References in classic literature ?
In considering the poetry of Robert Browning the inevitable first general point is the nearly complete contrast with Tennyson.
Browning is the most thoroughly vigorous and dramatic of all great poets who employ other forms than the actual drama.
Despite his power over external details it is in the human characters, as the really significant and permanent elements of life, that Browning is chiefly interested; indeed he once declared directly that the only thing that seemed to him worth while was the study of souls.
