Sohrab and Rustum: With Other Poems
1906. Edited by W.P. Trent and W.T. Brewster. Arnold was a Victorian era poet and critic. He was the son of Thomas Arnold, the legendary headmaster of Rugby School who was celebrated in the novel Tom Brown's Schooldays. His poem Dover Beach (which is included in this selection) with its depiction of a nightmarish world from which the old religious verities have receded, is sometimes held up as an early, if not the first, example of the modern sensibility.
