Browning's Hatreds

Daniel Karlin

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Browning's account of the Ealing séance, which seems to have precipitated his hatred of Daniel Dunglas Home. This chapter also attempts to determine what facet of the séance brought on this hatred, and whether it is a personal or an intellectual hatred that animated the poem Browning wrote in the winter of 1859–60. This poem was subsequently published in Dramatis Personae after Mrs. Browning died.

Keywords:   Browning, Ealing séance, hatred, Daniel Dunglas Home, personal hatred, intellectual hatred, poem, Dramatis Personae, Mrs. Browning
