|Armstrong Browning Library | 19th Century Women Poets
Featuring works created between the late 1700s and the 1910s, the collection embraces a range of styles, from simple statements to effusive eulogies. Topics covered include religious themes, ancient Greek and Roman myth, daily life, romance, motherhood, and local and national history. Infant mortality, an ever-present specter in the lives of 19th century women, is a recurring theme addressed in almost every title in the collection.
The collection also features works from the Browning family’s personal collection. These books feature inscriptions addressed to Robert (the “Guild Master”), Elizabeth and their son Pen, and are among the most prized acquisitions of the Armstrong Browning Library.
This collection is considered an active collection. Items will be added periodically as they are acquired by Baylor University and processed through the Digitization Projects Group.
