Summary
In 1845, a 33-year-old aspiring poet named Robert Browning wrote a letter of admiration to Elizabeth Barrett, who was six years his elder and already recognized as one of the best English poets of the 19th century. At the time, Browning was still living with his parents and had managed only mediocre success. When Barrett responded favorably to his letter, it marked the beginning of one of the most famous literary romances of all time. Contained in this anthology are early editions of some of the Brownings' most well-known works of poetry, including Aurora Leigh, Casa Guidi Windows, Bells and Pomegranates, The Ring and the Book and many more, as well as volumes of the nearly 600 letters exchanged between the two poets. Other items of historic interest in this anthology include a book of Robert Browning's poems selected for students taking a college entrance exam at the turn of the 20th century, a book on the influence of Italy in the Brownings' work, a recording of Robert Browning reciting his own poem into an Edison recording device in 1889, period photos and portraits and many interesting works of biography and criticism on both poets, most of them written by the Brownings' contemporaries. All this and more allow users to enjoy the timeless literary romance of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning
