Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning are noted Victorian poets – but they also could have been characters in a Victorian novel. Confined to her home by a possessive and demanding father, Elizabeth Barrett’s contact with the outside world was through the poetry that she wrote. Robert Browning fell in love with her from afar through those poems. She was famous while he was unknown. Six years her junior, he overcame hesitancy and initiated a correspondence with her. “Thus began England's most famous literary love affair.” They courted and married in secret. Disowned by her father, Elizabeth Browning lived in Italy with the man for whom she had written “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” Join us as we learn about their partnership and the poetry they created.
