Lots of information here, and the author doesn't shy away from the more controversial aspects of the poet's life. Two criticisms, however: First, the author jumps around, A LOT, making it sometimes hard to keep up chronologically with what is going on, and when. Second, I couldn't help but wonder if Thomas actually likes A.C. Swinburne. The timbre of the book tends to lean somewhat towards condescension at times, perhaps even derision.
