Elizabeth Barrett Browning is chiefly remembered today for the rather sentimental book of verse she wrote for her husband, Sonnets from the Portuguese. She was revered in Victorian England, generally considered one of the finest poets of the 19th century, and was an adventurous and intelligent poet, writing in diverse classical forms and experimenting in a startlingly modern mode. Her influence on later poets such as Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti is incalculable.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning was an English poet and translator. Born on March 6, 1806, Barrett Browning became proficient in Greek, Latin, French, and other European languages. At the age of eleven she wrote a verse "epic" in four books of rhyming couplets, "The Battle of Marathon," which was privately printed in 1820 at her father's expense. She went on to write such works as "An essay on mind," "Sonnets from the Portuguese," and "Aurora Leigh." In September of 1846, she secretly married the poet Robert Browning, and they moved to Italy, eventually settling in Florence, where she remained until her death in 1861.
