Throughout most of history women generally have had fewer legal rights and career opportunities than men. Wifehood and motherhood were regarded as women's most significant professions.
Background information[ edit ] Men and Women was Browning's first published work after a five year hiatus, and his first collection of shorter poems since his marriage to Elizabeth Barrett in His reputation had still not recovered from the disastrous failure of Sordello fifteen years previously, and Browning was at the time comprehensively overshadowed by his wife in terms of both critical reception and commercial success.
Away from the spotlight, Browning was able to work on a long-considered project. He had long been associated with the dramatic monologuehaving written two early volumes of poems entitled Dramatic Lyrics and Dramatic Romances and Lyricsbut with Men and Women he took the concept a step further. Browning's Men and Women consists of fifty-one poems, all of which are monologues spoken by different narrators, some identified and some not; the first fifty take in a very diverse range of historical, religious or European situations, with the fifty-first — "One Word More" — featuring Browning himself as narrator and dedicated to his wife.
The title of the collection came from a line in her Sonnets from the Portuguese. Browning himself was very fond of the collection, referring to the poems as "My fifty men and women" from the opening line in One Word Moreand today, Men and Women has been described as one of Victorian England's most significant books.
He separated the simpler rhymed presentations of an emotional moment, such as Mesmerism and A Woman's Last Word, or the picturesque rhymed verse telling a story of an experience, such as Childe Roland and The Statue and the Bust, from their more complex companions, such as Cleon, Fra Lippo, and Rudel.
The resulting collection of only twelve poems is typically found today in many abridged editions of Men and Women, and in the somewhat more accurately titled volume, Transcendentalism: A Poem In Twelve Volumes.Rogers Cup presented by National Bank is a prestigious professional tennis tournament organized by Tennis Canada.
