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.

Yes, it's a totally ridiculous study in national stereotypes, and a lot of Arnold's views are fairly appalling. But it's fun to read, you've gotta give him that.
