Culture and anarchy by Matthew Arnold( Book )

251 editions published between 1869 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Matthew Arnold's famous series of essays, which were first published in book form under the title Culture and Anarchy in 1869, debate important questions about the nature of culture and society. Arnold seeks to find out what culture really is, what good it can do, and if it is really necessary. He contrasts culture, which he calls the study of perfection, with anarchy, the mood of unrest and uncertainty that pervaded mid-Victorian England." "This edition reproduces the original book version, revealing the immediate historical context and controversy of the piece. The introduction and notes broaden out the interpretative approach to Arnold's text, elaborating on the complexities of the religious context. The book also reinforces the continued importance of Arnold's ideas its influences in the face of the challenges of multi-culturalism and post-modernism."--Jacket

Stimulated by preparing his lectures, many of the earliest published in 1865 as Essays in Criticism (First Series), he turned increasingly to the vigorous and widely ranging polemical commentaries on culture, religion, and society which were to make him known at home and abroad as the foremost critic of his day.

64 editions published between 1875 and 2013 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the present moment two things about the Christian religion must surely be clear to anybody with eyes in his head.

In this 1861 collection of the lectures he delivered at Oxford the previous year, Arnold finds fault with contemporary translations of Homer by Pope, Chapman, Newman, and others, setting forth his own criteria for successful translation, among which is the adoption of hexameter verse, as well as respect for Homer's cardinal virtues and his grand style."

General Grant by Matthew Arnold( Book )

12 editions published between 1960 and 1995 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General Grant by Matthew Arnold with a Rejoinder by Mark Twain presents conflicting essays and cultures. Matthew Arnold's 1886 essay on Grant praised the general and his posthumously published Memoirs, but to many Americans its tone seemed patronizing of their hero and country. Grant's friend and personal benefactor, Mark Twain, delivered a caustic rejoinder to the Army and Navy Club of Connecticut in April 1887. Thus Arnold became a pet prejudice of Twain's and may have served as an inspiration for A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur?s Court. Arnold?s essay does not appear in his collected works. And in this volume, Twain's rejoinder is published in a correct text for the first time since the Hartford Courant printed his speech

Civilization in the United States; first and last impressions of America by Matthew Arnold( Book )

31 editions published between 1888 and 2011 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
