Algernon Charles Swinburne

21st-Century Oxford Authors

Edited by Francis O'Gorman

21st-Century Oxford Authors

  • The first rigorous scholarly edition of a substantial selection of the work of Algernon Charles Swinburne
  • A new, more complete, more challenging, but also more credible Swinburne than has ever been presented
  • Scholarly annotation draws on rich contemporary sources, manuscripts, and the diverse print culture of Swinburne's day as well as moving through ancient and modern languages that Swinburne wrote with fluency
  • Major critical introduction argues for Swinburne's consistency and his life-long complicated negotiation with his own poetic beginnings; places his politics and aesthetics as part of the same brilliantly consistent whole
  • Covers every significant genre in which Swinburne worked from his political argument to burlesque; from roundel to monologue to 'Greek' dramatic poetry; from critical prose to fiction
