Born in Camberwell, Robert Browning (1812-1889) was an accomplished English poet and playwright, though he lived in the shadow of his famous wife, the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, for many years. He later achieved notice for his mastery of the dramatic monologue, as displayed in his sinister poem “My Last Duchess.”
