Matthew Arnold (1822-1888), English poet and critic, 'was considered a quintessential Victorian writer in his philosophy, his taste, and his manner of expression' (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature). His most famous poems are 'The Scholar-Gipsy,' 'Stanzas from the Grande Chartreuse,' 'Thyrsis,' an elegy written on the death of Arnold’s friend Arthur Hugh Clough, 'which Swinburne adjudged, after Milton’s ‘Lycidas’ and Shelley’s ‘Adonais,’ the finest elegy in the English language; and ‘Dover Beach,’ perhaps his best-known poem, which uses the image of the sea as a metaphor for the Sea of Faith, ebbing away from the naked shores of the world' (Benét’s Reader’s Encyclopedia).
