1875. The poet Swinburne was one of the very few, since the days of Raleigh and Sidney, to come from the aristocracy. He was also well-known for his sexual proclivities and debauched lifestyle. Atalanta (balanced) is a character from ancient Greek mythology. She was from Arcadia, a daughter of Iasus or Schoeneus and Clymene. The episode in her life relating to the Calydonian boar hunt is reprised by Swinburne in this verse tragedy. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
