Language of the Browning letters

Looking for studies on the language of the Browning letters I was reminded of James Pennebaker’s discussion of pronouns in the works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning. See his intreaguing and very readable (though non-linguistic) book called  The Secret Life of Pronouns. What our words say about us (2011, Bloomsbury Press, pp. 218-220).

I was also advised to keep an eye out for publications on their language in the journal Victorian Poetry. “Any substantial studies on the topic,” my informant told me, “would probably show up there.”  Thanks for all this, Jennifer McDonell!
