Elizabeth Barrett Browning was one of the most popular poets during the Victorian time. Her works have become very popular in both the United States and England. Perhaps the most popular poems of Elizabeth was the undying “How do I Love Thee?” that until the present days is still used by hopeless romantics in expressing their love to a certain person. Her husband, Robert Browning, published her collections of poems shortly after Elizabeth’s death.

The first known poem written by Barrett Browning was the "On the Cruelty of Forcement to Man” which she was only six or eight. The poem’s manuscript way presently kept at the New York Public Library’s Berg Collection. The exact date of when the poem is written remained unclear because the number 2 of the date 1812 was written on something which is already scratched out. The “Stanzas Excited by Reflections on the Present State of Greece” was Barrett Browning’s first independent publication for the New Monthly Magazine published on May 1821.

Her poetry and first collections of poems called An Essay on Mind, was published in 1826 along with her other poems. It reflects Barrett Browning’s passions for Greece and Byron politics. The publication attracted the attention of Hugh Stuart Boyd, a blind scholar of Greek language, with whom she had her scholarly correspondence maintained.
