Brownings fame today rests mainly on his dramatic monologues, in which the words not only convey setting and action but also reveal the speakers character. Unlike a soliloquy, the meaning in a Browning dramatic monologue is not what the speaker directly reveals but what he inadvertently gives away about himself in the process of rationalizing past actions, or special-pleading his case to a silent auditor in the poem. Rather than thinking out loud, the character composes a self-defense which the reader, as juror, is challenged to see through. Browning chooses some of the most debased, extreme and even criminally psychotic characters, no doubt for the challenge of building a sympathetic case for a character who doesnt deserve one.

One of his more sensational monologues is Porphyrias Lover (1836)- however, My Last Duchess (1842) is the most frequently cited example of Brownings dramatic monologue form.
