By Yisrael Levin

concentrating on Algernon Charles Swinburne's poems on Apollo, Yisrael Levin demands a re-assessment of the poet's position in Victorian reports in gentle of his contributions to nineteenth-century highbrow background. Swinburne's Apollonian poetry, Levin argues, indicates the poet's energetic participation in late-Victorian debates in regards to the nature and serve as of religion in an age of adjusting non secular attitudes. Levin lines the shifts that came about in Swinburne's perception of Apollo over a interval of 4 a long time, from Swinburne's try and outline Apollo in its place to the Judeo-Christian deity to Swinburne's formation of a theological procedure revolving round Apollo and eventually to the ways that Swinburne's view of Apollo resulted in his agnostic view of spirituality. although Swinburne had misplaced his religion and rejected institutional faith via his early twenties, he retained a special curiosity in religious matters and paid cautious recognition to advancements in non secular inspiration. Levin persuasively indicates that Swinburne was once now not easily a poet provocateur who loved controversy yet did not offer legitimate cultural observation, yet was once quite a profound philosopher whose insights into nineteenth-century spirituality are expressed all through his Apollonian poetry.
