Algernon Swinburne (Everyman Poetry Library). The musicality is interesting, and Swinburne’s poems are very atmospheric. But I don’t think they’re beautiful in any way, so I can’t really get over the general Antique, creepy, rapey feeling.

Algernon Swinburne (Everyman Poetry Library). 0460878719 (ISBN13: 9780460878715). And the more I read about Swinburne himself, the more I want to repeat: TOO WEIRD. But seriously, it does get boring in the end, the constant flaming lips and other panting chests. Maybe I sh TOO WEIRD.

Algernon Charles Swinburne was born on April 5th, 1837, in London, into a wealthy Northumbrian family. He was educated at Eton and at Balliol College, Oxford, but did not complete a degree. In 1860 Swinburne published two verse dramas but achieved his first literary success in 1865 with Atalanta in Calydon, written in the form of classical Greek tragedy. The most important qualities of Swinburne's work are an intense lyricism, his intricately extended and evocative imagery, metrical virtuosity, rich use of assonance and alliteration, and bold, complex rhythms. Swinburne's physical appearance was small, frail, and plagued by several other oddities of physique and temperament.

Although individual volumes of Swinburne's poetry were occasionally well .

Although individual volumes of Swinburne's poetry were occasionally well received, in general his popularity and critical reputation declined following the initial sensation of Poems and Ballads. During Swinburne's lifetime, critics considered Poems and Ballads his finest as well as his most characteristic poetic achievement; subsequent poetry and work in other genres was often disregarded.

Poem by Algernon Charles Swinburne. The burden of fair women. Life and lust Forsake thee, and the face of thy delight; And underfoot the heavy hour strews dust, And overhead strange weathers burn and bite; And where the red was, lo the bloodless white, And where the truth was, the likeness of a liar, And where the day was, the likeness of the night; This is the end of every man's desire.

Algernon Charles Swinburne, 1837–1909, English poet and critic. After attending Eton (1849–53) and Oxford (1856–60) he settled in London on an allowance from his father. His first published volume, containing two blank verse plays entitled The Queen Mother and Rosamond (1860), attracted little attention, but Atalanta in Calydon (1865), a poetic drama modeled on Greek tragedy, brought him fame.

Comments to eBook Algernon Swinburne Eman Poet Lib #39 (Everyman Poetry)
Yggfyn
I have made prior attempts to read the poetry of Swinburne and had been put off because his poems are longer and wordier than what I prefer and even though I read a lot of poetry this can be a downer. But I did recognize that there were excellent poems by Swinburne and ones that are well worth reading. This relatively small volume serves as an excellent introduction to Swinburne and it appears to me that the selected poems are pretty representative of his output.
