Algernon Charles Swinburne is in my opion the finest english Elizabethian Age Poet. He wrote so much of such a consistently high standard. If you like classical poetry, you owe it to yourself to find this book. Sadly most books with his poetry in it are in Library bindings, and; therefore, unaffordable for most individuals. Find his poetry, and he will create a new world for you. I can't say enough good things about this writer. His understanding of human feelings, and our innate kinship with myticism and shadows are clearly present in his early works. In addition, his meter formats are among the most intense and intricate I have ever read. If you claim to enjoy poetry. Do yourself a favor and find Swinburne. Here is a sample from his work "The Garden of Proserpine"
"I am tired of tears and laughter,/ And men that laugh and weep;/ Of what may come hereafter/ For men that sow to reap: I am weary of days and hours,/ Blown buds of barren flowers,/ Desires and dreams and powers/ And everything but sleep."

Denounced by a Victiorian critic as a "libidinous laureate of a pack of satyrs", Swinburne's oeuvre includes forays into the realms of political, moral and spiritual revolt, themes which ran counter to the bourgeois solidity of the Victorian era. Three of his best works which illustrate this are "Anactoria", which includes the memorable line: "Exceeding pleasure in superflux of pain", an illustration of the sadistic dimension of the lesbian protagonists' relationship, "Dolores" and "Hertha" which places Swinburne in the camp of mystical transcendentalism. This collection is a must for those who want to be acquainted with one of the greatest poets in the English language, a virtuoso of metrical composition, as well as a lyric champion of vice.
