Inhaltsangabe: "The Complete Works of Robert Browning, Volume X" contains critical editions of "Balaustion's Adventure: Including a Transcript from Euripides and Prince Hohenstiel-Schwangau, Saviour of Society." Both published in 1871, these two long poems take up a pair of subjects that held enduring fascination for Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning: classical Greek literature and the career of Napoleon III, Emperor of France. "Balaustion's Adventure," which the poet characterized as merely a "May-month amusement," was surprisingly successful with the reading public that paid more attention to Browning after the triumph of "The Ring and the Book" in 1868-69. His first poem since the publication of that masterpiece, "Balaustion's Adventure" creates a charming and brave narrator who recalls in vivid detail a performance of Euripides' play "Alcestis."
Browning began a poem on Louis Napoleon in 1860, but not until after the fall of the Second Empire in 1870 did he attempt a full-scale portrait of the French emperor. As an exercise in self-justification, "Prince Hohenstiel-Schwangau" falls into a familiar sub-genre of Browning's dramatic monologues. The most intriguing aspect of the poem lies in its biographical importance: the character and career of Napoleon III was a topic of sustained, sharp disagreement between Robert and Elizabeth Browning.
As always in this acclaimed series, a complete record of textual variants is provided, as well as extensive explanatory notes.
