7 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The face of Robert Browning gives nothing away -- handsome and polished, it offers no hold to those who would pry into the soul behind. Its metallic mirror gives us back ourselves. But the face of Elizabeth Barret Browning speaks openly of her sufferings -- of ill health, of an iron father, of miscarriages -- yet speaking in the accents of courage and good sense. Any woman of sensitivity and talent can imagine herself as Elizabeth, in the hope that she might get as much as did Elizabeth out of a life which sometimes seemed to offer so little. No man can imagine himself as Robert. And if that is because genius is a mystery, it is even more because Robert Browning is a mystery. - p. 1

"Drawing on previously neglected manuscripts, this new study deconstructs the gender and genre ideologies obscuring the achievement of England's first major woman poet. Marjorie Stone resituates Elizabeth Barrett Browning in her cultural context, demonstrating her prominence in nineteenth-century literary history and Victorian feminist discourse. Close readings reveal the allusive intertextuality of Barrett Browning's works, her revisions of the Romantics, her innovations in a range of genres and her creation of emancipatory strategies for the woman writer."--Jacket

Casa Guidi windows by Elizabeth Barrett Browning( Book )

23 editions published between 1851 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1847, Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-61) moved with her new husband to an apartment in Florence, in the wake of perhaps the most famous literary courtship of the nineteenth century. She soon took to calling their home the Casa Guidi. From there, she observed the events of the early Risorgimento. It was at this time that she produced some of her finest work, including Aurora Leigh and Casa Guidi Windows. An impressionistic and thoroughly atypical landmark in the Romantic canon, the latter was written in two parts, separated by several years. Beginning with the memory of a singing child and a lush description of Florence's beauty, the first part explores the air of optimism that permeates both the city and the narrator. By the second, disillusionment is rife: Florence has become the scene of demonstrations and broken political promises. This reissue of the 1851 first edition includes Barrett Browning's own introduction

9 editions published between 1898 and 2012 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1845, Browning met Elizabeth Barrett, who lived as a semi-invalid and virtual prisoner in her father's house in Wimpole Street. Gradually a significant romance developed between them, leading to their secret marriage and flight in 1846. (The marriage was initially secret because Elizabeth's father disapproved of marriage for any of his children.) From the time of their marriage, the Brownings lived in Italy, first in Pisa, and then, within a year, finding an apartment in Florence which they called Casa Guidi (now a museum to their memory). Their only child, Robert Wiedemann Barrett Browning
