Atalanta in Calydon.

A TRAGEDY.

By ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE.

II

* * *

"He [Mr. Swinburne] is gifted with no small portion of the all-important Divine fire, without which no man can hope to achieve poetic success; he possesses considerable powers of description, a keen eye for natural scenery, and a copious vocabulary of rich yet simple English. * We must part from our author with cordial congratulations on the success with which he has achieved so difficult a task."-Times, June 6, 1865. "Exhibits a brilliancy of poetic diction, and a power of melody of a very high order."-Edinburgh Review, July, 1865.

Mr. Swinburne is a true poet."-Pall Mall Gazette, April 18, 1865. 'No one who reads 'Atalanta in Calydon' can doubt that its author is a poet-a poet of great grace, flexibility, and power of expression."Saturday Review, May 6, 1865.

"When it is said that Mr. Swinburne can write most delicate and harmonious blank verse-and his blank verse is more evenly unexceptionable than his lyrics-all is not said. His English is pure and extremely fluent; his rhythm is graceful and dignified; his lyrics are often melodiously flexible; but, more than this, he possesses an intense and incisive observation of the external aspects of things; his words chisel them out as clearly as in marble."-Fortnightly Review.

"Let our readers say whether they often meet with pictures lovelier in themselves or more truly Greek than those in the invocation to Artemis. Many strains equal to that in force, beauty, and rhythmical flow might be cited from the chorus. Those which set forth the brevity of man's life, and the darkness which enfolds it, though almost irreverent in their impeachment of the gods, are singularly fine in expression. We yet know not to what poet since Keats we could turn for a representation at once so large in its design and so graphic in its particulars; in the noble hyperbole of description, which raises the boar into the veritable scourge of Artemis, there is imagination of the highest kind.

A subject for many a painter to come-a grand word-picture, in which the influence of no contemporary can be traced. In the fervour and beauty of his best passages we find no reflection of any modern writer."— Athenæum, April 1, 1865.

"He [Mr. Swinburne] has produced a Dramatic Poem which abounds from the first page to the last in the finest constituents of poetry-in imagination, fancy, feeling, sentiment, passion, and knowledge of the human heart and soul, combined with a dominant mastery over every species of verse, from the stateliest pomp of epic metre to the fluent sweetness of song. Selecting for his subject one of the most pathetic of the ancient Greek legends, and adopting the grand old models of Greek tragedy, Mr. Swinburne has shown himself thoroughly imbued with antique spirit. He is evidently a good scholar, for he prefaces his poem with three pages of Greek verse, addressed to Walter Savage Landor. Association with such a man as Landor is in itself sufficient testimony to the excellence of a writer's scholarship; but mere scholarship alone would not have enabled Mr. Swinburne to write the dramatic poem now before us."-London Review, April 8, 1865.

"This is full of true poetry."-Spectator, April 15, 1865.

"Let us here, as space allows no more at present, call attention to the lately published 'Atalanta in Calydon' by Mr. Algernon Swinburne, as the most recent attempt in English literature, within the precincts of what we have called the 'higher muse.""-Quarterly Review, October, 1865.

Chastelard: a Tragedy.

By ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBUrne.

"Mr. Swinburne has planted a firm foot in the present and the future. He has earned a conspicuous name with singular quickness, and we trust that even greater triumphs lie before him in his onward path." -London Review, Dec. 9, 1865.

"Mr. Swinburne has written a tragedy, which not only is one of the most remarkable productions of modern days, but which in originality of conception and boldness of treatment has never been surpassed.”— Sunday Times, Dec. 3, 1865.

"That 'Chastelard' will be popular, and greatly add to the author's reputation, we cannot doubt."-The Reader, Dec. 2, 1865.

"True poetry is scarcer than gold, and more precious than rubies."— Cosmopolitan, Dec. 9, 1865.

Prefaced by a Memoir by the Rev. DERWENT Coleridge, M.A. "One of the most charming books for which any writer of our time has furnished material."-Saturday Review, Nov. 1, 1862.

"It was in the airy gambols of social wit and fancy that Winthrop Praed was so admirable."-London Review, Sept. 10, 1864.

"The remains of a brilliant man."-Athenæum, Sept. 10, 1864. "Nor do we think that the readers of Lord Houghton and Mackworth Praed will doubt that each has left more than one specimen of what will be handed down with that literature which is destined, at no very distant date, to be more than any other the world's literature-as genuine and delightful poetry."-Quarterly Review, October, 1865.
