-Letters, I, 17.Matthew Arnold is a charming but not an altogether conciliatory writer. If you disagree with him, he does not encourage you to believe that you may be in the right. When he was a middle-aged man, his favorite sister said to him that he was becoming as dogmatic as Ruskin. I told her, writes Arnold, good-humoredly reporting the incident to his mother, the difference was that Ruskin was dogmatic and wrong. This is in the true critical temper - gentle but firm and just a little provocative!About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
