The most important inference to be drawn from this study of Browning’s conclusions is that they are not only extremely interesting but are vital to the success of each poem. These conclusions, as it were, produce the taste that remains with the reader, the aftermath of the dramatic poem. That the poet realized this is reflected in the originality of his endings and his obviously careful attention to them as an important device in the overall plan of the monologue. It is therefore, Browning the artist and craftsman that emerges.
