This volume contains six of the eight Bells and Pomegranates, modestly-priced pamphlets published by Edward Moxon in a bid to help Browning recover from the ridicule which greeted the first appearance of Sordello. It includes Pippa Passes, four other dramatic works, and Dramatic Lyrics, the first of the great collections of short poems with which Browning established his reputation. In addition, a version of a poem on the Pied Piper by Browning's father is here printed for the first time. All significant textual variants are recorded, and each of the Bells is accompanied by an introduction and by full annotation. New information throws further light on this most important period in Browning's poetic career.

Industry Reviews

'In the old editions one saw Browning's poetry, as it were, through the wrong end of a telescope: now it suddenly comes into focus under a high-powered magnifying-glass...Ian Jack and Rowena Fowler are making a collection as sumptuous as Aladdin's cave, wonderfully easy to read, and with introductions as absorbing as the poems and plays have now become.' John Bayley, London Review of Books 'The third volume of the Oxford Browning,well arranged and handsomely produced, continues the excellent standards set in the previous two volumes. One of the best features of this volume is the quality of the annotation.' Stefan Hawlin, St Catherine's College, Oxford. Review of English Studies
