It is a dramatic monologue , a form of poetry for which he is famous, about the Italian painter Andrea del Sarto. The poem was inspired by Andrea del Sarto , originally named Andrea d'Agnolo, [4] a renaissance artist. In his poem, Browning cedes the paintings are free of errors, but that alone does not make a piece of art special or evocative. Two thirds of Browning's poetic works are written in unrhymed pentameters. Critics of his time commented on his lack of rhyme scheme, known as blank verse.

Browning is also known for his originality, dramatic style and fresh subject matter for the time, which complimented his lack of rhyme scheme. The first line is an example, where the narrator suggests "But do not let us quarrel any more. This literary tactic puts the reader inside the action by allowing them to look both forwards and backwards in the situation. Browning creates an internal world for his reader by giving them insight into how the narrator interprets the whole scene, not just the words spoken: line four, "You turn your face, but does it bring your heart?

It explores aestheticism and human reciprocity, and as a result is written in near perfect iambic pentameter. During his life Browning struggled with religion. At age 13, he announced he was atheist , following in the foot steps of Percy Bysshe Shelley , the poet he looked up to. Browning spent much of his work exploring and questioning religion through his dramatic monologues. Browning based del Sarto's love for his wife, Lucrezia, on his own love for his wife. According to literary scholar Roma A.

King the entire poem is "between asserted artistic and masculine virility and a steadily increasing awareness of debility. Your soft hand is a woman of itself, And mine the man's bared breast she curls inside. However, later undertones hint at a suspecting of lacking and not being enough, as Lucrezia still chooses her lover over her husband, even though he is making her a romantic suit.

He quickly falls into a class of literary males who lack masculinity and passion; the only thing that makes him truly different from Prufrock or any similar characters is that he is aware of his dilemma.

King discusses del Sarto's lack of virility, as he describes his wife the way a painter would, with lines and shapes, as opposed to a husband or person of romantic interest:. But had you—oh, with the same perfect brow, And perfect eyes, and more than perfect mouth, And the low voice my soul hears, as a bird [14].

Instead of images of interest and arousal, he speaks of her as a figure to be painted. This is much the same as in the rest of the work, according to Stefan Hawlin, another literary scholar.

Andrea del Sarto by Robert Browning

This dramatic monologue is narrated by Renaissance painter Andrea del Sarto to his wife Lucrezia. They live in Florence. Andrea begs Lucrezia that they end a quarrel over whether the painter should sell his paintings to a friend of his wife's. He acquiesces to her wish and promises he will give her the money if she will only hold his hand and sit with him by the window from which they can survey Florence. He admits to feeling a deep melancholy, in which "a common grayness silvers everything" line 35 , and hopes she can pull him from it. He tells her that if she were to smile for him, he would be able to pull himself from such sadness. Andrea considers himself a failure as an artist, both because Lucrezia has lost her "first pride" line 37 in him and because he has only one talent: the ability to create faultless paintings.
