Excerpt from Fifty Years of English Song: Selected From the Poets of the Reign of Victoria; The Poets of the First Half of the Reign; The Novelis-Poets

Browning, elizabeth barrett (1809 Born at Hope End, near Ledbury, and daughter of Mr. Moulton, a wealthy Jamaica planter, who afterwards added the name of Barrett to his own, making it moulton-barrett. The family subsequently removed to Gloucester Place, London, and the only instructors Mrs. Browning seemed to have had were her father, a man of much cultivation, and her blind and learned friend Hugh Stuart Boyd, to whom the poem Wine of Cyprus was addressed, and with whom she read not only classical Greek literature but also the works of the Greek Fathers. She was in addition an omnivorous reader of every kind of literature, not excluding the works of contemporary poets, among whom Byron, Shelley, and Coleridge made a great impression upon her. In 1837 she broke a blooddrowned in sight of the house, and the body never recovered. This tragedy nearly killed her, and having conceived a horror of Torquay she was, as soon as her condition made the change possible, moved back to Gloucester Place in an invalid carriage. She spent the next six years in a darkened room reading and annotating her Greek and Italian books, as well as her Hebrew Bible, having had her Plato bound like a novel in order to de ceive her doctor. In 1845 she met Mr. Browning, through the agency of their mutual friend Mr. Kenyon; literary gossip insist ing that the meeting was due to the graceful compliment paid to Browning's poetry in Lady Geraldine's Courts/zip. In I846 she was married to Mr. Browning at St. Marylebone parish church. For this marriage her father never forgave her, although his ob jections to it had no better foundation than an unreasonable monomania that during his life he ought to be the sole object of his daughters' care, and that none of them should marry. After the marriage Mr. And Mrs. Browning settled at Florence, where Mrs. Browning spent the remainder of her life, and where in 1849 her son Robert Barrett Browning, the present sculptor and painter, was born. During her residence at Florence she took a keen interest in contemporary Italian politics, which fur nished the subjects for many Of her later poems. She published Essay on Mina', I827; Promet/zeus Bound, and ll/iscellaneous Poems, 1833 T/ze Scrap/aim and ot/zer Poems, 18 38 T/ze Romaunt oft/1e Page, 1839; A Drama of Exile and Lady Geraldine's Court slzip were contained in a collected edition of her poems, 1844; Sonnets from tlze Portuguese, 18 50; Casa Guidi Windows, 1851 Aurora Leig/z, 1856 Poems before C nress, 1860; Last Poems (published posthumously), 1862.
