Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806 - 1861) was a renowned English poet of the Victorian era. She started writing poetry at the age of eleven and published her first collection in 1838. She claimed her place among the great poets with publication of Poems, Sonnets from the Portuguese, and verse-novel Aurora Leigh. She married Robert Browning, another famous poet, in 1846, after a secret courtship that defied her father's wishes. They moved to Italy, where she lived until her death.
