The Yale Edition of The Swinburne Letters: Volume 2, 1869-1875
Algernon Charles Swinburne was first and last a poet, but in his letters he shows an enormous, a consuming, interest in a great variety of subjects—art, music, drama, archaeology, law, crime; some of his finest letters were politically inspired. At his epistolary best, his style is exceptionally forceful, and some of the specimens included here are surpassed only by the very best in the language.
