        Subject: New Edition of The Swinburne Project

I am pleased to announce a new edition of the online Algernon Charles 
Swinburne Project  http://www.swinburneproject.org/ , with a new design, 
architecture, and most importantly, a great deal of new content. This new 
edition includes over 440 documents (poems, essays, reviews, visualizations,

Some highlights of the new edition include:

* The complete contents of the six-volume collected _Poems_  
  (London: Chatto and Windus, 1904), with facsimile page images.
* Swinburne's one finished novel, _Love's Cross-Currents_ 
  (London: Chatto and Windus, 1905), with facsimile page images.
* A contemporary review from the _John Bull_ magazine of Swinburne's 
  _The Queen-Mother and Rosamond_, his first published volume. The review is 
  noteworthy in that it seems to have escaped the attention of earlier 
  Swinburne scholarship. For example, the unsigned _John Bull_ review is not 
  mentioned in Clyde K. Hyder's _Algernon Swinburne: The Critical Heritage_ 
  (1970) or Kirk H. Beetz's _Algernon Charles Swinburne: A Bibliography of 
	Secondary Works, 1861-1980_ (1982).

* A brief Introduction to Swinburne's life and work.

* An updated Chronology implemented as an interactive timeline and in 
  a more conventional tabular view.

* A significantly expanded version of Terry Meyers' “Supplementary 
  Material” to his _Uncollected Letters of Algernon Charles 
  Swinburne_, 3 vols. (London: Pickering and Chatto, 2005). The 
  revised material includes a number of previously unpublished letters
  and an illustrated essay on the controversy surrounding Swinburne's 

* “Swinburne's Study,” a new area of the project that features a 
  collection of digital encounters with the edited and encoded text 
  corpus of the Swinburne Project: visualizations, image and text 
  analysis tools, and creative works.

* Expanded “Project Information” documentation.

* Downloads of XML and XSLT code from the Project.

* A new site design and information architecture.
