From the cover: “The work of Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837-1909) fell into neglect after the First World War. The eccentricities and quirks of the poet’s character and a few anthology pieces are remembered; but the work of the novelist, critic, letter-writer, and — pre-eminently — poet is seldom read or rather, was seldom read until recent years when interest in his work has revived. This selection, judicious and comprehensive, stressing the mature work, contributes to the revaluation of the poet who so often vanishes under the weight of the Swinburne legend.”
