Sonnets From the Portuguese

Poetry lovers look no further! Elizabeth Barret Browning’s passionate collection of 44 love sonnets is all you'll ever need.

Following the Italian model made popular by Petrarch, Browning’s intimate prose spans the famous ‘Sonnet 43’, an emotional expression of everlasting love for her husband. Named after Richard Browning’s nickname for Elizabeth, and to protect her privacy as a means of suggesting a translated work, 'Sonnets from the Portuguese' weaves a heartfelt collection ideal for romance fans of Nicholas Spark’s ‘The Notebook’. Elizabeth Barret Browning (1806-1861) was an English poet, who wrote during the Victorian era. Following her marriage to the writer Robert Browning, Elizabeth moved to Italy where she lived for the rest of her life. Her poetry such as ‘The Cry of the Children’ urged child-labour reforms, whilst ‘A Drama in Exile’, ‘A Vision of Poets’ and ‘Lady Geraldine’s Courtship’ appeared in her widely successful 1844 two-volume ‘Poems’. Browning is remembered today as a rival candidate for poet laureate Tennyson on the death of Wordsworth.
