An example of Browning's obscurity can be found in “Two in the Campagna" with his use of unbelievable metaphors and similies. 

In the "Grammarian's Funeral", Browning dispenses with grammar and indulges in writing that most readers are too confused to decipher.

In "Sordellow", Browning condenses and limits his words to the point where his intent is difficult to understand.
