Editorial Reviews

Adam Roberts
A wonderfully deft introduction to the work of this crucial poet. Hawlin crosses and recrosses the expansive body of Browning's poetry with an expert touch and fertile concision. This guide manages to include an astonishing amount of material - biographical, poetic, critical and theoretical- without ever becoming cluttered, and its many sensitive readings of the poetry are full of marvellous insight and intelligence. This is certainly the best introduction to the poetry of Robert Browning available today.
Thomas J. Collins
The major strengths of The Complete Critical Guide To Robert Browning are its clarity, its comprehensiveness, and the judiciousness of its critical and theoretical discourse. Because of these qualities it will be useful to students and scholars alike.
