Poems and Balads and Atalanta in Calydon
Algernon Charles Swinburne
0140422501
Apr 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Flouting conventional Victorian attitudes about religion, politics, decorum and morality, Swinburne was a sensualist, alive to pleasure and to pain. He was a poet not of objects and things, or of word paintings, but of energies-of wind and water-and what Tennyson called wonderful rhythmic invention. Atalanta in Calydon is a drama in classical Greek form, with choruses that reveal Swinburne's mastery of melodious verse. His poems are opulent hymns to sensual love in all its aspects, to the loss of love, and to death.

Together, the works in this unique volume demonstrate Swinburne's mastery of form and the rich complexity of his poetry. This edition contains a preface, a commentary on the poems and two appendices, including a map of the places mentioned in Atalanta in Calydon.

Review
"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

Book Description
1882. This is Swinburne's version of the courtly legend and is considered by him to be his masterwork. He is one of the very few poets since the days of Raleigh and Sidney to come from the aristocracy. He is also well-known for his sexual proclivities and debauched lifestyle. In writing Tristram of Lyonesse, Swinburne found the perfect opportunity for a complete formulation of the unique synthesis of passion, pantheism, and the courtly love ethos upon which his most important philosophical intuitions were primarily founded.
