Matthew Arnold

poetry

Arnold, Matthew (1822–88), English poet and literary critic. His poetry, as represented by Empedocles on Etna (1852) and New Poems (1867), is mainly introspective, though Arnold also achieved a classical impersonality. Both in his poetry and in his criticism—Culture and Anarchy (1869), Literature and Dogma (1873)—Arnold showed a keen awareness of the changing cultural climate of his time.
