Love Letters of Barrett, Browning Go Online

Inspired - General

Barrett Browning love letters"I love your verses with all my heart, dear Miss Barrett ..."

So begins the first love letter to 19th century poet Elizabeth Barrett from her future husband, fellow poet Robert Browning.

Now, in honor of Valentine's Day, their 573 love letters, which capture their courtship, their blossoming love and their forbidden marriage, are available online for the first time as part of a digitization collaboration between Wellesley and Baylor University in Texas.
