I've been lucky enough to come to Florence twice and this time had the chance to pay homage to Ledbury's favourite son (or daughter I should say) The pictures are of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's grave at Cimitero degli Inglesi and her home in Florence Casa Guidi,where she died in her Husband's arms in 1861. If anyone wants to visit the cemetery is in the middle of a roundabout/intersection and with four lanes of traffic to negotiate but it's well worth a look. Hope you enjoy. Barrett's Mother and Sister are buried in Ledbury while her husband Robert Browning is buried at Poet's Corner Westminster Abbey.

Today is my father's birthday, and I'm sure he's celebrating in heaven. I wonder if Billy Sunday, Robert Browning, and Stan Musial are celebrating with him; I hope so. Da, as we called him, always loved birthdays--his or anybody else's. Da was OCD before the term even existed! Mama, who was brought up Baptist, used to say, with a tone of resignation in her voice, that he was a METHODIST! And he did use precise methods for nearly everything he did. At breakfast, he absolutely had to drink a glass of fruit juice before beginning to eat his cereal. (Sister Jean has that same malady.) When he couldn't even see to do it, he would cut the lawn by laying down thin pieces of wood to mark the areas that had been cut. His closet was something to behold; everything was arranged in a systematic way, and he could go straight to it and locate whatever he wanted. Our favorite thing was what he called the gew-gaw box, a small container on the top shelf that had interesting items he had either given up or found somewhere ...

On May 7th in history: In 351 a Jewish revolt against the Romans broke out in Palestine. In 1429 Joan of Arc broke the Siege of Orleans, a turning point in the Hundred Years War. In 1664 Louis XIV of France inaugurated the Palace of Versailles. In 1711 David Hume, Scottish philosopher, was born. In 1718 New Orleans was founded. In 1763 Pontiac's Rebellion began with an attack on Fort Detroit as various Native American tribes united in an attempt to drive white soldiers and settlers out of the Great Lakes region.

Victorian and Modernist British Literature The Victorian period, which lasted from the mid-1800s to the beginning of the twentieth century, includes the love poems of Elizabeth and Robert Browning, Lord Alfred Tennyson's sweeping saga of Camelot entitled "Idylls of the King," and the Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson's adventure stories and novels, including his famous "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Modernist English literature includes the works of William Butler Yeats, Virginia Woolfe, James Joyce and D. H. Lawrence, who all dealt with sometimes disturbing themes of death and disillusionment and pioneered new literary forms.
Springtime always seemed to be a time of poetry, when favorite poems celebrating spring would pop to mind and cause spring fever (Robert Browning's "Oh, to be in England now that April's there") or break your heart (A. E. Housman's "And since to look at things in bloom/Fifty springs are little room . . . "). Then April was declared National Poetry Month and now my mind tends to zero in exclusively on April poems during the month. There's a whole slew of them, April being April. You can start off with Chaucer's "Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote" or leap ahead to T. S. Eliot's "April is the cruelest month." But what always come first to my mind are two old favorites, Bliss Carman's "April Morning" ("Once more in misted April/The world is growing green./Along the winding river/The plumey willows lean") and Sara Teasdale's "Blue Squills" ("How many million Aprils came/Before I ever knew/How white a cherry bough could be,/A bed of squills, how blue!"). And of course there's Edna St. Vincent Millay. In ...
Historic Author-on-Author Insults Virginia Woolf on James Joyce: [Ulysses is] the work of a queasy undergraduate scratching his pimples. H. G. Wells on George Bernard Shaw: An *** child screaming in a hospital. Ralph Waldo Emerson on Jane Austen: Miss Austen’s novels . . . seem to me vulgar in tone, sterile in artistic invention, imprisoned in the wretched conventions of English society, without genius, wit, or knowledge of the world. William Faulkner on Ernest Hemingway: He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary. Ernest Hemingway on William Faulkner: Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words? W. H. Auden on Robert Browning: I don’t think Robert Browning was very good in bed. His wife probably didn’t care for him very much. He snored and had fantasies about twelve-year-old girls. Mark Twain on Jane Austen: Every time I read ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shin-bone.
Characteristics of Victorian Period Poetry? The Victorian Romantic era ushered in many poets and novelists who wrote idealized accounts of those who struggled through working hard, persevering through tough times, finding love and finally winning out in the end. Good people were always rewarded and the bad guy always got his just punishment. Most poems and novels always had a moral lesson to be learned or appreciated. Additionally, the Victorian poets were interested in legends, myths, and stories from the medieval period. Some well-known Victorian poets of the time are Alfred Lord Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and her husband, Robert Browning, Matthew Arnold, and Gerard Manley Hopkins. Characteristics of Victorian Poetry? The Victorian era was when we saw the best of the Victorian poets, such as Robert Browning and Alfred Tennyson. These two were England's most famous poets of the day. Poetry in the Victorian era had settle down from the upheavals of the Romantic era, and became a bridge between t ...

Download Berlee College Of Music GET DETAIL College Of Music A Critique Of The Critique, By G.K. Chesterton, Relating to The Verse of Robert Browning A transient critique is offered of an write-up by late Victorian/and early Edwardian essayist and novelist G.K.Chesterton, concerning the literary and philosophical import of the poems of Victorian poet Robert Browning. It is followed by an aphorism which seeks to reveal that pedantry (which *sad to say* G.K.Chesterton disparaged in passing) is indeed a laudable excellent, and really should not be referred to in a perjorative way.The essay is some thing of an overview that chastises G.K.Chesterton, who however at periods could be a remarkably insighful writer, could often be very mendacious and use (at occasions) a skewed ethos to what he is critiquing, dependent on occasional tendencies Chesterton experienced to not be as analytical as he could and really should have been.

When I think about Polish language, there are certain writers that cross my mind in terms of feeling comfortable in the language - I'm not talking about proper Polish, with all the grammar rules being strictly followed, but about being a few steps ahead. If anybody can think of any new names in English literature - please let me know. I'm not hoping to learn, I'm hoping to enjoy. :) Reading (this will be random) Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Browning, Joseph Conrad, Dorothy Parker, Jane Bowles, John Ashbery, James Joyce, Douglas Dunn, Doris Lessing, Seamus Heaney, James Robertson, Zadie Smith - is always a different language experience, above experiencing other things.
Carry On Christmas 1969.The first special, Carry On Christmas, was broadcast in 1969. It was filmed shortly after the completion of Carry on Up the Jungle and featured the same main cast from that film. It was scripted by long-term Carry On author Talbot Rothwell. The story was an irreverent take on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, featuring Sid James as Scrooge. The 'Christmas Past' sequence reveals that Scrooge failed to invest in the schemes of Dr. Frank N. Stein, who (assisted by his servant, Count Dracula) sought to create a mate for Barbara Windsor's Monster. The 'Christmas Present' sequence described Robert Browning's difficulties in attempting to elope with Elizabeth Barrett without funds, thanks to Scrooge's unwillingness to lend. The 'Christmas Future' sequence retold the story of Cinderella.
34. December 12, 2013. Olav H. Hauge (1908 – 1994) was a Norwegian poet. He was born in Ulvik and lived his whole life there, working as a gardener in his own orchard. Aside from writing his own poems, he was internationally oriented, and translated poems by Alfred Tennyson, William Butler Yeats, Robert Browning, Stéphane Mallarmé, Arthur Rimbaud, Stephen Crane, Friedrich Hölderlin, Georg Trakl, Paul Celan, Bertolt Brecht and Robert Bly to Norwegian. He was also inspired by classical Chinese poetry, e.g. in his poem "T`ao Ch`ien" in the collection Spør vinden (Ask the wind). ( The fish doesn’t moan if the river rises. But the poor old beaver panics over his houses. Olav H. Hauge, in Leaf-Huts and Snow Houses, translated from the Norwegian by Robin Fulton, p. 78
has anyone ever collected all the truly great poems about horses into one anthology? Just thinking. There's a lot of crap "my little pony" stuff *everywhere* but most poets only write one or two poems about horses so the subject matter is very widely dispersed.

Thanks to my uncle Robert Browning for sending me this from C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity: "There is one vice of which no man in the world is free, which everyone in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else...The vice I am talking of is Pride...Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind...As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you." Truth.
okay hum I got Lord Tennyson and Robert Browning, whose works I've read, but also include Thomas Carlyle and Oscar Wilde.
The Pied Piper of Hamelin by Robert Browning, 1888 I loved this since I was little. And he looks like Tom.
The birthday of Geoffrey Chaucer the first great English poet and author of The Canterbury Tales, is unknown, and so we instead remember him on the anniversary of his death, this day in the year 1400. He was buried in the south transept of Westminster Abbey in London, where he was a tenant and a member of the parish. Chaucer's fame increased after his death. He was called the "father of English poetry," and many other British poets began to be buried in the south transept of the abbey, which is now known as Poets' Corner. Lord Tennyson, Robert Browning, Charles Dickens, Samuel Johnson, and Rudyard Kipling are all buried here; and William Wordsworth, John Keats, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare all have memorials.
Westminster Abbey was next. so many famous people are buried there!

Indulge me in a tiny vent, will you. On reading: With age comes wisdom--or loss of brain cells? I've been told that CLOUD ATLAS by David Mitchell is an intellectual tour-de-force by one of the world's greatest modern writers. Tens of thousands of reviewers on Goodreads have given it 5 stars... and I would rather do laundry and sweep the kitchen than pick it up again. I'm on page 30, and it feels as if it's taken me 30 years to get there. Have I become a total ignoramus, with the attention span of a gnat? It's not as if I've never read anything more arduous than Dan Brown--I was an English major, for goodness' sake. I've read Paradise Lost, Robert Browning's The Ring and the Book, and Ulysses. It must be a change in brain chemistry, now that I'm 50. So farewell, CLOUD ATLAS. You are not for me. Instead, I am cracking open A Song of Fire and Ice, Book 4. Not the best of the Game of Thrones books, I hear--but surely it won't take me three decades to get to page 30. Rant over.

Report Poem The Boy And the Angel Morning, evening, noon and night, ``Praise God!; sang Theocrite. Then to his poor trade he turned, Whereby the daily meal was earned.

Then all is still, earth is wintry cold But Spring wind, like a dancing Psalterest, passes Over its breast to awaken it Above birds fly in merry flocks, the lark Soars up and up, shivering for very joy Afar the ocean sleeps - Robert Browning
Died this Day, 14th June, 1936 G. K. Chesterton Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He was educated at St. Paul's School and Slade Art School. Chesterton began writing articles for newspapers and journals such as The Daily News, The Speaker, The Bookman and the Illustrated London News. Chesterton's first two books were collections of poetry, this was followed by biographies of Robert Browning, Charles Dickens (which helped start a revival of Dickens work) and R. L. Stevenson and the popular novel, The Innocence of Father Brown (1911) which began a series of books about the famous clerical detective (not to be confused with the abominable TV series of recent days). Less known is his novel, The Man Who Was Thursday. It is an adventure story, about a man who finds himself involved with, and accepted as a member of, a gang of anarchists, and reportedly inspired Michael Collins, the Irish Republican. In 1922 Chesterton became a Roman Catholic. This influenced the subject matter of his work and ...
COMPLIMENTS OF POEMHUNTER.COM Biography of Walter de la Mare Sir Walter de la Mare was born in Charlton, Kent, in the south of England, of well-to-do parents. His father, James Edward Delamaere, was an official of the Bank of England. His mother, Lucy Sophia (Browning) Delamare, was related to the poet Robert Browning. He was educated in London at St. Paul's Cathedral Choir School, which he left at age 16. From 1890 to 1908 he worked in London in the accounting department of the Anglo-American Oil Company. His career as a writer started from about 1895 and he continued to publish to the end of his life. His first published story, 'Kismet' (1895), appeared in the Sketch under the pseudonym Walter Ramal. In 1908 de la Mare was awarded a yearly government pension of £100, and he devoted himself entirely to writing. He retired to Taplow in Buckinghamshire, where he lived with his wife, Constance Elfrida Ingpen, and four children. His son Richard became chairman of Faber & Faber, and published several of his ...
Victorian poetry The leading poets during the Victorian period were Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892), Robert Browning (1812–89), Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–61), and Matthew Arnold (1822–88). The poetry of this period was heavily influenced by the Romantics, but also went off in its own directions.Particularly notable was the development of the dramatic monologue, a form used by many poets in this period, but perfected by Browning. Literary criticism in the 20th century gradually drew attention to the links between Victorian poetry and modernism. Tennyson was Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom during much of Queen Victoria's reign. He was described by T. S. Eliot, as "the greatest master of metrics as well as melancholia", and as having "the finest ear of any English poet since Milton". Browning main achievement was in dramatic monologues such as "My Last Duchess", "Andrea del Sarto" and "The Bishop Orders his Tomb", which were published in his two-volume Men and Women in 1855. In his intro ...
According to family lore, my potty training was accomplished by stacking a pile of books in the bathroom, so in the beginning I cut my teeth on Dr. Seuss. But then I soon moved on to the Nancy Drew series that were ghost written by several different authors under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene. From there my love of mysteries grew and I moved up to Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Martha Grimes. In school, my love for literature was ignited with the likes of Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Shakespeare, the Bronte sisters, Jane Austen, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Browning, William Wordsworth, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alexandre Dumas, Lord Alfred Tennyson, and Edgar Allan Poe. Yet that is only a condensed list. At the same time as I was learning great literature I was also discovering the excitement of science fiction. While Jules Verne and H.G. Wells are legends in their own right, for me, the two greatest names of that genre shall and always be, Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert. The Foundat ...
Wow, seems i have been so busy, for so long and finally i'm taking off Friday and going to Woodstock for the weekend: one of my very most favorite places on this Earth.!.just want to chill and play my guitar (and talk to some old hippies).i have a couple of new songs i have been working on, so hopefully i might get to finish them. Several years ago, i was there in the Fall and was inspired to write a song, after a walk through the town graveyard.haven't played it in a long time, but i have been thinking of the lyrics. I once saw a singer-songwriter announce that he was about to play a "dark, Gothic piece".i kinda wished i had one of those and i guess this is as close as i ever came. Musically it's in A minor.which i think is the second saddest of all the keys, no?.the amazing Mr Nigel Tufnell has established that D minor is in fact the saddest of all keys, but i guess it is debatable which comes next.A minor, or maybe E minor?.anyhow. The final couplet i stole from the Victorian poet, Robert Browning.i g ...
Let's start the week with some Robert Browning: Porphyria's Lover THE rain set early in to-night, The sullen wind was soon awake, It tore the elm-tops down for spite, And did its worst to vex the lake: I listen'd with heart fit to break. When glided in Porphyria; straight She shut the cold out and the storm, And kneel'd and made the cheerless grate Blaze up, and all the cottage warm; Which done, she rose, and from her form Withdrew the dripping cloak and shawl, And laid her soil'd gloves by, untied Her hat and let the damp hair fall, And, last, she sat down by my side And call'd me. When no voice replied, She put my arm about her waist, And made her smooth white shoulder bare, And all her yellow hair displaced, And, stooping, made my cheek lie there, And spread, o'er all, her yellow hair, Murmuring how she loved me—she Too weak, for all her heart's endeavour, To set its struggling passion free From pride, and vainer ties dissever, And give herself to me for ever. But passion sometimes would prevail, Nor ...
Childe Roland To The Dark Tower Came by Robert Browning (1812-1889) I. My first thought was, he lied in every word, That hoary cripple, with malicious eye Askance to watch the working of his lie On mine, and mouth scarce able to afford Suppression of the glee, that pursed and scored Its edge, at one more victim gained thereby. II. What else should he be set for, with his staff? What, save to waylay with his lies, ensnare All travellers who might find him posted there, And ask the road? I guessed what skull-like laugh Would break, what crutch 'gin write my epitaph For pastime in the dusty thoroughfare, III. If at his counsel I should turn aside Into that ominous tract which, all agree, Hides the Dark Tower. Yet acquiescingly I did turn as he pointed: neither pride Nor hope rekindling at the end descried, So much as gladness that some end might be. IV. For, what with my whole world-wide wandering, What with my search drawn out thro' years, my hope Dwindled into a ghost not fit to cope With that obstreper .. ...

Guys, it's called a WORK OF FICTION for a reason--because it's FICTION, meaning it is NOT fact. So malamang no one's going to believe that the Gates of *** are in Manila. Just like how people don't try to run into the wall between Platforms 9 and 10 at King's Cross Station, or how people don't go into closets looking for Narnia.
In 1925, the Covington Board of Education decided to build a new Lincoln-Grant School. Lincoln-Grant's principal, Robert Yancey, attended a special board meeting to complain that only $100,000 would be spent on his new school while $425,000 was earmarked for a white school. The board didn't change the funding, and Yancey resigned in 1926. He was replaced by a teacher, Henry R. Merry. In May 1929, during site selection for the new African-American school, the Julius Rosenwald Foundation of Chicago, financer for several African-American schools in rural Kentucky, became involved. The preferred building site, on Greenup Street between Ninth and Saratoga streets, had seemed too expensive. However, the foundation said it would help finance the purchase and also buy machine and wood equipment for the school. The new Lincoln-Grant school, financed in part by the foundation and costing $250,000, was dedicated on March 31, 1932. Throughout the history of Lincoln-Grant School, the school's Parent Teacher Associatio ...
Dan Brown calls Manila 'gates of *** ; MMDA cries foul. A top-selling novelist's new work which alludes to Manila as the "gates of *** may be fiction, but a Cabinet official is still taking offense. Metro Manila Development Authority Chairman Francis Tolentino on Thursday cried foul over American novelist Dan Brown's "terrible description" of the Philippine capital. "While we are aware that yours is a work of fiction, we are greatly disappointed by your inaccurate portrayal of our beloved metropolis," Tolentino said in a letter to Brown. "We are displeased [with] how you have used Manila as a venue and source of a character's breakdown and trauma, much more her disillusionment in humanity," he added. In his new book "Inferno," Brown, the author of the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, tells the story of a woman who joined a humanitarian mission to Manila. Arriving in Manila, the character named Sienna, a 32-year-old English doctor, was shocked by the scenes of poverty she saw in the area. She was a ...

Abney Park, could you pass along my request for Capt. Robert Brown to accept my friend request. There are so many of his posts that I want to comment on, but am denied access. I'll send requests for the other band members as I can. I'm a busy man, but would definitely take time as I can. I'm quite literally, your biggest fan, and I challenge anyone to defy that. Lol. Nothing would thrill me more for this to happen, unless it was to be offered a job that would allow me to follow behind in your shadow.Lol. I'm pretty fair at customizations.
