    Porphyria’s lover: Like ‘My Last Duchess’, this poem is an example of a dramatic monologue – a poem in which the impression the speaker unwittingly gives is rather different from the picture they intend to present.

But there are unsettling notes from the very start –the storm is strangely personified in terms of sullenness, ‘spite’...
