This is the first modern scholarly edition of the works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861). A canonical Victorian writer and thinker, Barrett Browning personified the engaged intellectual. She participated in the debates on Italian unification, women's rights, the anti-slavery movement, factory reform, religion, aesthetics and poetics. This edition provides a foundation for a complete analysis and interpretation of her works - and of Victorian Britain.

The edition presents accurate and accessible texts of all her published literary works. Copytexts are carefully chosen to represent poems in their final version, as overseen by Barrett Browning herself. It also includes all her known unpublished works. New transcripts are drawn from manuscript sources in private and public archives in the UK and the US. Several works have recently been reattributed: a poem long thought to be by Robert Browning and a sermon in the style of Bishop Andrewes which Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote when she was seventeen. This edition offers the first clear copies of these works.

New editorial material includes a general introduction, a critical and a textual introduction to each volume, headnotes to poems, footnotes recording textual variants, endnotes, short-title indexes and first-line indexes to each volume, and a consolidated index. The Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning will be essential for scholars of nineteenth century literature, women's writing and Victorian Studies.
