Swinburne Posted on Wednesday, 26 October, 2011 by Frank Key Upon the first publication of his Poems And Ballads in 1866, one critic denounced Algernon Charles Swinburne as “an unclean fiery imp from the pit”.
He may have been an imp, but his hair is the stuff of heavenly dreams.
Oh you can see it can’t you? A very demon incarnate. Do you think he actually grew that moustache? Or is a a smudge of boot black in an attempt to make himself look like a grown-up?
Sullen abhorrence warnings …
Swinburne’s pout reminds me I haven’t watched ‘Young Frankenstein’ for years.
Or David Thewlis (the very epitome of an unclean fiery imp in Naked)
