The first volume of Maisie Ward’s biography has been acclaimed by critics and laymen alike as an astute, revealing, and vastly entertaining account of Browning’s life and poetry up to his wife’s death. This second volume will be equally well-received because it sheds new light on the quality of Browning’s puzzling involvement with the world about him after Elizabeth died.
