Browning, Elizabeth Barrett (18061861)

Browning, Elizabeth Barrett, née Barrett, poetess, born at Carlton Hall, Durham; a woman of great natural abilities, which developed early; suffered from injury to her spine; went to Torquay for her health; witnessed the death by drowning of a brother, that gave her a shock the effect of which never left her; published in 1838 “The Seraphim,” and in 1844 “The Cry of the Children”; fell in with and married Robert Browning in 1846, who immediately took her abroad, settling in Florence; wrote in 1850 “Sonnets from the Portuguese,” in 1851 “Casa Guidi Windows,” and in 1856 “Aurora Leigh,” “a novel in verse,” and in 1860 “Poems before Congress”; ranks high, if not highest, among the poetesses of England; she took an interest all through life in public affairs; her work is marked by musical diction, sensibility, knowledge, and imagination, which no poetess has rivalled (18061861).
