Overview

The Love Poems of Elizabeth and Robert Browning by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Browning

Robert Browning's poetry includes many highly personal lyrics and dramatic monologues addressed to Elizabeth, tracing the multiple variations and permutations of love. But through all his poems, from "Love Among the Ruins" to "A Lover's Quarrel" and the companion pieces "Meeting at Night" and "Parting at Morning" desire is the keynote of Browning's poetry.

Although literature is rich in the outpouring of passion, few poets have ever expressed it more poignantly than Elizabeth Barret Browning in her magnificent Sonnets from the Portuguese, forty-four interlocking poems which she had secretly written to Robert without thought of publication. Soon after receiving this gift from his wife, Robert urged her to publish them. The Love Poems of Elizabeth and Robert Browning reflects the passionate union of two great souls unforgettably revealed in their poetry.
