Here is a fine selection of poetry from the great innovator of the dramatic monologue: Robert Browning. Imbued with psychological penetration, lively wit, and colloquial exuberance which were hitherto alien to Victorian poetry, Browning's poetry was remarkable for its time. His expert mimicry of voices from across the breadth of human nature makes for entertaining listening, and the characters that he depicts, such as the notoriously creepy and possessive Duke, are utterly fascinating. The theatrical talents of David Timson bring Browning's verse to life and this popular anthology stands out as an exceptional addition to our growing "The Great Poets" series. The collection includes such favourites as "The Pied Piper of Hamelin", "Home Thoughts from Abroad", "My Last Duchess", "Pippa's Song", and many others.
