Description

In this dark and twisted poem, Robert Browning imagines a man so consumed by love that, with a storm raging in the night, he strangles the woman he desires.

Our lesson plan establishes the meaning of 'dramatic monologue' and 'iambic tetrameter', then looks at how Browning creates mood. It ends with a role play, in which one student plays a detective questioning the speaker of the poem.

'Porphyria's Lover' by Robert Browning is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Love and Relationships' cluster in the latest GCSE English literature specification. Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
