Romantic Dissolution vs. Artistic Disillusion in Robert Browning’s Andrea del Sarto
Abstract: The present paper sets out to explore Robert Browning’s dramatic monologue introducing Andrea del Sarto (1486- 1531), a late fifteenth-century Florentine painter who was praised for his technical skills in painting but who lacked a spiritual dimension in his art, compared to the works of his contemporaries, Michelangelo Bunarroti (1475-1564) and Raphael (1483-1520).
Keywords: dramatic monologue, displacement, Neoplatonic, oppressed labour, determinist philosophy
