The Practical Antiquarian.
McKenzie, Hope Bussey
Intended for college teachers and students of English literature and bibliography, this paper presents a chronology of Victorian poet Robert Browning's life as he wrote the four-volume "murder poem,""The Ring and the Book." The paper begins with Browning's discovery in a Florentine bookstall of "the old yellow book," a collection of pamphlets detailing a famous Roman murder trial from 150 years earlier. The paper then details the personal and professional obstacles Browning encountered until the publication nine years later of the final two volumes of the poem that the "old yellow book" inspired. The paper includes a list of the 18 pamphlets in the "old yellow book," and the publisher's production notes. (HTH)
