Ahh, Ruotong, You and Flora
Seem to have a great love for Poetry. So I will share something with you.|
In some of the American Indian cultures, the poet is called the Namer of Names. And in Western Poetry, since the time of the Greeks, the names of Poets are important. Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, W. B. Yeats, Bob Dylan, these are names that the poets call themselves, and in the west it is important, to some of us poets, to learn their names and respect them.
So, Elizabeth Barrett Browning is her name. In the west, we don't call her Mrs., or use only her 2 names, she is, historically and culturally, Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
Sometimes, historians or English Teachers will use "real names", like Walter Whitman, or R. L. Frost, or Robert Zimmerman (Bob Dylan). But the writers and poets who choose their own names deserve them when discussed.
