Sonnets from the Portuguese

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The cover for the Standard Ebooks edition of Sonnets from the Portuguese.

Description

Sonnets from the Portuguese is a collection of forty-four love sonnets. Despite what the title suggests, Browning in fact composed the sonnets in English. She decided to frame them as “translations” because she was concerned they may have been too personal to publish. Fortunately her husband, Robert Browning, convinced her to publish them, and they went on to become some of the most famous and critically-acclaimed love sonnets to this day.
