Although much has been written on Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, little attention has been paid to her childhood, spent for the most part near Ledbury. These were crucial, character-forming years, during which she was crippled by illness and dominated by her father. Her long poem, "The Battle of Marathon" was published at the age of 14 and "An Essay on Mind" at 20. This book focuses on these years, drawing upon little mentioned diaries now held in America, and other material.
