诗人的传记

伊丽莎白·巴雷特·勃朗宁是一位被同时代人广泛阅读的英国诗人,她出生在达勒姆附近的考克斯霍庄园,是11个孩子中的长女。1809年,全家搬到了赫里福德郡的霍普角,伊丽莎白在那里度过了童年。作为一个狂热的读者,她在家里接受教育,她的父亲让她进入他的古典图书馆。她的第一本诗集在14岁时私人出版。她一生中大部分时间身体都不好。她的母亲于1828年去世,她的父亲在1832年废奴运动期间被迫出售希望庄园,结果全家搬到了伦敦。十年后,伊丽莎白或多或少地病弱了,但她利用她的禁闭时间写了诗(1844),这是所有人都庆祝的,并导致她被介绍给诗人罗伯特·勃朗宁。这时,她也成了米特福德小姐的好朋友。1846年9月12日,她与勃朗宁秘密结婚,并立即移居意大利。他们在佛罗伦萨的Casa Guidi安顿下来,1849年,她在那里生下了一个儿子,Robert Wiedeman Barrett Browning。 Her health improved greatly during her years in Italy, allowing her to travel throughout Europe. By the time of the publication of Aurora Leigh, a poem dealing with the restrictions imposed on women by Victorian society, she was firmly established as a poet of distinction. In fact, most of her work expresses her concern for the liberal causes of her day, including the cause of Italian nationalism. The Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850) altered the conventions of the love sonnet by the use of a tone of playful humour. In the last years of her life she was influenced by the popular interest in spiritualism. The Poems Before Congress (1860), although written in her final years when her health was deteriorating, are said to contain some of her most forceful and beautiful lyrics.
