Basil Rathbone performs Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet 43 – How Do Love Thee? How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43) by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every day’s Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.

Lizzie Siddal: a Victorian artist’s model famous for lending her image to some of the most recognizable Pre-Raphaelite works. Not content to be merely a model, she was a poet and painter in her own right. After a ten year difficult relationship, she married Dante Gabriel Rossetti (founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and brother to poet Christina). Lizzie, usually ill, became addicted to Laudanum. After the birth of a stillborn daughter, she fell into a fog of deep depression. She eventually died of a Laudanum overdose. In his grief, Rossetti buried his only manuscript of his poems in her coffin. Seven years later, he had her body exhumed in order to have those poems published. Rest in Peace, indeed.
The Original Supermodel Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal (25 July 1829 11 February 1862) was an English artists’ model, poet and artist who was painted and drawn extensively by artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, including Walter Deverell, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais (including Millais’ 1852 painting Ophelia) and most of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s early paintings of women. Siddal, whose name was originally spelt ‘Siddall’ (it was Rossetti who dropped the second ‘l’) was first noticed by Deverell in 1849, while she was working as a milliner in Cranbourne Alley, London. Neither she nor her family had any artistic aspirations or interests. She was employed as a model by Deverell and through him was introduced to the Pre-Raphaelites. William Michael Rossetti, her brother-in-law, described her as “a most beautiful creature with an air between dignity and sweetness with something that exceeded modest self-respect and partook of disdainful reserve; tall, finely-formed with a lofty neck and regular yet somewhat uncommon features, greenish-blue unsparkling eyes, large perfect eyelids, brilliant complexion and a lavish heavy wealth of coppery golden hair.” Lizzies introduction to modelling was an extremely pleasant entrance into what could be a sleazy world. At the start of her modeling career, Lizzie was in the enviable position of being allowed to remain working at Mrs. Tozers millinery part-time, thereby ensuring herself a regular salary even if modelling did not …
