Civilization in the United States (Barnes & Noble Digital Library): First and Last Impressions of America

by Matthew Arnold
 

See All Formats & Editions



Arnold toured America, the land where his daughter had married and settled, twice before publishing this 1888 controversial work. It sets forth Arnold's often harsh criticisms of American civilization—or, rather, the lack thereof, for he makes no secret of finding the cultural climate of the United States backward or even primitive.
