Algernon Charles Swinburne
Quotations



"To have read the greatest works of any great poet, to have beheld or heard the greatest works of any great painter or musician, is a possession added to the best things in life. "
 
"My aim was simply to present that story, not diluted and debased as it has been in our own time by other hands, but undefaced by improvement and undeformed by transformation, as it was known to the age of Dante."
- On Tristram of Lyonesse
