Elizabeth Barrett Browning's classic poem, read by Diana Quick.
Written in blank verse, Aurora Leigh is Browning's self-styled 'novel in verse', a first-person narration of the lives of Marian Erle and the eponymous Aurora. Travelling across Florence, London, and Paris, and playing off the works of Anne Louise Germaine de Staël and George Sand, Aurora Leigh is one of the greatest poems of the nineteenth century.
