Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this series we look at individual poets who have shaped and influenced their craft and cement their place in our heritage. Matthew Arnold is rightly placed amongst the other greats of Victorian Poetry; Browning and Tennyson. The son of the founder of Rugby School he grew up to become a poet via a career as a school inspector. His own words best represent how he came to be so well regarded: 'My poems represent, on the whole, the main movement of mind of the last quarter of a century, and thus they will probably have their day as people become conscious to themselves of what that movement of mind is'

Literature in American education, an important timely statement by Howard Foster Lowry( Book )

3 editions published between 1943 and 1944 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic report on the relationship of literature and American education is an exposition of the importance of literature to the common man in a democratic society. No artificial distinction, the authors stress, is made between literature in the vernacular and literature in foreign languages. A defense of letters leads to a discussion of literature as the servant of the individual and of society. Other topics include how literature increases experience in human understanding in the quality of personal experiences, and in understanding the past. References to Hemingway, Sam Johnson, Donne, Jefferson, Arnold, Shakespeare, Montaigne, Milton, and Conant are often accompanied by selected commentary. The report attempts to liberate American education from the confines of pragmatism by illuminating intrinsic and eternal values of literary study. (Rl)
