What do you like or dislike about this character?
What makes  this character interesting to you?
Select an interaction this character has with another character in the play. What does this interaction reveal about the character?

The poem seems to follow the same structure as a traditional sonnet.  However, there are differences.  Identify those differences and explain how they fit into the theme of the poem.
Both "To His Coy Mistress" and "My Last Duchess" express distinct attitudes toward women. Each possesses a unique speaker whose attitude powerfully shapes what the poem communicates.

Look carefully at the language of the two poems and answer one of the following questions:
  • How does Browning's "My Last Duchess" reveal the Duke of Ferrara's attitude toward women?
  • How might a female reader have trouble identifying with the speaker in both poems?

As a follow up, post a question or comment about one of your classmate's interpretations.
