Poet, education reformer, social theorist and passionate critic of Victorian England, Matthew Arnold condemned an industrial society in 'bondage to machinery' and argued instead that the wonder and joy of culture - in particular the 'sweetness and light' of classical civilization - were essential to human life.

About the Author

Matthew Arnold (1822-88) was the son of the famous Dr Thomas Arnold, headmaster of Rugby School. After studying at Oxford, Arnold spent several years travelling and writing experimental verse. Having established his reputation with his poetry, Arnold went on to writing prose. His influence as a social and literary critic and a controversial thinker on religious and educational issues has been felt throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.
