  How do you assess Matthew Arnold as a poet?
Posted by: Suman Sharma - 11-02-2018, 12:35 PM - Forum: Victorian Period literature (1837–1901) - No Replies

I am a huge fan of Arnold's poetry. However, as in the case of Pope, critics do admire Matthew Arnold but not for his poetry. They admire him for his prose which was amazing, of course. However, the poetry of Matthew Arnold was also noteworthy and pleasant as well as intellectual. How do you see him as a poet? Please start this discussion because I would love to have one!

Hello admin and everyone and also the experts over here. I would like a simplified view of yours on the literary theory called Structuralism. How do you define it? How do you explain it? I would love to have a quick understanding of the Structuralism theory.

  Poetry of Alexander Pope - was he a 2nd rank poet?
Posted by: Suman Sharma - 11-02-2018, 12:29 PM - Forum: 18th Century Literature - No Replies

I have read this on many occasions that Alexander Pope was a second rank poet. How far do you agree with this claim? Many intellectuals and commentators even disagree when it comes to recognising Pope as a poet. I am a little perplexed about it. I would love the views of members on this.
