This Reader’s Guide has provided an overview of the main critical preoccupations in Browning studies up to and beyond his Bicentenary in 2012. Browning’s crucial historical position as an innovator responding to the overpowering Romantic tradition, his dominance in the genre of the dramatic monologue, his discussion of aesthetics, and his engagement with contemporary Victorian debates about issues such as gender, politics and national identity or developments in historiography and biblical scholarship have been highlighted as major areas of critical analysis.
