This story is said to have come to Tolkien after he had watched his own wife, Edith Bratt, dance. There is also clear proof of this inspiration on the Tolkiens' tombstone – when Edith died in 1971, J.R.R. had ”Luthien” inscribed on her tombstone. When he in his turn died in 1973, he was buried in the same grave, and had ”Beren” inscribed on the stone as well. 3 4:4 The women of Middle-earth A fact that many have stated and gravely critiziced is that there are almost no women in Tolkien's Middle-earth.
ROBERT BROWNING AS A LOVE POET English poet and playwright Robert Browning was a master of dramatic verse. He was widely recognized as a master of dramatic monologue and psychological portraiture. Browning was a prolific writer but is most well known for his long form blank poem The Ring and the Book, the story of a Roman murder trial in 12 books. He also wrote a series of lyrics, including The Pied Piper of Hamelin and Prophyria's Lover. The finest works of Browning endeavor to explain the mechanics of human psychology.
Robert Browning (1812-1889) was an English poet, now widely considered one of the most talented and prolific dramatic monologists as well as one of the foremost poets of the Victorian Era. Born in London to a wealthy clerk at the bank of England, he entered the world at a time that was marked by the end of the revolutionary fervor that characterized the Romantic period. Browning was raised in an entirely different atmosphere- one where the major intellectual figures of the time sought stability in political and religious orthodoxy, after distancing themselves from the violence and injustice of Napoleon Bonaparte’s then-powerful empire. Browning was brought up in a suburban village where the changes associated with urbanization and industrialization were strongly felt.
