Completion of editorial work on volumes 22-24 of The Brownings' Correspondence. (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 22-24 of the edition, covering the period February 1856-August 1858. During this time, the Brownings and their correspondents discuss current political, social, and cultural issues and personalities, including Italian independence, Napoleon III, the Sepoy Mutiny, art, literature, the Pre-Raphaelites, religion, Pope Pius IX, spiritualism, and women's rights. This last is the subject of numerous letters focusing on EBB's masterwork Aurora Leigh (1857). RB's Men and Women (1855) continues to receive comment.
