In addition to their poetry, Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning are well-known for their numerous letters and correspondence. Scholars and fans will appreciate The Browning Letters, a project that started as a partnership between Baylor University's Armstrong Browning Library and Wellesley College. Because the Brownings' letters and other memorabilia are physically housed in separate collections around the world, this digital collaboration aims "to make the compelling love story of the two poets available to scholars and enthusiasts around the globe." One of the stars of this project is its collection of the Brownings' famous love letters written during their courtship from 1845-1846. This resource also includes correspondence written to and from their family members and other poets, such as Alfred Tennyson. The collection may be searched by multiple fields (including keyword, author, date, first line of text, and location) via the advanced search link at the top. As of this writing, The Browning Letters includes digitized contributions from Balliol College at Oxford University, the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas-Austin, and Ohio State University. This an active collection and those interested can subscribe via RSS feed to be notified of new additions.
