1919. Edited by Edmund Gosse and Thomas James Wise; The poet Swinburne is one of the very few, since the days of Raleigh and Sidney, to come from the aristocracy. He was also well-known for his sexual proclivities and debauched lifestyle. Of his many collections of verse, the first book of Poems and Ballads is the most important, containing many of his best (and some of his most sensational) poems, such as The Garden of Rosperine, Dolores and The Triumph of Time. He produced studies of many writers, including Lord Byron, William Blake, Victor Hugo and Charles Baudelaire, but it was his work on Shakespeare and his contemporaries which became his most influential criticism. Contents: Christopher Marlowe in Relation to Greene, Peele, and Lodge; George Chapman; The Earlier Plays of Beaumont and Fletcher; Philip Massinger; John Day; Robert Davenport; Thomas Nabbes; Richard Brome; and James Shirley.
