This chapter discusses that Browning's bizarre and disturbing outburst in ‘One Word More’ takes its place in a complex and fascinating pattern of ideas and associations in his thinking about poetry. In his poetry itself, there is a pattern that makes the dualism between love and hate look very different. In ‘One Word More’, Browning is able to bridge the gap between his own feelings and ideas about hatred, and those expressed by characters in ‘dramatic’ works.

Keywords: Browning; One Word More; poetry; dualism; love; hate; hatred
