Letters Of Matthew Arnold 1848-1888
(2 Volumes) In this penultimate volume of the Virginia edition of Matthew Arnold's letters, we see Arnold at his best. This period saw publication of Mixed Essays, Irish Essays, and Discourses in America as well as of several essays gathered later in Essays in Criticism, Second Series. The Poems of Wordsworth and The Poetry of Byron appeared, as did the controversial essay "The Study of Poetry," with its notorious and very readable touchstone theory.

(Crofts Classics) This thoughtful little volume features the full range of Arnold's poetry, including "Shakespeare," "Sohrab and Rustum," "Isolation," "To Marguerite," "To Marguerite--Continued," "Dover Beach," "The Future," "Thyrsis," and "Rugby Chapel." Edited by E. K. Brown, this selection is well supported by Arnold's preface to Poems (1853), an introduction, a list of principal dates in Arnold's life, and a bibliography.
