Hawlin and Burnett present the final volume in this three volume Oxford edition of Browning's great murder-story, The Ring and the Book. The commentary in this edition contains a wealth of new contextual material that illuminates Browning's work in sometimes surprising ways. The copy text of 1888-9, the final edition of Browning's lifetime, has been scrupulously examined, both in relation to compositors' errors, and Browning's own final corrections to the text.
