Culture and Anarchy

The men of culture are the true apostles of equality. Matthew Arnold’s famous series of essays, debate important questions about the nature of culture and society that are as relevant now as they have ever been. Arnold seeks to find out ‘what culture really is, what good it can do, what is our own special need of it’ in an age of rapid social change and increasing mechanization. He contrasts culture, ‘the study of perfection’, with anarchy, the mood of unrest and uncertainty that pervaded mid-Victorian England.
