.... and painting. He was an extremely bright child and a fierce reader. He learned Latin, Greek, French, and Italian by the time he was fourteen. He attended the University of London in 1928, but left discontent to pursue an education at his own pace. The young Browning had before him the influences of Burns, Wordsworth, Byron, Shelley, and Keats. He began to prepare himself to soon be in their company.
