"Backgrounds and Contexts" includes thirty letters or letter excerpts by Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning that trace Aurora Leigh’s inception, evolution, and publication.
Seven contemporary documents—on the "woman question," prostitution, socialism, and poetic theory—place the text historically.
