Dared and done : the marriage of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning by Julia Markus( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 1,636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the social, political, and emotional forces that shaped the lives and art of nineteenth-century poets Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, whose courtship ranks with the great love stories of all time. Elizabeth, at thirty-nine, was a poet of international fame and unmarried, confined by illness, morphine, and the tyranny of her father. Robert Browning, an admired young poet and playwright and devotee of Elizabeth's, had written to Elizabeth long before they met. "I love your verses with all my heart -- and I love you too." Markus chronicles their extraordinary courtship and marriage, and shows us how the political events of the times inspired the great dramatic monologues of Robert's middle years and how Italy's stormy reunification inspired Elizabeth's later work. To tell their story, Markus for the first time makes use of much of Elizabeth's unpublished correspondence, amid a wealth of other documents

Across an untried sea : discovering lives hidden in the shadow of convention and time by Julia Markus( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Retrieves the lives of Victorian women--writers, actresses, poets, journalists, sculptors, and social reformers--celebrated in their day but forgotten in ours. Focuses in particular on the American Charlotte Cushman, the most famous English-speaking actress of her day, and on the Scottish Jane Welsh Carlyle, a brilliant London hostess who gave up private ambition to become the wife of her friend Thomas Carlyle, a difficult, demanding man with whom she had a sexless marriage. Cushman became an international star on the New York and London stage, and her Romeo and Hamlet were sensations. An independent woman with shrewd business sense who made her own fortune and supported her entire family, she dressed like a man from the waist up and had a succession of female lovers, each one of whom she planned to live with for life, each of whom she 'married.' Interweaving the worlds of expatriate Rome, literary London, New York, and St. Louis, Markus gathers together a number of interrelated and renowned women who were relegated in the public eye to the position of Virgin Queen (no matter how much married) or Old Maid, but who were, in fact, privately leading vibrant, independent, sexual lives.--From publisher description

Casa Guidi windows by Elizabeth Barrett Browning( Book )

10 editions published in 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1847, Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-61) moved with her new husband to an apartment in Florence, in the wake of perhaps the most famous literary courtship of the nineteenth century. She soon took to calling their home the Casa Guidi. From there, she observed the events of the early Risorgimento. It was at this time that she produced some of her finest work, including Aurora Leigh and Casa Guidi Windows. An impressionistic and thoroughly atypical landmark in the Romantic canon, the latter was written in two parts, separated by several years. Beginning with the memory of a singing child and a lush description of Florence's beauty, the first part explores the air of optimism that permeates both the city and the narrator. By the second, disillusionment is rife: Florence has become the scene of demonstrations and broken political promises. This reissue of the 1851 first edition includes Barrett Browning's own introduction

6 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biographer Julia Markus has written a portrait of the brilliant, tortured, and controversial James Anthony Froude - the quintessential Victorian, father of modern biography, historian, diplomat, and prodigal son." "J. Anthony Froude captures the roiling cultural history of a century through one man's dynamic life. From his birth in 1818 to his death in 1894, J. Anthony Froude embodied the issues and complexities of his time. Through the story of his life, Markus elucidates the major ideological issues of the nineteenth century - sexuality, colonialism, and the widespread challenges to religion's long-held cultural primacy."
