These poems shift emphasis from the private, atemporal, and generally non-social genre of Romantic lyricism to the ironies and enigmas of human awareness and social relationships, to dramatic action in human speech. While the status of this publication was not widely understood at the time, its value is manifest in its reception history, in the discussion and representations that constitute its ongoing existence as a historical event. The two volumes were hardly noticed, barely debated in public and, apart from a few significant admirers William Morris, the Rossettis, George Eliotgenerally dismissed as yet another in a series of obscure works by the enigmatic Mr. It is only by means of their reception history, their public discussion and analysis in the following decades and century, that their cultural and aesthetic value gradually emerged.
He stood and watched the cobbler at his trade, The man who slices lemons into drink, The coffee-roaster's brazierand the boys That volunteer to help him turn its winch. He glanced o'er books on stalls with half an eye, And fly-leaf ballads on the vendor's string, And broad-edge bold-print posters by the wall.
He took such cognizance of men and things, If any beat a horse, you felt he saw; If any cursed a woman, he took note; Yet stared at nobody—you stared at him, And found, less to your pleasure than surprise, He seemed to know you and expect as much. Men and Women In Florence, probably from early inBrowning worked on the poems that eventually comprised his two-volume Men and Womenfor which he is now well known,  although inwhen they were published, they made relatively little impact.
InElizabeth died in Florence. Among those whom he found consoling in that period was the novelist and poet Isa Blagdenwith whom he and his wife had a voluminous correspondence. They made their home in 17 Warwick Crescent, Maida Vale. It was only when he became part of the London literary scene—albeit while paying frequent visits to Italy though never again to Florence —that his reputation started to take off.
Based on a convoluted murder-case from s Rome, the poem is composed of 12 books: Long even by Browning's standards over twenty-thousand linesThe Ring and the Book was his most ambitious project and is arguably his greatest work; it has been called a tour de force of dramatic poetry. After a series of long poems published in the early s, of which Balaustion's Adventure and Red Cotton Night-Cap Country were the best-received,  the volume Pacchiarotto, and How He Worked in Distemper included an attack against Browning's critics, especially Alfred Austinwho was later to become Poet Laureate.
According to some reports Browning became romantically involved with Louisa Caroline Stewart-MackenzieLady Ashburton, but he refused her proposal of marriage, and did not remarry. Inhe revisited Italy for the first time in the seventeen years since Elizabeth's death, and returned there on several further occasions.
It finally presented the poet speaking in his own voice, engaging in a series of dialogues with long-forgotten figures of literary, artistic, and philosophic history. The Victorian public was baffled by this, and Browning returned to the brief, concise lyric for his last volume, Asolandopublished on the day of his death.
He was made LL. But he turned down anything that involved public speaking. At a dinner party on 7 Aprilat the home of Browning's friend the artist Rudolf Lehmannan Edison cylinder phonograph recording was made on a white wax cylinder by Edison 's British representative, George Gouraud.
In the recording, which still exists, Browning recites part of How They Brought the Good News from Ghent to Aix and can be heard apologising when he forgets the words.

His critical reputation rests mainly on his dramatic monologuesin which the words not only convey setting and action but reveal the speaker's character. In a Browning monologue, unlike a soliloquythe meaning is not what the speaker voluntarily reveals but what he inadvertently gives away, usually while rationalising past actions or special pleading his case to a silent auditor.
These monologues have been influential, and today the best of them are often treated by teachers and lecturers as paradigm cases of the monologue form.The Works of Robert Browning. 10 vols.
