    Themes. The speaker of the poem is the voice of a besotted lover, faced with, and lamenting, Swinburne's particular ruthless and grim representation of the sacred feminine, embodied here as the Lady of these respects, the poem shares its central themes with "Satia te Sanguine" from the same collection, as does it similarly share its sadomasochistic imagery with that . Swinburnes take on the Tristan and Iseult legend, Tristram of Lynonesse should be read by any lover of the Arthurian myth. And their four lips became one burning mouth. And while Swinburne is not I think there is a reason why I never read more Swinburne poetry than I did while in college and getting my Master’s/5.

      Swinburne's poetic relationship with the spasmodic school of poetry is the focus of Kirstie Blair's "Swinburne's Spasms: Poems and Ballads and the 'Spasmodic School'" ( no.2 []: ). The sensationalist tone of Swinburne's early poetry, Blair argues, cannot be dissociated from the works of poets such as Sydney Thompson Dobell.   The first pages of the book's are given up to Swinburne's previously published poetry. In addition to the complete Atalanta and Tristram previously mentioned, there are eighteen (out of sixty-two) of Poems and Ballads (), nine from the second series, and two from the third series.

    London - Chatto and Windus, Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. A attractive six volumeset of The Poems of Algernon Charles Swinburne. A towering figure of Nineteenth Century Literature, Swinburne's literary work earned him nominations for the Nobel Prize in Literature on three seperate occasions. It is indestructible. None of the obvious complaints that were or might have been brought to bear upon the first Poems and Ballads holds good. The poetry is not morbid, it is not erotic, it is not destructive. These are adjectives which can be applied to the material, the human feelings, which in Swinburne’s case do not exist.
