Swinburne Project update

[The following is posted on behalf of John Walsh]

I am pleased to announce a new edition of the online Algernon Charles
Swinburne Project <>, with a new design,
architecture, and most importantly, a great deal of new content. This new
edition includes over 440 documents (poems, essays, reviews, visualizations,

Some highlights of the new edition include:

* The complete contents of the six-volume collected _Poems_
(London: Chatto and Windus, 1904), with facsimile page images.

* Swinburne’s one finished novel, _Love’s Cross-Currents_
(London: Chatto and Windus, 1905), with facsimile page images.

* A contemporary review from the _John Bull_ magazine of Swinburne’s
_The Queen-Mother and Rosamond_, his first published volume. The review is
noteworthy in that it seems to have escaped the attention of earlier
Swinburne scholarship. For example, the unsigned _John Bull_ review is not
mentioned in Clyde K. Hyder’s _Algernon Swinburne: The Critical Heritage_
(1970) or Kirk H. Beetz’s _Algernon Charles Swinburne: A Bibliography of
Secondary Works, 1861-1980_ (1982).

* A brief Introduction to Swinburne’s life and work.

* An updated Chronology implemented as an interactive timeline and in
a more conventional tabular view.

* A significantly expanded version of Terry Meyers’ “Supplementary
Material” to his _Uncollected Letters of Algernon Charles
Swinburne_, 3 vols. (London: Pickering and Chatto, 2005). The
revised material includes a number of previously unpublished letters
and an illustrated essay on the controversy surrounding Swinburne’s

* “Swinburne’s Study,” a new area of the project that features a
collection of digital encounters with the edited and encoded text
corpus of the Swinburne Project: visualizations, image and text
analysis tools, and creative works.

* Expanded “Project Information” documentation.

* Downloads of XML and XSLT code from the Project.

* A new site design and information architecture.
