Abstract

"A close study of Swinburne's works reveals the accuracy of Paul de Reul's perception that Swinburne "relit ses poetes, s'en impregne, les respire; mele a ses vers des reminiscences qui en font une musique de chambre, un plaisir de connaisseurs."1 In work after work by Swinburne, the alert reader will find subtly-harmonized images, phrases, and ideas that Swinburne assimilated from his wide reading among authors of many lands and times. Among these sources, as we would expect, Shelley has a continuing place. An example of one of the ways Swinburne adopts and reworks material from one of his life- long gods of poetry is apparent in Shelley's influence on Atalanta in Calydon.."
