A bright and anxious student, Browning learned Latin, Greek, and French at the age of fourteen. From fourteen to sixteen he was educated at home, attended to by numerous tutors in music, drawing, dancing, and horsemanship. At the age of twelve he wrote a volume of Byronic verse entitled Incondita, which his parents tried, unsuccessfully, to have published. In 1833, Browning anonymously published his first major published work, Pauline, and in 1840 he published Sordello, which was commonly viewed as a failure. He also tried writing dramas, but his plays, including Strafford, which ran for five nights in 1837, and the Bells and Pomegranates series, were mostly unsuccessful. Nevertheless, the techniques he developed through his dramatic monologues, particularly his use of diction, rhythm, and symbol, are regarded as his most important contribution to poetry, influencing such highly acclaimed poets of the twentieth century as Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, and Robert Frost.
