Blaise Delorme, the ostentatious Roman Catholic; and the unscrupulous society beauty Lady Waldemar.
However, the dominant presence in the work is the narrator, Aurora Leigh herself. From early years in Italy and adolescence in the West Country to the vocational choices, creative struggles, and emotional entanglements of her first decade of adult life, Aurora Leigh develops her ideas on art, love, God, the Woman Question, and society.
This is the first critically edited and fully annotated edition for almost a century.
