5.0 out of 5 stars A liberated thinker in a time of male dominance, 11 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Poetical Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Vol. I (Kindle Edition)
One of the most important women writers of hers, or of any age, Elizabeth Barrett, was possessed of two things, fantastic literary ability and great strength of character.

The oldest daughter of a tyrannical widower, Elizabeth also had serious health problems. Perceiving his daughter as totally dependent upon him, her father kept her in the 'guilded cage'which was her bedroom. Here he allowed her to have meetings with the great Victorian poet Robert Browning, in the company of which, love erupted. Their marriage allowed this woman of eclectic taste, to write the glorious works to be found in The Poetical Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

In this wonderful 1890 compilation, together with a highly informative introduction, is the very epitome of what Kindle reading represents, inspirational and qualitative reading.

What The Poetical Work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning brings to the reader is the work of an accessible genius, who could so easily been lost to the world, but instead,here is a writer whose output has, and will always, inspire her readers to challenge, and subsequently, overcome all barriers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublimity in black and white., 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Poetical Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Vol. I (Kindle Edition)
I will never tire of reading Elizabeth Barrett Browning and have a beautifully bound copy beside my bed, often leafing through the thinnest of thin paper which comprises my collection, I've bought it for my Kindle too because the hard copy volume is becoming a little tattered. Sublimity in black and white.
