Elizabeth had foreseen her father's anger but had not anticipated her brothers' rejection. The Brownings were well respected, and even famous. Elizabeth grew stronger and in , at the age of 43, between four miscarriages, she gave birth to a son, Robert Wiedeman Barrett Browning , whom they called Pen.

Their son later married, but had no legitimate children. At her husband's insistence, Elizabeth's second edition of Poems included her love sonnets; as a result, her popularity increased as well as critical regard , and her artistic position was confirmed. The couple came to know a wide circle of artists and writers including William Makepeace Thackeray , sculptor Harriet Hosmer who, she wrote, seemed to be the "perfectly emancipated female" and Harriet Beecher Stowe.

In she met Margaret Fuller , and the female French novelist George Sand in , whom she had long admired. Among her intimate friends in Florence was the writer Isa Blagden , whom she encouraged to write novels.

Browning said that she died "smilingly, happily, and with a face like a girl's Her last word was Some modern scientists speculate her illness may have been hypokalemic periodic paralysis , a genetic disorder that causes weakness and many of the other symptoms she described. Barrett Browning's first known poem was written at the age of six or eight, "On the Cruelty of Forcement to Man".

Later, at Boyd's suggestion, she translated Aeschylus ' Prometheus Bound published in ; retranslated in Elizabeth opposed slavery and published two poems highlighting the barbarity of slavers and her support for the abolitionist cause: In "Runaway" she describes a slave woman who is whipped, raped, and made pregnant as she curses the slavers. The date of publication of these poems is in dispute, but her position on slavery in the poems is clear and may have led to a rift between Elizabeth and her father. After the Jamaican slave uprising of —32, her father and uncle continued to treat the slaves humanely.

She corresponded with other writers, including Mary Russell Mitford , who would become a close friend and who would support Elizabeth's literary ambitions. In The Seraphim and Other Poems appeared, the first volume of Elizabeth's mature poetry to appear under her own name. Sonnets from the Portuguese was published in There is debate about the origin of the title. However, "my little Portuguese" was a pet name that Browning had adopted for Elizabeth and this may have some connection.

The verse-novel Aurora Leigh, her most ambitious and perhaps the most popular of her longer poems, appeared in It is the story of a female writer making her way in life, balancing work and love, and based on Elizabeth's own experiences. Aurora Leigh was an important influence on Susan B. Anthony 's thinking about the traditional roles of women, with regard to marriage versus independent individuality. Browning's poems are, in all respects, the utterance of a woman — of a woman of great learning, rich experience, and powerful genius, uniting to her woman's nature the strength which is sometimes thought peculiar to a man.

Much of Barrett Browning's work carries a religious theme. She says in her writing, "We want the sense of the saturation of Christ's blood upon the souls of our poets, that it may cry through them in answer to the ceaseless wail of the Sphinx of our humanity, expounding agony into renovation. Something of this has been perceived in art when its glory was at the fullest. Something of a yearning after this may be seen among the Greek Christian poets, something which would have been much with a stronger faculty".

She explored the religious aspect in many of her poems, especially in her early work, such as the sonnets. She was interested in theological debate, had learned Hebrew and read the Hebrew Bible. In the correspondence Barrett Browning kept with the Reverend William Merry from to on predestination and salvation by works, she identifies herself as a Congregationalist: In , Ledbury, Herefordshire, held a design competition to build an Institute in honour of Barrett Browning.

It was based on the timber-framed Market House, which was opposite the site. It was completed in However, Nikolaus Pevsner was not impressed by its style. In , it became a public library. How Do I Love Thee? How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace.

I love thee to the level of every day's Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

Mrs. Browning / Budwing

I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death. Her sense of Art is pure in itself.

Barrett Browning's poetry greatly influenced Emily Dickinson , who admired her as a woman of achievement.
