Elizabeth Barrett Moulton-Barrett (March 6, 1806 - June 1961) was born in Durham, England. Her father, Edward Moulton-Barrett, made most of his considerable fortune from Jamaican sugar plantations, and in 1809 he bought Hope End, a 500-acre estate near the Malvern Hills. She had eleven brothers and sisters. Although frail, she apparently had no health problems until 1821, when her doctor prescribed opium for a nervous disorder. She was thought to be addicted to it for the rest of her life. Barrett's treatment of social injustice (the slave trade in America, the oppression of the Italians by the Austrians, the labor of children in the mines and the mills of England, and the restrictions placed upon women) is manifested in many of her poems. "Aurora Leigh" her work of fiction, dealt with social injustice, but its subject was the subjugation of women to the dominating male. It also commented on the role of a woman as a woman and poet. Virginia Woolf argued that Aurora Leigh's heroine, "with her passionate interest in the social questions, her conflict as artist and woman, her longing for knowledge and freedom, is the true daughter of her age."
