‘What Mignon might be in maturity and maternity’

  • Sara Coleridge


Mrs Browning is in weak health, and cannot remain in this foggy clime; they are to reside in Paris.1 She is little, hard-featured, with long dark ringlets, a pale face, and plaintive voice, something very impressive in her dark eyes and her brow. Her general aspect puts me in mind of Mignon, — what Mignon might be in maturity and maternity.2
