In this Readers Guide, certain peculiarities of the poet's diction, are presented. The idea of personality as a quickening, regenerating power, and the idea of art as an intermediate agency of personality, are, perhaps, the most reiterated in Browning's poetry. The notes to the poems will be found, I trust, to cover all points and features of the text which require explanation and elucidation.
