Matthew Arnold

$ 1.99

The Victorian English poet and essayist Matthew Arnold was the archetypal sage writer, noted for his classical attacks on the tastes and manners of his time. His poetry is characterised by its classically poised, serene and grand style, which is often intimate, personal, full of romantic regret and nostalgic in tone. Arnold’s incisive essays chastised and instructed the reader on contemporary social issues, fashioning himself as the apostle of “culture” in his landmark work ‘Culture and Anarchy’. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents the complete poetical works of Matthew Arnold, with beautiful illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 2)
