Elizabeth Barrett Browning was born on this day in 1806. She was an English poet of the Romantic Movement.
“How Do I Love Thee?” (Sonnet 43) is probably Barrett Browning’s most famous poem today. It was written during her courtship with Robert Browning.
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight for the ends of being and ideal grace.”
