Sonnets from the Portuguese

"Sonnets from the Portuguese" was written by Elizabeth Moulton-Barrett during her courtship with the poet Robert Browning.  Portuguese was Robert's pet name for Elizabeth.  The sonnets, not shown to him until after the marriage, were published in 1850.  My old leather-bound copy, published by Chapman & Hall, was originally owned by my husband's grandfather.  I used the original punctuation, etc. here.   The sonnets, all very beautiful, can be accessed by the "enter" button.
