A Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne on literature, poets, and sentimentality

It is long since Mr. Carlyle expressed his opinion that if any poet or other literary creature could really be "killed off by one critique" or many, the sooner he was so despatched the better; a sentiment in which I for one humbly but heartily concur.

A Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne on beginning, death, endurance, gifts, grief, heaven, hell, life, love, madness, pain, pleasure, strength, tears, and time

Before the beginning of years There came to the making of man Time with a gift of tears, Grief with a glass that ran, Pleasure with pain for leaven, Summer with flowers that fell, Remembrance fallen from heaven, And Madness risen from hell, Strength without hands to smite, Love that endures for a breath; Night, the shadow of light, And Life, the shadow of death.
