I wrote my seminar paper on this series of essays last semester. I like Matthew Arnold. I think he's got a nice sense of humor. I like this series of essays, too. I'm not sure I completely agree with his structural analysis of Celtic literature, but it did give me a new way to look at it.
Matthew Arnold was an English poet, sage writer and cultural critic who worked as an inspector of schools. He was the son of Thomas Arnold, the famed headmaster of Rugby School, and brother to Tom Arnold, literary professor, and William Delafield Arnold, novelist and colonial administrator.More about Matthew Arnold...
