Summary
"Highlighting the lives and loves of celebrated literary couples, Wilson reveals the depth of their passion for language - their own as well as their partner's. Taking as a point of departure the legendary courtship of Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett, a courtship conceived on the printed page, Wilson explores how easily, how seductively, literary desire becomes sexual desire, and vice versa."--BOOK JACKET
