    1. "Be sure I looked up at her eyes Happy and proud; at last I knew Poryphyria worshipped me; surpriseMade my heart swell, and still it grew While I debated what to do.""Poryphyria's Lover" is genius in how the true drama of the situation unfolds and how the narrator is slowly revealed to be absolutely insane. Beginning with a depiction of dark feelings, Poryphyria's entrance into the scene creates the illusion of warmth and safety, leading to a wonderfully gothic twist and gruesome aftermath. This [...]

    2. "Porphyria's Lover" by Robert Browning shows the reader about the duality of nature in humans. This poem was written in a time when "lovers" could not be together if they had different social standings, and thus had to make sacrifices to be together. I enjoyed this poem because unlike many other poems that may be dull and lead you directly down the path it started with, "Porphyria's Lover" gives the reader a great twist at the end of the poem."Porphyria's Lover" starts with a very stormy night w [...]

    3. “Porphyria’s Lover” is a poem by Robert Browning written in 1842. Browning wrote this poem in the first person, which allows us to experience the story through the writer’s eyes. This poem reminds me of a quote by Rumi: “Life is a balance of holding on and letting go”. A stifling desire to hold on to things that are precious can spoil any remaining tender sentiment. Change is difficult to accept, and in times of transition it is difficult to focus on what may lie beyond the horizon. [...]

    4. The poem, “Porphyria’s Lover” written by Robert Browning in 1842 helps me view on what is going on like if I was present in the time. The poem resembles a symbol defining that everyone has to let go sometime in their lives, even if you don’t wish too. Holding and gripping to something that you think is yours, might be gone in an instant. The author states this poem as a single image for readers to agree with, and familiarize with their personal lives. This poem might be short, but it has [...]

    5. In “Porphyria’s Lover” a poem by Robert Browning, we can revel upon the duality of human nature once again. I enjoyed reading this poem, especially because Browning writes it from the point of view of the speaker himself, which allows us into his inner thoughts. The speaker takes us from one extreme –love to another- murder all with his thoughts. Again, portraying the duality of our thoughts and nature as humans. This Poem begins on a stormy, windy, night. As the speaker sits in his lone [...]

    6. So this is a poem my daughter studied this year when her class was looking at gothic poetry, and she recommended I read it.Wow. It's very well written and sets a warm scene to begin with, before it's shattered by the narrator strangling the poor girl with her own hair! Because he wants to keep her forever.So creepy. So vivid. Such strong conviction.

    7. After reading Porphyria's Lover a few time and hearing it read helped me understand it a little better. I don't fancy poetry all that much. The way I understood this poem was that they were having a clandestine affair and this might be their last rendezvous. When the lover is strangling her, she is not putting as sort of struggle.

    8. Ihad to pause and leave a comment on this, because I was rather shocked. What starts out as a standard poem on a love takes a sharp turn and ends gruesomely. It rather reminds me of the book "Tenderness" by Robert Cormier. It has that same causal tone, hiding the inner horror.

    9. I am low key obsessed with this poem. It's genius. The moment Porphyria arrives the rhythm changes, the sudden horrible twist, the absolute madness and characterization of a manchild. Magical. I could go on all day about this poem. Browning is probably my favorite poet.

    10. it is hard to believe the writer was such a loving husband despite writing a lot about characters who hate/murder their wives. p.s: mentally thinks of every movie in which Tim burton makes jhonny depp murder Helena carter

    11. This was interesting. I read it for school and I can't say that I regret reading it, at all.

    12. I was reading so passionately I just got in that moment when he killed her I shucked it was unbelievable act .
