This paper examines Robert Browning's long monologue poem, "My Last Duchess" and analyzes the character of Duke Alfonso. The paper examines how the Duke's speech reveals a soul devoid of human feeling.

From the Paper:

"In Robert Browning's "My Last Duchess," the duke gives a chilling speech that reveals a soul devoid of love, tenderness or any human feeling at all. His only concerns are related to how he feels, how he appears to others and whether or not he is in control. The title "My Last Duchess" implies that he has had a succession of wives and that this is the most recent."
