This edition collects the most important work by one of the greatest poets of the Victorian era. One of the leading poets of the nineteenth century, Elizabeth Barrett Browning had a profound influence on her contemporaries and on writers that followed her. This edition provides a rich and varied selection of Barrett Browning's poetry, including relatively neglected material from her early career and works never before included in editions of her poetry. The edition is comprehensively annotated and includes a critical introduction; detailed headnotes for each poem also provide the reader with a deep understanding of the historical, biographical, and literary contexts in which the poems were written. This title includes seldom-anthologized poems from EBB's early and late work. It is the only edition with appendices. It features very detailed apparatus (headnotes for each poem, extensive annotation).
