'Her ardour and abundance, her brilliant descriptive powers, her shrewd and caustic humour infect us with her own enthusiasm' wrote Virginia Woolf of Aurora Leigh in 1931. 'We laugh, we protest, we complain-it is absurd, it is impossible, we cannot tolerate this exaggeration a moment longer-but, nevertheless, we read to the end entralled. What more can an author ask?' Aurora Leigh(1856), Elizabeth Barrett Browning's epic novel in blank verse, tells the story of the making of a woman poet, exploring 'the woman question', art and its relation to politics and social oppression. In addition to Aurora Leigh, this volume contains poetry from several volumes of Elizabeth Barret Browning's published poetry from 1826-1862, including The Cry of the Children (1843), Casa Guidi Windows (1851) and the British Library manuscript text of the 'Sonnets from the Portuguese" which records her courtship with Robert Browning.

"I've freed other towns of beetles and bats---and for a tidy sum, I'll rid you of your rats!" An offer the townsmen couldn't refuse, until he was done and there was money to lose. This beautifully illustrated heirloom edition of Browning's poem of broken promises and tragic consequences.

    These poems have long been considered the finest written by a woman in the English language, their literary excellence is surpassed only by the sonnets of Shakespeare. First published in 1850, "Sonnets from the Portuguese" is composed of forty-four poems which Elizabeth had secretly written for her husband, Robert Browning.
