Book Review.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The many sided nature of Robert Browning is clearly brought out in his last poems which have been grouped and published in a little volume entitled "Asolando" in memory of the charm of his Italian days. While Mr. Browning's death has of course stimulated the public interest in his work, the little group of poems before us will of a certainty live by their own merit. They lack as a whole, perhaps, the mystical character which he imparted to his earlier works, and yet like these they mingle the worlds of fact and fancy. Love, humor, pathos, all find place here and the classic and the modern are mingled. The little volume is a beautiful piece of bookmaking in binding, paper and printing. A fine engraving of Robert Browning serves as frontispiece.

["Asolando, or Facts and Fancies," by Robert Browning. Published by Houghton, Mifflin and Co., The Riverside Press, Cambridge, 1890.]
