Robert Browning (1812–1889)
 
Browning, Robert. An English poet; born in Camberwell, May 7, 1812; died in Venice, Dec. 12, 1889. His first dramatic poem, ‘Pauline,’ which appeared anonymously in 1833, was followed two years later by ‘Paracelsus’; ‘Strafford’ (1837); ‘Sordello’ (1840); and a series of plays and dramatic lyrics under the title of ‘Bells and Pomegranates’ (1841–46). This collection included: ‘Pippa Passes’; ‘King Victor and King Charles’; ‘Colombe’s Birthday’; ‘The Return of the Druses’; ‘A Blot on the ’Scutcheon’; ‘Luria’; and ‘A Soul’s Tragedy.’ In 1846 he married Elizabeth Barrett, and resided in Florence until her death in 1861, when he returned to London; but much of the latter part of his life was spent in Italy. ‘The ‘Ring and the Book’ was published in 1869. His other works include: ‘Christmas Eve and Easter Day’ (1850); ‘Men and Women’ (1855); ‘Dramatis Personæ’ (1864); ‘Balaustion’s Adventure’ (1871); ‘Fifine at the Fair’ (1872); ‘Red-Cotton Night-cap Country’ (1873); ‘Dramatic Idylls’ (1879–80); ‘Jocoseria’ (1883); ‘Ferishtah’s Fancies’ (1884); and ‘Parleyings with Certain People of Importance in their Day’ (1887).
