    Biographer Julia Markus states the poet "believed that she had African blood through her grandfather Charles Moulton", but [5] there is no evidence of this — although other branches of her family had African blood through relationships between plantation owners and slaves. Browning knew that he was asking to be allowed to take charge of an invalid's life—believed indeed that she was even worse than was really the case, and that she was hopelessly incapacitated from ever standing on her feet—-but was sure enough of his love to regard that as no obstacle. The ring was mistakenly thought to be the one described in the poem. And to watch you sink by the fire-side now Back again, as you mutely sit Musing by fire-light, that great brow And the spirit-small hand propping it, Yonder, my heart knows how!

    Then her favourite brother Edward "Bro" was drowned in a sailing accident in Torquay in July. On our other side is the straight-up rock; And a path is kept 'twixt the gorge and it By boulder-stones where lichens mock The marks on a moth, and small ferns fit Their teeth to the polished block. Yours ever faithfully Robert Browning. Although not especially successful, he wrote eight verse plays during the next nine years, two of which were produced—Strafford in and A Blot in the 'Scutcheon in Books 8 and 9 consist of depositions by the two opposing trial lawyers, and are filled with legal bickering and discussion of minute pieces of evidence that may or may not be related to the case as a whole; these could be interpreted as representing Browning's somewhat humorous attacks on the convoluted English and European legal system, and might therefore suggest a critique of modes of discourse that replace major elements with minor ones.

    Another collected edition of his poems was called for inbut Pauline was not included. He used poetry as a medium for writing in prose. Included were "My Last Duchess" and "Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister," both dramatic monologues; this form proved to be the ideal medium for Browning's poetic genius. When, if I think but deep enough, You are wont to answer, prompt as rhyme; And you, too, find without rebuff Response your soul seeks many a time Piercing its fine flesh-stuff.

Book 4 is spoken by a lawyer, Tertium Quid, who has no connection to the case but gives what he claims is a balanced, unbiased view of proceedings. In a Browning monologue, unlike a soliloquythe meaning is not what the speaker voluntarily reveals but what he inadvertently gives away, usually while rationalising past actions or special pleading his case to a silent auditor.

Robert's Men and Women is also a product of that time. It was while they were living there in Italy that they both wrote some of their most memorable poems.
