He's a fine poet albeit an acquired taste. It's great that you can buy a volume of his completed works rather than having to see two works in a Norton's anthology and then... nothing...
I doubt that he'll ever again be a crowd favorite. If you've gotten to this review, buy this book. He's awesome.
That said. The actual contents of the book is superb. The poetry is elaborate yet fast paced. A lot of biblical references, but not-surprisingly-in a religious sense. That may be why it was so controversial at the time of its release.
I highly recommend Swinburne, but not this particular book.
author of "Poems From My Bleeding Heart"
