Evelyn Hope

Evelyn Hope is a poem written by Robert Browning in his work "Men and Women", 1855.

Professor Saintsbury, who is far from being a Browning enthusiast, writes in his "History of Nineteenth Century Literature", "It is as a lyric poet that Browning ranks highest; and in this highest class it is impossible to refuse him all but the highest rank, in some few cases the very highest. He understood love pretty thoroughly; and when a lyric poet understands love thoroughly there is little doubt of his position." In the list of Browning's best love lyrics, Evelyn Hope (first published in "Men and Women", 1855) takes a very high rank as one of the most musical and tender. The theme is that of a love which, from its conditions, could not be reciprocated, yet would prove undying.[1]
