Join host Cassandra Tribe and special guest, Michael Edigio Quigg, as they read from The Letters of Robert Browning and Elisabeth Barrett Barrett (volume 1: 1845-1846)on a special one hour episode of Sunday Radio. Robert Browning and Elisabeth Barrett Barrett (Elisabeth Barrett Browning) are known as much for their individual works as writers as for the nature of their romance. Their marriage had a sense of spiritual kinship and shared artistic purpose that has been an inspiration to all who have come to know their story. Nowhere is this so evident then in the letters they shared during their early courtship and that grew into a powerful union of passion, poetry and commitment. This book was first published in 1900 by Smith, Elder & Company in England and was edited by Robert Browning. The letters in this volume cover the beginning of their relationships, courtship and their eventual elopement and secret marriage in 1846. This collection was edited by Robert Browning after Elisabeth’s death in 1861. Works by Elisabeth Barett Browing include: Sonnets from the Portugese (1850), Casa Guidi Windows (1851) and Aurora Leigh (1857). Robert Browning is best know for his works: Men and Women (1855) and Dramatis Personae (1864). This book is available in the public domain.
