    3. But should you read it? If poetry is not your thing, but you feel you should at least be trying to access your civilization's heritage, than Browing is a fairly easy, accessible entry point for you. If you've acknowledged that not reading poetry marks you as a philistine and have taken up the hobby, Browning's works should definitely be on your list.Omnibrowbooks

    4. This is an engaging collection of love letters and poems between Robert and Elizabeth Browning. One thing that the collection demonstrates was what a command Elizabeth had of the sonnet. Critics love to focus on Shakespeare and Spencer (and Seamus Heaney among the modern practitioners) but Elizabeth was an excellent writer of sonnets. The "Sonnets from the Portuguese" are incredible.

    5. A nice little collection, and quite a lot of content for such a small book. I especially enjoyed the letters section at the end.

    6. I got this book from the library, but I am buying a copy for myself. The letters are unbelievably romantic and beautiful. It draws you into the poetry.

    7. Poetry is purely subjective. It either hits you or it misses. I didn't care for either Robert or Elizabeth Barrett.
