Robert Browning in Contexts

Item# WP107


Edited by John Woolford

Of all the nineteenth-century poets, Robert Browning may be the most accessible to contemporary literary theory and its multifarious approaches to studying texts. The editor celebrates this diversity by bringing together the best of Browning's postmodern critics. Contributors include Herbert Tucker, Daniel Karlin, John Maynard, Isobel Armstrong, Marjorie Stone, and John Woolford. The result is a volume which defines Browning for the new millennium.

“The collection ... accommodates the individual contributors' various critical and scholarly preoccupations. Some of the essays make valuable contributions to Browning criticism.” — Victorian Studies
