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.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a book whose absence in some form or other I have bemoaned for decades. The selection here is admirable, profoundly sophisticated: the proportions of verse and prose, inclusion of uncollected writings, and the certainty of scholarly and critical authority in the annotations—all these seem absolutely unexceptionable."—John Hollander
