This is a thoroughly researched book, using new-found information, on the life of this enigmatic poet. She really was a remarkable woman, particularly in that time period; as was her equally remarkable husband, Robert Browning. The new information reveals a woman who shows unexpected strength, both physically and emotionally, that was completely antithetical to her adulthood at home, pre-marriage, as an invalid. Her father, also, emerges as more three-dimensional than the movie version and earlier books, depict him. Yes, he was a tyrant, but also capable of being charming and enjoying social events and family fun. All in all, if you want to know the real Mrs. Browning and her family, this is the book for you.

This is an excellent biography, very well written. It flows easily and is never confusing, with one notable exception -- the use of pet names in Elizabeth's family. The employment of nicknames is a peculiarity which biographers are not required to adopt, much less slavishly adhere to, but they do it anyway.

Elizabeth's intellectual brilliance even in her early teens was noteworthy, but it was after the family's move from the countryside to London that her poetical gift came into public notice. Unfortunately the move to London also coincided with the breakdown in her health and with the increasing domination of her father over his children.

A highly effective aspect of this book is the frequent use of brief quotations from letters written by Elizabeth and other people. Sometimes it is just a phrase but it is useful in establishing place, time, color, opinion, and every other particular of interest to the reader.

I highly recommend this wonderful, very thorough history of an exceptional woman.

A fine and inexpensive book.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning's poetry, especially the "Sonnets from the Portuguese," is beautiful, intelligent, and honest love poetry. Anyone who has experienced the doubts, fears, and transformation of love will recognize the truth of the poet's struggle to trust and to love.
