Editing and preparation of annotations for 652 letters comprising volumes 19-22 of The Brownings' Correspondence covering the period from April 1853 to August 1856. (36 months)

The letters of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, scattered in over 300 public and private collections, represent one of the largest and most comprehensive bodies of literary and social commentary on the nineteenth century. The aim of The Brownings' Correspondence, projected to be 40 volumes, is to publish the complete text of all the poets' letters with full annotations, thus making them accessible to a modern audience. This application requests three-year funding to edit volumes 19-22 of the edition, covering the period April 1853-August 1856. During this time, the Brownings and their correspondents discuss a wide range of social, political, and cultural subjects including women's rights, spiritualism, painting, sculpture, various religious issues, and the Crimean War. The letters in these volumes serve to illuminate the work of both poets as they work on what are arguably their greatest poetic achievements: RB's Men and Women (1855) and EBB's Aurora Leigh (1857).
