Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Apostle of Sweetness and Light be studied simply because he is the Apostle of Culture, he will be most helpful to the young people of this practical age, this age in which the tendency is toward commercialism. But add to this the strong points of the authors style, the delicacy of touch, the clear incisive analysis, the energy of purpose with the gentle man behind it all, the constant endeavor to stimulate to something higher and nobler, and the value of such study cannot be estimated. In compiling this little book it has been necessary to consider the compass of the volume as well as the essays which will most attract young readers and at the same time show Matthew Arnold at his best. The cross-references are a feature of the notes, and will, it is hoped, both elucidate the text and introduce many authors to the students notice. SUSAN S. SHERIDAN. NEW HAVEN, CONN., Jan. 1, 1896.
