Publisher's Summary

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." "Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be..." These lines from some of the most famous poems in the English language are also the legacy of a great love story. Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning were united not only as man and wife, but also as writers who shared and debated ideas, values, and literary craft. This volume includes the story of their creative lives as well as the following poems from Robert: "Love Among the Ruins," "Summum Bonum," "Life in a Love," "Song," "A Pearl," "A Girl," "In Three Days," "My Last Duchess," "Why I Am a Liberal," "Abt Vogler," "Prospice," and many others. Elizabeth's poems include: "Grief," "The Soul's Expression," "The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim's Point," "A Song for the Ragged Schools of London," and "Sonnets from the Portuguese (#1-44)."

Very poor sound quality

I purchased this recently. The sound quality is so poor, even as an enhanced quality download, as to make it virtually impossible to listen to. I couldn't make out the words of EBBs poetry, as read by Joanna David, even with Bose headphones attached to my iPod Touch. Very disappointing since the content seems so wonderful.
