Culture and Anarchy
Matthew Arnold
0300058667
Apr 1994
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This new edition of Matthew Arnold`s influential text is accompanied by four specially commissioned essays that analyze Arnold`s ideas from divergent political and literary perspectives and link them to contemporary concerns over the health of western culture in an increasingly multicultural society. The edition reprints for the first time in unaltered form the original 1869 text of Culture and Anarchy, providing valuable insight into Arnold`s authorial intent; it is supplemented by a useful glossary of names, term, and events and an introduction by Lipman that places Arnold in his time and discusses his initial reception and continuing importance today.

Culture and Anarchy
Matthew Arnold
0300058675
Apr 1994
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Without the challenging precedent of Culture and Anarchy, literary criticism and sociology in England and the United States would want both purpose and direction. Manifesting the special intelligence of a literary critic of original gifts, Culture and Anarchy is still a living classic. It is addressed to the flexible and the disinterested, to those who are not committed to the findings of their particular discipline, and it assumes in its reader a critical intelligence that will begin its work with the reader himself. Arnold employs a delicate and stringent irony in an examination of the society of his time: a rapidly expanding industrial society, just beginning to accustom itself to the changes in its institutions that the pace of its own development called for. Coming virtually at the end of the decade (1868) and...


Marvelous Mattie: How Margaret E. Knight Became an Inventor
Emily Arnold McCully
0374348103
February 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3–This story of the first woman to receive a U.S. patent makes an excellent introduction to inventors and Womens History Month. Knight used tools inherited from her father to design and build her inventions. As a child, she was always sketching one of her brainstorms for toys and kites for her brothers. She once designed a foot warmer for her mother. Although it was never patented, Knights design for a safer loom saved textile workers from injuries and death. Later as an adult, she fought in court and won the right to patent her most famous invention, a machine that would make paper bags. Matties story is told in a style that is not only easy to understand, but that is also a good read-aloud. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations capture the spirited inventor and support the text in...

Hardcover

From Library Journal
In the words of editor Lang, Arnold was possessed of a "voracious appetite for meeting and talking with everybody in the known world." By the age of 37, when these letters end, he had corresponded across three continents with such luminaries as the Tennysons and Wordsworths and Coleridges, Saint-Beuve, Merimee and Michelet, Gladstone, Harriett Martineau, Sand, Renan, and Froude. Arnold exhibited the same virtues in private as in public: a sunny disposition, a desire to be used, a consuming passion for the letters, and constant efforts to improve mind and character. A letter to his mother, dated May 16, 1855, demonstrates Arnold's ineradicable sense of fairness: he praises the controversial bluestocking Martineau for her independence of mind, though he could agree with her on nothing. The standard of editing in this...

A Gift Imprisoned
Ian Hamilton
0465044220
Mar 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Matthew Arnold, who wrote some of the most beautiful poetry of the Victorian period, with lyrics that are peculiarly appropriate to the alienated longeurs of modern existence, should, it seems, enjoy a higher reputation today. Yet he distrusted his own poetic genius and effectively stifled it after its early blossoming. He devoted his maturity instead to writing worthy but unexciting prose criticism. His motives, and the extraordinary tension between passion and repression in the poetry he did write, are both excellently explored in Ian Hamilton's critical biography. The title of the study comes from W.H. Auden's assessment of Arnold's career: "He thrust his gift in prison till it died." Hamilton outlines that prison--the Victorian upbringing, the unhappy love affair that was beyond the pale of 19th-century convention and...
