About Dear Love:
Author Jerome Kilty uses the poems and letters of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, to present this compelling portrait of a couple whose words and love are legendary. First corresponding via letters, when Elizabeth thinks of Browning as merely “an acquaintance”, his poetry moves her so deeply they eventually meet. Chastised by her stern father and guilty over the death of her beloved brother, Elizabeth is bereft and isolated. Browning begins to court her and she is finally persuaded to marry and accompany him to Italy, where their love might grow away from the over-watchful eyes of her antagonistic, Victorian father. Elizabeth Barrett loved Robert Browning beyond all enduring; Dear Love recounts the ways.
