14. Fiona Sampson: Two-Way Mirror – The Life of Elizabeth Barrett Browning – LIVE-STREAMED

Born in 1806, a time when women could neither attend university nor vote, Elizabeth Barrett Browning remains Britain’s greatest female poet, whose work has inspired writers from Emily Dickinson to George Eliot and Virginia Woolf.

In her new biography, Two-Way Mirror, Fiona Sampson incorporates recent archival discoveries to reveal a literary giant and a high-profile activist for the abolition of slavery who believed herself to be of mixed heritage; and a writer who defied chronic illness and long-term disability to change the course of cultural history.
