Algernon Charles Swinburne - Chasteland, a Tragedy

Algernon Charles Swinburne - Chasteland, a Tragedy
Algernon Charles Swinburne was born on April 5th, 1837, in London, into a wealthy Northumbrian family. He was educated at Eton and at Balliol College, Oxford, but did not complete a degree. In 1860 Swinburne published two verse dramas but achieved his first literary success in 1865 with Atalanta in Calydon, written in the form of classical Greek tragedy. The following year "Poems and Ballads" brought him instant notoriety. He was now identified with "indecent" themes and the precept of art for art's sake. Although he produced much after this success in general his popularity and critical reputation declined. The most important qualities of Swinburne's work are an intense lyricism, his intricately extended and evocative imagery, metrical virtuosity, rich use of assonance and alliteration, and bold, complex rhythms. Swinburne's physical appearance was small, frail, and plagued by several other oddities of physique and temperament. Throughout the 1860s and 1870s he drank excessively and was prone to accidents that often left him bruised, bloody, or unconscious. Until his forties he suffered intermittent physical collapses that necessitated removal to his parents' home while he recovered. Throughout his career Swinburne also published literary criticism of great worth. His deep knowledge of world literatures contributed to a critical style rich in quotation, allusion, and comparison. He is particularly noted for discerning studies of Elizabethan dramatists and of many English and French poets and novelists. As well he was a noted essayist and wrote two novels. In 1879, Swinburne's friend and literary agent, Theodore Watts-Dunton, intervened during a time when Swinburne was dangerously ill. Watts-Dunton isolated Swinburne at a suburban home in Putney and gradually weaned him from alcohol, former companions and many other habits as well. Much of his poetry in this period may be inferior but some individual poems are exceptional; "By the North Sea," "Evening on the Broads," "A Nympholept," "The Lake of Gaube," and "Neap-Tide." Swinburne lived another thirty years with Watts-Dunton. He denied Swinburne's friends access to him, controlled the poet's money, and restricted his activities. It is often quoted that 'he saved the man but killed the poet'. Algernon Charles Swinburne died on April 10th, 1909 at the age of seventy-two.

Our Lady of Pain
Our Lady of Pain is the first selection of Swinburne's poetry to focus precisely on what his early readers found most objectionable: erotic passion, in both its 'normal' and 'perverse' varieties. Swinburne's treatment of physical passion, and the varieties of passion about which he chose to write, retain the power to shock.

Selected Verse

release date: Jul 01, 2015
Selected Verse
Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837-1909) was one of English poetry's truly distinctive stylists, a supreme technician, with an unbelievable mastery over sound (Edith Sitwell). He was one of the major poets of the Victorian era, and almost certainly the most provocative. His pagan sensualism and masochistic fantasies thrilled and outraged his readers, while the musical textures of his verse both delighted and unsettled. In this new anthology of his finest verse, Swinburne's most celebrated collection, the Poems and Ballads of 1866, is represented much more fully than in earlier selections, and ample extracts are given from his later masterpiece, Tristram of Lyonesse (1882). Also included are generous passages from the best of Swinburne's five-act tragedies, which have not been reprinted for nearly a century. Above all, this book is designed to make Swinburne, once again, a poet to be read widely for pleasure. No one else has made such music in English', wrote Ezra Pound; The splendid lines mount up in one's memory and overwhelm any minute restrictions of one's praise'.

The Flogging-Block an Heroic Poem in a Prologue and Twelve Eclogues by Algernon Charles Swinburne. A Transcription of the Original Holograph Manuscript Written at Intervals Between 1862 And 1881

The Flogging-Block an Heroic Poem in a Prologue and Twelve Eclogues by Algernon Charles Swinburne. A Transcription of the Original Holograph Manuscript Written at Intervals Between 1862 And 1881
The Flogging-Block is Victorian poet Algernon Charles Swinburne's mock-heroic tribute to corporal punishment. In a prologue and twelve eclogues, Swinburne describes, with considerable vigour and black humour, the torment, anguish, and delights of the scholastic rod from the perspectives of beaten school boys, despotic masters, and joyous witnesses. It does not contain explicit sexual content. This edition of The Flogging-Block is a page by page transcription of the original manuscript, which is owned by the British Library. It does not reproduce Simeon Solomon's illustrations. A master of lyric, rhythm, and rhyme, Swinburne was one of the most brilliant poets of the Victorian era. He was also a life-long enthusiast of flagellation, weaving flagellant scenes and motifs into his poems, letters, novels, and dramatic works. He composed The Flogging-Block, which remained unpublished until now, between 1862 and 1881.
