Elizabeth Barrett Browning : Catarina to Camoens

'On her deathbed Lucy [Harrison] asked Amy [Greener, her lover] to read to her from Elizabeth Barrett Browning's "Caterina to Camoens" [...] It must have been painful for Miss Greener to read these words [about a dying woman's reconciling herself to the idea that her lover might love again] aloud in the whitewashed bedroom, among the plain oak furniture which her friend had knocked together.'

Century: 1850-1899 / 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Amy Greener      Print: Book
