This chapter discusses the fascination with dark and dreadful landscapes, which has existed for a long time in both literature and art. Based on a previous demonstration by DeVane, Browning's poems undoubtedly draw on visual iconography as well as on literature. Excerpts from Browning's poems are provided and subsequently analyzed.
