Some Interesting Recollections
of England's Famous Mas
ter of Song. '
LAST .OF GREAT VICTORIANS
Ardent Student of Shakespeare in
Early Hays Instance of Mis
Algernon Charles Swinburne, the
poet who recently died at his hom.
The Pines, at Putney, uear London,
nnd upon whose shoulders nil England
expected Tennyson's mantle of poet
laureate to fall, was liorn on April. .".
1S.TT. so that he had just entered on
his seven ly-t bird year when death
came. He was descended from an an
cient family which runs back to the
days of Edward II. for Its pedigree.
He was the last leaf on the tree that
bore the group ef great Victorian poets.
The poet was the sou of the late Ad
miral Charles Henry Swinburne ar.il
Lady Jane Henrietta, who was the
daughter of tin' third Earl of Ash
buriihain. As a child be was extraor
dinarily precocious, and at the age
when children think only of fheir play
he was an ardent student of Shake
speare, taking, as bis parents often re
lated, a copy cf the plays of the Im
mortal bard to bed with him. Swin
burne's boyhood was spent at hbi par
ents' home In the Isle of WIglit. and
it was there that his great love for
the sea grew, for the poet knew and
loved the ri'.i in all its moods. His
two fa v rite recreations were swim
ming and cliff climbing, in both of
.vhlch be excelled.
In 1SIT-S be was educated bv a tutor
in the I.-Ie of Wight ami after a year's
rturiy was sent to Eton, where, how
ever, be led a lonely life.
As an instance of Swinburne's pe
culiarly winning personality, when Dr.
Ilawtrcy. the head master at Eton,
orce sent for him to remonstrate with
the boy on his love for poetry, the in
terview ended with the conversion vt
the master and a pronihe that his
pupil should have access to Dr. Ilaw
trey's own library and th: understand
ing that he should be allowed to take
away any of the works of the old Eng
lish dramatists he desired.
In PCf. Swinburne entered F.aliol
college, Oxford, but did not wait fer a
degree. I!y this time the mure was re
ceiving bis respectful attention, and
instead of waiting to graduate with
hi:, class be started off on a visit to
Florence wtth the late Walter Savage
Swinburne's birth was contempora
neous wlib the coronation of the late
Queen Victoria. It was In lSt.l that
Swinburne published bis first volume.
The Queen Mother" aud "Kosa mend."
and not a year has passed since then
that he has not contributed to the
world of Jetters onp or more books of
orose or noetrv.
SlroiiK lu I. Ikes and Dinliken.
Swinburne was strong iu his likes
and dislikes. He appeared to care lit
tle for the opinion or criticism of Lon
don and the world outside. He was a
devout worshiper at the shrine of Koli

cruised nil England to shake with
laughter when he brought a footstool
to a public banquet at which I'rown-
ing was the guest of honor and. sol

sat upon It-at the feet of the "mas
Another of Swinburne's escapades
occurred after a dinner at the London
Art club when he showed his disap
proval of bis fellow members by pil
ing up their hats on the floor of the
banquet ball nnd dancing on the mod
est headpieces. This made substantial
grist for the comic papers, and one
publication burlesqued the affair by
a travesty of Swinburne's own Imita
tions of the tireek form of drama. The
burlesque whs put on the boards, and
the club members, made up the cast.
Policemen who were called in to bridle
the poet's rage made up (he chorus.
Hats were sent flying about the stage,
and the memlters wailed:
As forests Willi ipmpests that wrestle
From the hatracks our hats are torn
Then I he chorus joined the tumult
The KiiKliphman's home Is his castle;
The Biiglishman'B hat I.s his crown.
And so the buriesque continued true
to the traditions of Aristophanes when
he amused the Athenians by ridiculing
Swinburne was frank and cordial
.vith his friends and, aside from being
a noted leader in conversation, was
fond of reading' his own poetry. He
was a bachelor. lie amassed a rare
collect iou of literary curios. The poet
never mingled much in general society,
as he was somewhat deaf. It was bis
habit to take long cross country jaunts,
nnd as he trudged along with down
cast head, seldom lifting his eyes
froui the ground, he was a welcome
Lord Bountiful to the children whom
he met on the way. He gave them
cakes and candies and was pleased
with their demonstrations. No mat
ter bow hard it rained or severe the
storm that overtook him While abroad
ou 'these excursions, he pulled down
more tightly that obj soft felt hat and
refused to carry an umbrella.
The most touching. memory of Swin
burne left to us is his great love for
children, and some of the most beauti
ful verses be wrote were devoted to
their praise, notably in "Herse." In
the final line of which ia the keynote
of .his whole Idea. "O child, what
news .rom heaven?"
Another peculiar feature of the poet's
habits was that lie never wore an over
