham, England, she began writing as a child and her father encouraged her talent by getting a collection of poems published when she was only twelve. Schooled in Latin and Greek, she undertook serious scholarly work as well. An undiagnosed illness rendered her a life-long invalid. Elizabeth Barrett was already a well-known poet when she began corresponding with the brilliant writer and poet Robert Browning. Robert Browning who had read and admired her poems began writing to her and their romance began soon afterwards. The couple eloped to Italy, and as feared by her, she was disinherited by her father and her brothers, who felt Browning was a social climber who married Elizabeth for her wealth. However, the couple spent a blissful but short life together and their social circle included all the prominent writers and poets of the day. This collection takes its title from Browning's pet-name for his beloved - "my little Portugee" since she admired the works of Luiz Vaz de Camoes, a 16th century Portuguese bard. Though she thought the poems too personal to publish, her husband encouraged her to do so. They were experimental in form and content at that time. The poems are sequential and must be read in order to trace the development of love and the evolution of the poet, in an era when women shied away from expressing their deepest feelings...
