Culture and Anarchy

Matthew Arnold
Edited by Jane Garnett

Oxford World's Classics

  • In Culture and Anarchy Matthew Arnold famously debates the value of culture in Victorian England, at a time of rapid social change, and his ideas about education and the state are as relevant today as ever.
  • Use the original book version of 1869, enabling readers to make sense of the immediate historical context, and to understand what was controversial.
  • Introduction and notes broaden out the interpretative approaches to Arnold's text, especially by elaborating on the complexities of the religious context.
  • The edition reinforces the case for continued pertinence of Arnold's ideas in the face of the challenges of multi-culturalism and post-modernism.
