Tag Archives: Elizabeth Barrett Browning


I recently finished Flush, Virginia Woolf’s biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s cocker spaniel.  It was actually a very fine book, beautifully written by one of our language’s finest artists.  Dog lovers would especially appreciate it, but any reader would enjoy the pathos, and the insights into the sensibilities of Flush, the cocker spaniel, and the life and character of Barrett Browning.  I give it, without reservation, two paws up.
