orig. Elizabeth Barrett

(6 mar. 1806, cerca de Durham, Inglaterra–29 jun. 1861, Florencia, Italia).

Poetisa británica. A pesar de ser inválida y sentirse cohibida delante de extraños, su poesía cobró celebridad en los círculos literarios con la publicación de sus libros de poemas en 1834 y 1844. Conoció a Robert Browning en 1845 y, tras un noviazgo que mantuvo oculto a su despótico padre, se casaron y se establecieron en Florencia. Su fama se debe en gran medida a los poemas de amor que escribió durante su noviazgo, Sonnets from the Portuguese [Sonetos del portugués] (1850). Su obra más ambiciosa, la novela en verso libre Aurora Leigh (1857), fue enormemente popular.
