Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837-1909) is, with Browning and
Tennyson, one of the touchstone Victorian poets. He was a major
critic and an important fiction writer as well. Emerging out of the
Pre-Raphaelite circle, his bold and innovative work made him both a
celebrated and controversial writer at home and a figure of
international importance. Hugo, Baudelaire, and Mallarmé were among
his great admirers.
Jerome McGann and Charles L. Sligh now present a generous sampling
of Swinburne's poetry and prose. This wide-ranging collection
satisfies a long need for a comprehensive selection of Swinburne's
work. It is accompanied by learned and critically incisive
commentaries and notes.
