9780199672240: Algernon Charles Swinburne: 21st-Century Oxford Authors

This is the first rigorous scholarly edition of a substantial selection of the work of Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837-1909) ever produced. Swinburne was one of the most brilliant and controversial poets of the nineteenth century: a republican, a scorner of established Christianity, a writer of sexual daring, a poet of loss and of love. Yet he is also the most misunderstood poet of the Victorian period. This new edition, with substantial editorial material, presents a new and convincing portrait of a man sharply different from what is usually said of him. Beginning with his unpublished "Ode to Mazzini" (1857) and ending with his last major critical work on The Age of Shakespeare (1908), this edition offers Swinburne in the round--a man of astonishing consistency whose formal innovations and critical penetration remain persistently engaging as well as provocative. A major introduction explores Swinburne's complicated reaction to the scandal of his first major collection, Poems and Ballads (1866); his life-long commitment to radical voices (Blake, Hugo, Landor, Shelley); his permanent hostility to tyranny; his sense of literature as a living form and of the heroic personality of the artist; his dazzling art criticism and adroit analysis of Renaissance and modern literature; his exceptional elegies for dead friends; his burlesques and richly atmospheric fiction and drama. This is 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.

About the Author:


Francis O'Gorman has written or edited 23 books, largely but not exclusively on English literature of the nineteenth century. Most recently he has published Worrying: A Literary and Cultural History (Bloomsbury, 2015) and The Cambridge Companion to John Ruskin (2016) together with editions for Oxford World's Classics of Gaskell's Sylvia's Lovers (2014) and Trollope's The Way We Live Now (2016). He has published widely on Victorian poetry and next year will see the launch of his edition of Edward Thomas's critical studies on Pater and Swinburne (OUP) and his Forgetfulness: How We Made the Modern Culture of Amnesia (Bloomsbury). Educated as an organ scholar at the University of Oxford, Francis O'Gorman is Saintsbury Professor of English Literature at the University of Edinburgh, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and an Honorary Professor at the Ruskin Centre at the University of Lancaster.
