Posthumously published in 1888, Matthew Arnold’s previously collected essays on poetry and poets proved, if ever there was a doubt, Arnold’s immense critical gift. His focused, honest style eludes the follies of bias. Included here are the essays, “The Study of Poetry,” “Milton,” “Thomas Gray,” “John Keats,” “Wordsworth,” “Byron,” and “Shelley,” among others.
