Browning's Hatreds

This chapter discusses the character of Moses as being a figure of hatred in one of the poems by Browning. The poet previously argued that all artists yearn for a private art in which to express their personal feeling; an art that is not also the instrument of their public mission. His reason is, again, hatred; the hatred with which he is received by his public. Moses serves as a figure for Browning's reason as the embittered prophet who guides the Hebrews, a group of thankless people, through the wilderness.

Keywords:   Moses, figure of hatred, poems, Browning, private art, personal feeling, art, hatred
