CALL FOR PAPERS
ROBERT BROWNING AMONG THE VICTORIANS – AND AFTER
Browning Bicentenary issue of Victorian Poetry
Summer 2012

Robert Browning is a quintessentially Victorian poet, deeply rooted in the period's culture, and conscious of its politics and intellectual and religious debates. At the same time, he is a significant – though not always duly acknowledged – influence on later authors. He has also lent himself well to twentieth-century critical theory, having been claimed by approaches as wide-ranging as Deconstruction, New Historicism and feminism. How do we assess him 200 years after his birth, in an age when a variety of critical theories coexists with a strong interest in broader issues of Victorian culture?
