'Oh, to be in England ...'

Non-fiction ~ article
Published in The Spectator, 10th November 1928
955 words
(First read 30/04/2014)

Benson talks about Browning (1812-89), giving us a glimpse of the poet's visit to the Archbishop's family when Fred was a lad.  The article is mostly about Browning the man, though EFB does have a bit of a dig about Browning the playwright ~ fine one he was to talk.  The article is available online here ~ this was the second of two articles Benson wrote on this subject: for the other see here.
