Someone who clearly isn’t the poet speaks, someone else listens, silently yet reflected in the words. Browning and Tennyson made the dramatic monologue a primary Victorian form, but if subsequently rarer it still thrives, and this course will trace it onwards to T S Eliot, Robert Lowell, Dana Gioia, and beyond.
