Excerpt

ty wheresoever in life it chooses to turn the light of its gaze. So, also, in "Andrea del Sarto," the easy cleverness of the unaspiring craftsman is not embodied apart from the abject relationship which made his very soul a bond- slave to the gross mandates of "the Cousin's whistle." Yet in all three poems the biographic and historic conditions
contributing toward the individualizing of each artist are so unobtrusively epitomized and vitally blended, that, while scarcely any item of specific study of the art and artists of the Renaissance would be out of place in illustrating the essential truth of the portraiture and assisting in the better appreciation of the poem, there is no detail of the workmanship which does not fall into the background as a mere accessory to the dominant figure through whose relationship to his art his station in the past is made clear.

This sort of dramatic synthesis of a salient, historical epoch is again strikingly disclosed in the following poem of the Renaissance period

****.

in men and women by robert browning was somewhat of a confuse. you got to read the book carefully to fully understand what he meant especially when you are not into poetry. robert poems is odd and it doesn't really interest me at all but it does relate to me in a way, which i thought that was wierd but at the same time glad. i do recommend this poetry book to anyone who just want to relate to some one or to someone who want to enjoy a good poem.
