Dedicated to: All avid lovers of English criticism The present edition is an in-depth study of Arnold's 'The Study of Poetry'. The book has been designed to fulfil the need of students. The relevant critical material has been presented in a lucid and simple manner. While the treatment is comprehensive and elaborate it in no way precludes a study of the original text which is a sinequanon for a proper and genuine understanding. Arnold's poetry is subdued romanticism, the keynote of which is a tender wistful melancholy. But the form and style of his poems are classical, with occasional infusion of romantic richness in phrasing and single passages. His poetry has generally the qualities of good prose, where each word has weight and no word is superfluous. The Study of poetry', one of the most crucial critical essays by Arnold. The best poetry, he says, will be found to have a power of forming, sustaining and delighting us as nothing else can. If poetry is to fulfill its high destinies it must be 'a criticism of life under the conditions fixed for such a criticism by the laws of poetic truth and poetic beauty'. It means that the truth about life implicit in the poetic representation of it must be productive of delight by virtue of the charm infused into it by the art of poetry. Printed Pages: 126
