Robert Browning


Victorian poet and playwright whose best-known works include My Last Duchess as well as the Pied Piper of Hamelin. His later on works include Women and men and The Band and the Publication. He was fluent in French, Italian, and Greek by enough time he is at his mid-teens. Browning’s poem “Childe Rowland towards the Dark Tower Arrived” influenced horror article writer Stephen King’s book The Dark Tower. He wedded fellow poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning in 1846. He adored the task of Percy Bysshe Shelley and emulated Shelley’s vegetarian way of life for a while.
