This study interprets Browning's poetry as a spiritual quest, with the successive stages being: a rejection of Promethean pride for Christ-like humility; affirmation of the gospels of suffering and of work; internalization of the doctrine of the Apocalypse; and ascent to divine love and truth.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Lewis's work is a useful contribution to Browning studies; it focuses on an important but neglected aspect of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's work--her reevaluations of Christianity--and treats that topic systematically and thoroughly. Lewis's analysis of the religious poetry is often excellent, providing readers with new perspectives on its operations and significance." Antony H. Harrison"
