||I would earth had thy body as fruit to eat
and no mouth but some serpent found thee sweet.
||"I love txilar..."
||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.

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.

||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.
