The love letters of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning are surely some of the most famous ever written. As a tale of intellectual sympathy, mutual love, and a daring elopement, they need no editing to tell their thrilling story. Romantics love them because the story is better than fiction. Scholars love them because they are a record of the creative genius of both poets, who wrote some of their best work during the time of their courtship. Harvard University Press published a 2-volume transcription of the letters in 1969, but no complete photographic copies of the originals have been made until now.
