Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Browning's dualism, which has often been remarked upon. Browning can be described as a writer obsessed as much as Blake with contraries, and he sees such contraries as essential to human identity and behaviour. Contraries work through historical time and through personal time, and these contraries are further examined through the excerpts of paired poems found in this chapter.

Keywords: Browning; dualism; writer; Blake; contraries; human identity; behaviour; paired poems
