ON THIS DAY
On this day in 1889 Robert Browning died at the age of 77. He was an English poet and playwright whose mastery of the dramatic monologue made him one of the foremost Victorian poets. His poems are known for their irony, characterization, dark humour, social commentary, historical settings, and challenging vocabulary.
In 1977 Baroness Clementine Spencer-Churchill died at the age of 92. She was the wife of Sir Winston Churchill and a life peeress in her own right.
