Harry Clarke, spine illustration for The Selected Poems of Swinburne (1928)
April 9, 2009 is the hundredth anniversary of the death of Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837 - 1909). In February, I featured Gilbert Alter-Gilbert's massive, 4-part "Lions of Literature" column on Swinburne.
We illustrated the column with Harry Clarke's fantastic but little-seen illustrations, courtesy of Golden Age Comic Book Stories.
Visit the Swinburne Project to sample the poet's work.
