Sample text

Mill. December 18 EBB gives Mary Maddox a copy of PB in which – presumably now or later – she writes ‘The Tears of Jesus’, an early version of ‘The Weeping Saviour: Hymn III’ (Seraphim). 1834 February 6 (Thurs) RB writes ‘On the deleterious effects of tea’, another version of which dates from as late as June 1883. Setting off late this month he travels to St Petersburg via Holland, Germany, and Lithuania with Chevalier George de Benkhausen, Russian consul general in Britain. ‘Porphyria’ and ‘Johannes Agricola’ (see January 1836) may have been written during this period.

1839 33 August 3 (Sat) In a letter to MRM, she discusses and defends what some feel to be her ‘obstinate proclivity’ towards bringing religion into her poems. ’ If the religion seems to intrude, this must be the result of her own lack of skill and not of any ‘unfitness of the subject’. Late this month EBB writes ‘A Dream’. This summer is the most likely date for RB’s composition of Pippa. He will tell Alexandra Orr that he ‘was walking alone, in a wood near Dulwich, when the image flashed upon him of some one walking thus alone through life; one apparently too obscure to leave a trace of his or her passage, yet exercising a lasting though unconscious influence at every step of it; and the image shaped itself into the little silk-winder of Asolo, Felippa or Pippa’.

6d. October EBB’s ‘Catarina to Camoens’ (see 17 November 1831; revised for 1844) ) is published in Graham’s Magazine. 2 (Mon) She tells MRM that ‘The Dead Pan’ will be saved for publication in 1844 because Kenyon and ‘perhaps I myself ’ think it ‘superior to any preceding poem of mine’. She has also written over eight hundred lines of ‘A Vision of Poets’ (1844). 4 Horne writes to ask EBB for a biographical sketch (provided) and a portrait (refused) for the volume he is to edit, A New Spirit of the Age.
