Summary
"Matthew Arnold is a pivotal figure in the literature of the nineteenth century; his poems are still widely read and his social criticism continues to influence contemporary scholars. This comprehensive biography, the first in many years, brings the surprisingly modern figure of Arnold back to life, firmly establishing him as one of the most eminent Victorian writers." "Through years of research and a number of previously untouched sources, Nicholas Murray presents a fully rounded biography of one of literature's greatest figures. Here, readers will see Matthew Arnold as few have witnessed him before: as a masterful writer, certainly, but also as a devoted family man and a powerful critic of Victorian materialism. With sixteen pages of rare black and white photographs, A Life of Matthew Arnold is a fascinating look at one of England's most intriguing and influential poets."
