Mellissa Hill The Green -- "I love txilar..."
Steve Pope England -- A Forsaken Garden
Till the slow sea rise and sheer cliffs crumble,
Till terrace and meadows the deep gulfs drink,
Till the strength of the waves of the high tides humble
The fields that lessen, the rocks that shrink.
Here now in his triumph, where all things falter,
Stretch forth on the spoils that his own hand spread,
As a god self-slain on his own strange altar
Death lies dead.

J.B.D. Turley Nottingham, England -- if somebody has some of their own research compiled on A.C. Swinburne I would very much like to hear from you. Or if not, then your opinions on his work. I am a close ancestor of Algernon and have only really begun to find out about him, and so far I have been both amazed and suprised about what I have found. I believe he was my late grandfathers cousin on my mothers side. I am in the process of digging out a book my mother has on him but in the meantime any info would be greatly appreciated. You can contact me at jbd_turley [at] hotmail [dot] com.

Konstantine Getsadze London, UK -- Ave Atque V ale and many more from Poems and Ballads, as well as critical studies. In 1986 I published translations in Georgian language of Swinburne's "On the Aim and End of Poetry" and "A Study of Shakespeare". My University Diploma work was also dedicated to the study of Pre-raphaelite Movement and particularly to A. Ch. Swinburne.
