Ma non pochi furono i misteri che avvolsero la vita di Browning.

Tra queste, ve ne sono di memorabili. I cieli cui lui aspira sono chiusi al suo accesso. La sua arte li tocca, ma lui rimane seduto a terra.

Andrea Del Sarto – Poem by Robert Browning

Ho sentito dentro di me tutta la sua malinconia. Ho creduto di leggere un poema e invece mi sono visto nello specchio malinconico di Robert Browning. brownlng

His “Andrea del Sarto” is yet another underappreciated poem by this man way ahead of his time.

In a dramatic monologue where an aging painter sits, half complaining and half admiring his beautiful wife although not as husbands usually do!

Andrea Del Sarto Poem by Robert Browning – Poem Hunter Comments

Browning brings out the futility of beauty which is spiritually empty. Sarto’s art is beautiful but has no soul and similarly his wife is beautiful but has no depth that can touch the heart. In an age where poets foolishly aped Romantics or pined for medieval timesBrowning was a breath of fresh air, too modern to be understood and too radical to be appreciated. He warto kept away his Wordsworth and picked up his Goethe way before there was any question of Goethe.

Andrea del Sarto by Robert Browning

His poetry, regardless of whichever one picks up, deals with realism and depth: His work is gory, depressing, dle disturbing sometimes Porphyria’s Lover, people! In andtea particular poem, the reader finds out why. Reading Browning’s poems, therefore, is like discovering Browning, one piece at a time.


Every time I read him, I find a little bit more about what poetry should be. Not ” A thing of beauty” and “A joy forever” not “emotion recollected in tranquillity.

Dec 03, Eric rated it really liked it. He is unlike the speakers in other Browning poems like “Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister” and “Fra Lippo Lippi” in browniny he is aware of his flaws and ponders them in totality—and while it may seem a far cry from those previous works, the rudiments remain.

At the end of the day, this is still a classical dramatic monologue from Browning in style and form. For, while the poem may offer no explicit answer, the fundamental question remains: Anyone who has devoted any deal dep time to the arts can relate to the titular character of this work as he tries to understand what sets him apart from the greats. In this instance, del Sarto refers to himself as a craftsman, recognizing his boundless talent as an art manufacturer, but belittling it for his lack of raw emotion.

From there, things start to become a little more dobert again.

The artist who wants to create something unique and original but can only recreate what has already been done before is a tale as old as time. In the case of del Sarto, however, it is stretched to its maximum reaches. This is not a man who makes half-baked copies of original masterpieces, he is a man with the gift of absolute perfection in his technical ability to paint. In other robdrt, he is freely able to robbert a living selling his paintings—he has done so before and the poem suggests he will do so again—but, he is ultimately left unfulfilled due to his inability to create unique masterpieces that he has put his heart and soul into.

In a particularly poignant passage, del Sarto focuses on a work by Rafael: When he sees this piece by Rafael, he fixates on a blemish, and how brownin could fix that blemish. In any other Browning work, the speaker would most likely just leave it at that. Del Sarto does probe it further, however, concluding that while he could make the more technically perfected version of the art, the passion and emotion Brownimg put into it is ultimately what makes it so remarkable.

How can art without fault be of less worth than art with fault? From an objective standpoint, it does not make sense. The only real answer is that perfect ability does not make perfect art. Thus, the poem reveals its underlying message: It is undeniable that there is no market for proficiency, however. As mentioned earlier, del Sarto had been able to roberg a living and consistently sell paintings due to his technical ability for much of his life.


In that way, the poem can also be seen as a statement on pop appeal. However, each of these topics deserve their own individual focus, and the notion of the perfect imperfections in high art vs. Matteo Marini rated it it was amazing Aug 19, Brett rated it liked it Jan 05, D rated it liked it Apr 21, Bu Simpson Fling rated it really liked it Mar 07, Mary Faulconer rated it really tobert it Jul 13, Nishachar Ak Prince rated it liked it Oct 16, Dek Verma rated it liked it Apr 25, Jessica rated it liked it Nov 21, Chamudi rated it it was ok Dep 18, Suchi Banerjee rated it really liked it May 20, Em Keeler rated it liked it Jul 05, Angie Taylor rated sadto really liked it Mar 21, Elizabeth Murphy rated it liked it Mar 20, Casey Marie rated it it was amazing Jul 13, Nikola Korbuc rated it really liked it Broowning 01, Josefina rated it really liked it Aug 23, Aquamarine rated it liked it Sep 23, Pieter rated it really liked it Apr 29, Ryan rated it it was ok Jan 21, Bindia rated it it was ok Nov 25, De, rated it liked it Oct 10, Vinay S Mattihalli rated it really liked it Aug 01, Kalpana rated it liked it Jul 14, Krista rated it liked it Sep 04, Oana Stoica marked it as to-read Feb 02, Bintul Muna marked it as to-read Feb 28, Bex marked it as to-read Jul 15, Szani Petrik marked it as to-read Sep 04, Glass Half Full marked it as to-read Sep 17, brownlng Anjali marked it as to-read Sep 18, Eduard marked it as to-read Oct 06, Md Al-Amin marked it as to-read Jan 15, Serena added it Sep 04, Isabelle Tuli added it Oct sxrto, Juli marked it as to-read Mar 24, Gazmend Kryeziu marked it as to-read Sep 24, Robert Browning was a British poet and playwright whose mastery of dramatic verse, especially dramatic monologues, made him one of the foremost Victorian poets.
