    Husband of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    He was a college dropout.
    He married a woman six years his senior.
    Until her death, his wife was more famous than him.
    His poems are filled with obscure references.
    Oscar Wilde described his poetry as 'a grotesque, misshapen thing.'
    By the time he died, he was a great success.
    He fell in love with Elizabeth Barrett Browning and married her even though she was a shut-in.
    He outlived his wife by 28 years.
    His poem 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came' inspired Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' series.
