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.

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.
