Sobre l'autor

Elizabeth Barrett was born in Coxhoe Hall, Durham, England, in 1806. Most of her childhood was spent on her father's estate, reading the classics and writing poetry. An injury to her spine when she was fifteen, the shock of her brother's death by drowning in 1840 and an ogre-like father made her mostra'n més life dark. But she read and wrote, and no little volume of verse ever produced a richer return than her Poems of 1844. Robert Browning read the poems, liked them, and came to her rescue like Prince Charming in the fairy story. Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning were married on September 12, 1846. Barrett Browning's enduring fame has rested on two works-Poems (1850), containing Sonnets from the Portuguese, and Aurora Leigh (1857). The former is a celebration of woman as man's other half and the latter is a celebration of woman's potential to stand on her own. During the Edwardian and later periods, it was Sonnets from the Portuguese that embodied Barrett Browning. Since the rise of feminism, it has been Aurora Leigh. More recently, a third side of Barrett Browning has been revealed: the incisive critical and political commentator, seen in her letters. Elizabeth Barrett Browning died in Florence, Italy, in 1861.

Biografia breu
The love story of Elizabeth Barrett, one of the most prominent poets of the Victorian era from a young age, and the poet and playwright Robert Browning, has itself inspired many works of fiction and biography. Their courtship had to be conducted in secret as her domineering father did not want his children to marry. After much planning, in 1846 the couple married in a private ceremony in London and then eloped to Paris. They went on to Italy, which became their home almost continuously until Elizabeth's death. In 1849, at the age of 43, between four miscarriages, she gave birth to a son, Robert Wiedemann Barrett Browning, whom they called Pen.

Aurora Leigh is an epic poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Published in 1856, it tells the story of a young woman poet, Aurora Leigh, who rejects the marriage proposal of her cousin, Romney Leigh, and pursues her artistic and social aspirations in England, Italy, and France. Life happens, as life often does, and her views on art, love, society, and gender are challenged. In the end, it reads to reflect Browning’s own life experiences, such as her love for Robert Browning, her illness, and her interest in social reform. The poem is written in blank verse and consists of nine books, each with a different theme and tone and is considered one of her most ambitious and original works. This is poetry at its finest. A fun fact, or lore, the poem Aurora Leigh is claimed to have influenced many writers and artists, such as Virginia Woolf, George Eliot, Emily Dickinson, and Christina Rossetti…and yours truly!… (més)

Really enjoyed this, though I didn't get many of the allusions and the flowery language got to be a bit much.

The best part were the sections discoursing on aesthetics. The most boring parts were the conversations and the unreadable parentheses in already-longish bits of dialogue.
