Book DescriptionRobert Browning’s famous verse retelling of the medieval legend of the Pied Piper is renowned for its humour and vivid wordplay. When the selfish townspeople of Hamelin refuse to pay the piper for spiriting away the hordes of rats that had plagued them, he exacts his revenge by luring away their greatest treasure, the children of the town. colour reproductions of Kate Greenaway’s beautiful, delicate watercolour illustrations adorn every page.
Editorial Review(in full The Pied Piper of Hamelin, A Child's Story) Narrative poem of 303 lines by Robert Browning, published in 1842 in Dramatic Lyrics, part of the Bells and Pomegranates series. One of Browning's best-known works, the poem relates the classic legend of the town of Hamelin and its burghers, who engage the mysterious pied piper to lure the town's vermin to their death in the river. When the townspeople refuse to pay the piper for his services, he lures their children away by the same means. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
About the AuthorRobert Browning (1812-1889) was born in Camberwell, London, the son of a clerk in the Bank of England. The strongest influence on his education were the books in his father's extensive library, particularly the writings of Byron and Shelley. His dramatic poem Paracelsus, published in 1835, established his reputation and brought him the friendship of the actor-manager William Macready. When Macready's eldest son Willie was ill in bed, Browning wrote for the boy's entertainment the poem of The Pied Piper, a story he remembered from his own childhood. After its appearance in print in 1842, it became a children's classic, attracting new illustrators in every generation. In 1846 Robert Browning married a fellow poet, Elizabeth Barrett, eloping with her to Italy where they lived until Elizabeth's death in 1861. He them returned to England to live with his only sister Sarianna, but later he went back to Italy, where he died at the Rezzonico Palace in Venice.
