Matthew Arnold (1822-1888)

Matthew Arnold, poet and critic, began winning prizes for his poetry as a schoolboy. He attended Balliol College at Oxford and in 1845 was elected Fellow of Oriel College at the University. Arnold's literary career began in 1849, when he published "The Strayed Reveller." In 1853 he began to publish his literary criticism. From 1857-67 Arnold was Professor of Poetry at Oxford, generating his famous lectures, essays, and poetry. Gladstone awarded him a yearly pension in 1883, after which Arnold traveled extensively in Europe and the U.S. Through the years it is his literary criticism that has made his reputation.
