Robert Browning's Religious Context and Belief

Much as he admires Byron's poetry, 'as a Christian'(!) he protests against the assertion of the Soul's nothingness as compared with the Ocean. I never heard him, I think, avow his 'Christianity' distinctly in his own person except on this occasion. It is done in his poetry, (Easter Day &c.) but every part of his poetry may be said to be written dramatically, and as expressing the opinions of some imaginary person or type and representative of a class. At least, I fancy he would like it to be so considered. — Alfred Domett (1873)
