Review by

There's no doubt that Browning's sonnets stand out above many of the poems here, but this small edition does hold together as a smooth and varied collection of her works. For a reader who doesn't need or want the added explanations that an editor might provide, and who simply wants a sample of Browning's lovely work, this might well be a worthwhile choice. Certainly, many of Browning's words feel dated and idealistic today, but they stand as a beautiful collection of poems from another time, and one worth revisiting.
