Robert Browning (1812-1899) was a well-known Victorian poet, who was also a playwright.
Amongst his best known works are: Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came, and The Pied Piper of Hamelin (a poem for children):
Into the street the Piper stept,
Smiling first a little smile
As if he knew what magic slept,
In his quiet pipe the while;
He was the husband of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and the couples' romance was the subject of a 1934 film entitled The Barretts of Wimpole Street.
