A dramatic monologue is a piece of spoken verse that offers great insight into the feelings of the speaker. Not to be confused with a soliloquy in a play (which the character speaking speaks to themselves), dramatic monologues suggest an auditor or auditors. They were favoured by many poets in the Victorian period, in which a character in fiction or in history delivers a speech explaining his or her feelings, actions, or motives. The monologue is usually directed toward a silent audience, with the speaker's words influenced by a critical situation. Examples of a dramatic monologue exist in My Last Duchess by Robert Browning, when a duke speaks to an emissary of his way, Porphyria's Lover also by Robert Browning, The Captain of the 1964 Top of the Form Team by Carol Ann Duffy, Lady Lazarus by Sylvia Plath, and Mother to Son by Langston Hughes.
