AURORA LEIGH
A POEM
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
LONDON: J. MILLER,
1864

Dedication
to
JOHN KENYON, ESQ.
THE words 'cousin' and 'friend' are constantly recurring in this poem, the last pages of which have been finished under the hospitality of your roof, my own dearest cousin and friend:–cousin and friend, in a sense of less equality and greater disinterestedness than 'Romney' 's.

Ending, therefore, and preparing once more to quit England, I venture to leave in your hands this book, the most mature of my works, and the one into which my highest convictions upon Life and Art have entered; that as, through my various efforts in literature and steps in life, you have believed in me, borne with me, and been generous to me, far beyond the common uses of mere relationship or sympathy of mind, so you may kindly accept, in sight of the public, this poor sign of esteem, gratitude, and affection, from

Your unforgetting
E. B. B.

89 DEVONSHIRE PLACE,
October 17, 1856.
