For this project, I choose to do my reflection over the show Dexter’s Laboratory. I choose to watch and review this particular show because it is one that I remember watching frequently as a child.

- “My Last Duchess” and “The Laboratory” are two very diverse yet similar poems written by Robert Browning within the period of three years. In this essay I am going to carefully consider the techniques, language and imagery that Browning uses in these two poems.
