NINETEENTH CENTURY ENGLISH LITERATURE – ROBERT BROWNING


NINETEENTH CENTURY ENGLISH LITERATURE – ROBERT BROWNING

Robert browning foreshadowed the modern trend of writing things usually not allowed, questioning rigid morality, exploring and challenging conventionality. This is understandable because his age was EXACTLY going through that same transition. He is thus the most topical, yet clings to tradition to give an eternal feel, and sense of where we have come from. He thus unifies past, present and in his daring way the future. At times he is grotesque, even evil, but with that depth only literature can render, and he is faithful, deeply honest in his moral searching for that truth that can have many sides.
