Algernon Charles Swinburne, Kenneth Haynes (EDT), Kenneth Haynes

Poems and Ballads


This volume brings together Swinburne's major poetic works, "Atalanta in Calydon" (1865) and "Poems and Ballads" (1866). "Atalanta in Calydon" is a drama in classical Greek form, which revealed Swinburne's metrical skills and brought him celebrity. "Poems and Ballads" brought him notoriety and demonstrates his preoccupation with de Sade, masochism, and femmes fatales.

Also reproduced here is 'Notes on Poems and Reviews', a pamphlet Swinburne published in 1866 in response to hostile reviews of "Poems and Ballads".
