Inspired to write “Waring” after Alfred Domett immigrated to the fledgling colony of New Zealand in 1841, Robert Browning urges “contrive, contrive / to rouse us, Waring!” (“W” ‘199-201’), picturing his friend alternatively in Moscow, Spain, or secretly still in London creating some great work “without a wink / of sleep” (“W” ‘146-7’).
