Browning's Hatreds

This chapter discusses Browning's response to a written passage in Edward Fitzgerald's work, the Rubayat of Omar Khayyam. This passage talks about the relief Fitzgerald felt over the death of Mrs. Browning, which subsequently caused Browning to write a poem aimed at Fitzgerald, where the former expresses his outrage and hatred. Another core subject in this chapter is personal hatred, which is apparent in Browning's poem, which was published in the Athenaeum on July 13. It is stated in this chapter that a poem can be an expression of opinion or of feeling, and nothing more.

Keywords:   Browning, response, Edward Fitzgerald, Rubayat of Omar Khayyam, Mrs. Browning, death, poem, outrage, hatred, personal hatred
