The EBB Archive
Scholarship since the 1970s has re-established Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) as one of the most internationally influential 19th-Century English authors. Her poems, essays and extensive correspondence entered into debates on poetics, aesthetics, religion and politics, including issues such as factory reform, women’s rights, the anti-slavery movement, Italian liberation, and the peace and free trade movement.
The EBB Archive presents teaching texts and resources edited by Beverly Taylor and Marjorie Stone to supplement Elizabeth Barrett Browning: Selected Poems. It also provides additional scholarly, critical and media resources prepared by the Dalhousie project team to supplement The Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, in partnership with Sandra Donaldson’s and Crystal Albert’s University of North Dakota Elizabeth Barrett Browning Project
