Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The dramatic events that Browning recorded in 1842 unfold as if they occurred yesterday in Peen's computer-generated illustrations, which show a historical setting but are unmistakably contemporary. Tugging at both the medieval and modern time periods, these scenes have bold, black, shivering lines and flat expanses of colors in subdued hues, overlaid by different color shapes. The details in this city, from the pillaging rats to the gluttonous council members, bring Browning's lesson home, although the details of the narrative, in the stylized art, are more abstract. Combining the Kate Greenaway edition and this one at a story hour would comprise the perfect launch for discussion of illustrators and their choices, and the stylistic differences between children's book art of the last century and this one. (Picture book. 5-9)

Meet the Author

Robert Browning was born on May 7, 1812, in Camberwell, England.
During the 1830s he met William Macready tried writing verse drama for the stage. Robert found that he was better at single characters with dramatic monologue The reviews of Paracelsus (1835) were mostly encouraging, but the difficulty of his long poem Sordello (1840) turned the critics against him.
In 1845 he saw Elizabeth Barrett's Poems and wanted to meet her. She was an invalid and under the control of her father, married in 1846 and later eloped to Italy, until her death in 1861, she was a much more popular poet during their lifetime, surely helped the critical reception of his Collected Poems (1862) and Dramatis Personae (1863). The Ring and the Book (1868-9),
He and Tennyson was now mentioned together as poets of the age. Although he lived and wrote for another twenty years, the late '60s, he was at the top of his career. His influence continued and finally lead to the Browning Society in 1881. He died in 1889, on the same day that his final volume of verse, Asolando, was published. He is buried in Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey.
