Read full description of the books:



Someone (I think it may have been Harold Bloom) referred to Matthew Arnold as the great amateur of Victorian poetry. Whoever said it, it fits. Arnold's verse is simple, unadorned and straightforward. This isn't a bad thing (far too many poets are pretentious and melodramatic), but the poetry never truly hits the high notes. Arnold's poetry also lives entirely in a single, melancholic key, which makes the whole of the works sort of blur together.

There are some good poems in here, though. I would especially point to the narrative poems, like "Balder Dead" and "The Church of Brou", as places where the plain style works with the conceit of the work.

The works that are set as meditations in a natural surrounding, like those about the author of Obermann, are much too reminiscent of a poor-man's Wordsworth.
