Well... That was Unexpected

Robert Browning's poem "Porphyria's Lover"

"In one long yellow string I wound
Three times her little throat around
And strangled her. No pain felt she;" (lines 39-41)

Was anyone else totally got by surprise when this happened? I was. This is the turning point in the poem (which Roberts may have already said in Ch. 13) for me anyway. Because strangling your lover is the most logical thing to do in that situation (sarcasm).

I was totally surprised by this. To tell you the truth I read it again just to see if he had actually done it. I mean it seemed like he adored her. I'm kind of afraid of my own boyfriend now haha.
