Surely one of the top five 19th century poets, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, bring the spectacular life of Aurora Leigh to gloriously vivid life. Running the length of a novel, but written in, truly amazingly, blank verse, this is the epic story of a young woman taking on the formidable might of the Victorian male establishment, and emerging victorious. Long before 'Womens Lib', Elizabeth Barrett Browning used her writing to show society that women were a force that should not be messed with.

I came across this work while reading Arnold Bennett's book. He recommended Aurora Leigh for refining one's mind and perceptiveness to the beauty and sophistication of English language. It was more than a decade after reading his recommendation that I read this work, and I was pleasantly surprised by the good storyline and insightfulness the author managed to put in the form of regular metrical lines.

Worth reading and pondering to gain insights into author's life and thoughts about our own.A considered and exacting autobiographical poem.
