About this Recording

BROWNING, E.B. / ROSSETTI, C.: Great Poets (The)

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861) and Christina Rossetti (1830–1894) were both regarded as the female poet laureates of their time, and between them their writings spanned almost the entire Victorian age, from the end of Romanticism to the beginnings of Modernism. This selection of their shorter works contains all the major themes that animated them—social justice, faith, love and mortality—and some of the bestloved poetry in English, including In The Deep Midwinter and How Do I Love Thee? These poems reflect the changing world in which they were composed, but they also reflect the complex passions of two extraordinary women.

  • Two leading English 19th Century female poets on one CD
  • How Do I Love Thee? is an ideal gift for Valentine’s Day
  • Part of the widely praised The Great Poets series which ranges from Shelly to Yeats
  • Approximate running time: 75 minutes
  • Format: 1 CD set
