  • A Formalist Approach To "my Last Duchess" By Robert Browning - 801 words
    Robert Brownings My Last Duchess begins appropriately with a literary deception. The title suggests that the poem is about the Duke of Ferraras former wife. However, after second and later readings, it becomes apparent that the subtitle Ferrara truly depicts what the poem is really about, for we learn more about the Duke of Ferrara than we learn about the Duchess. As the Duke talks about the Duchess, he really reveals his own controlling characteristics. This irony is significant, because it sets up the paradoxical nature of the rest of the poem. My Last Duchess is based upon a series of ironic twists and deceptive appearances, which are supported by the poems form and literary devices. The ...

  • Analysis Of "my Last Dutchess" By Robert Browning - 437 words
    I completely agree with Megan's interpretation of the poem, "My Last Dutchess," by Robert Browning. I think that the Duke was very in love with the Dutchess, but was driven mad by her unfaithfulness. I have considered the possibility that he could be speaking with the future Dutchess. He makes the explanation of the last Dutchess a very secret and intimate moment by saying, "since none puts by The curtain I have drawn for you, but I." He could be trying to give the new wife-to-be fair warning. I believe that the last Dutchess was very promiscuous. The Duke states that "she liked what'er She looked on, and her looks went everywhere." The Duke couldn't understand how he could love her so much, ...

  • The Use Of Language By Robert Browning - 1,909 words
    Robert Browning utilized the format of the dramatic monologue, the creation of expectation and surprise, and extensive use of figurative language to support the theme of possessive love in his works "My Last Duchess" and "Porphyria's Lover". The dramatic personae in these works provide surprising accounts of their tormented and often jealous love and the results of their actions determine the startling revelations within each monologue. Their possessive love not only drives them to violent acts, but provides them with seemingly rational excuses for their behavior. Though Browning utilizes the format of the dramatic monologue in both "My Last Duchess" and "Porphyria's Lover", there are a numb ...

  • Porphyrias Lover - 888 words
    Romantic writers often held interesting philosophies of sexuality. On one hand, they were taught to believe that sensual things were sinful, while on the other hand, they were constantly confronted with sexuality in everyday life. Robert Browning is one of the most renowned Romantic poets who often explored the issue of sexuality. In his dramatic poem Porphyrias Lover Browning demonstrates a malicious intertwining of violence, morals, masculinity, and sexuality. His use of setting, gender roles, and transgression illustrate this point. Romanticism is partially characterized by its longing to return to a leisurely, peaceful, private era in which society is not confined in an urban setting. In ...

  • Imagination Real Or Fake - 425 words
    The mind can create its own world rather than the other way about. William Wordsworth, Percy Bysshe Shelly, John Keats, and Robert Browning all display a certain power of imagination, in which the mind is capable of creating its own world. From the imagination of poets, words live on, depicting scenes as if one was involved. William Wordsworth displays a great deal of imagination in his poem I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud. He uses personification to create an image so beautiful and real. A host of golden daffodils.../dancing in the breeze...(4-7) here Wordsworth creates an image that the daffodils are inviting strangers in and entertaining or dancing for them. Wordsworth says I gazed- and gaze ...

  • Compare The Poems Havisham And The Laboratory. - 616 words
    In the poem Havisham, Carol Ann Duffy presents the subject of this poem as an old, embittered woman with ropes on the back of her hands, while Browning presents the subject of his poem as a strong and determined but very jealous and embittered young woman. The poem is written in the first person in the form of a dramatic monologue, The Laboratory by Robert Browning is also written in this form. Carol Ann Duffy writes about the feelings of rejection, isolation and desolation that a woman who has been jilted at the alter by her husband might feel. I think that feelings such as this in both of the poems have been based on either literature or historical events, for example Havisham was most lik ...

  • Victorian England - 1,138 words
    The Victorian era, from the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1837 until her death in 1901, was an era of several unsettling social developments that forced writers more than ever before to take positions on the immediate issues animating the rest of society. Thus, although romantic forms of expression in poetry and prose continued to dominate English literature throughout much of the century, the attention of many writers was directed, sometimes passionately, to such issues as the growth of English democracy, the education of the masses, the progress of industrial enterprise and the consequent rise of a materialistic philosophy, and the plight of the newly industrialized worker. In addition, ...

  • My Last Duchess - 576 words
    A dramatic monologue is a poem in which a single speaker who is not the poet recites the entire poem at a critical moment. The speaker has a listener within the poem, but the reader of the poem is also one of the speakers listeners. In a dramatic monologue, the reader learns about the speaker's character from what the speaker says. Robert Browning is said to have perfected this form of writing. One of his most famous dramatic monologues is "My Last Duchess." The speaker in the poem is an Italian duke who ordered the murder of his wife and is at the offset of the poem showing off the portrait to his future son-in-law. Browning lets the reader know in a roundabout way that the duke only shows ...

  • The Ups And Downs Of Love - 950 words
    The Ups And Downs of Love Love is a constant. Although it comes in many forms and many different ways love cannot be changed and has existed since the dawn of time.

  • Critical Anaylsis Of "porphyrias Lover" - 1,347 words

  • The Storm Within And The Storm With Out Porphyrias Lover - Literary Analysis - 1,026 words
    The finest woks of Browning endeavor to explain the mechanics of human psychology. The motions of love, hate, passion, instinct, violence, desire, poverty, violence, and sex and sensuousness are raised from the dead in his poetry with a striking virility and some are even introduced with a remarkable brilliance. Thanks to the changes wrought by the Industrial Revolution, so many people living in such close quarters, poverty, violence, and sex became part of everyday life. The absence of family and community ties meant newfound personal independence; it also meant the loss of a social safety net. The mid-nineteenth century also saw the rapid growth of newspapers, which functioned not as the c ...

  • Rudyard Kipling And Poetry - 1,783 words
    "Kipling strikes me as personally the most complete man of genius that I have ever known" (Ricketts 270). Such was Henry James' opinion regarding Rudyard Kipling. Surely a man held in such esteem would be capable of becoming an accomplished poet. However, Kipling became a very disputed author. He produced works that caught the eye of many critics, receiving both positive and negative attention particularly in the genre of poetry. Because of the content, style, and time period in which Kipling wrote, he was often misunderstood and unappreciated. The critics based their opinions on common misconceptions and myths. Therefore, the criticisms of Kipling have no basis of truth. Despite negative cr ...
