How do you assess Matthew Arnold as a poet? - Suman Sharma - 11-02-2018

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!
