Late in his career as professor, poet, and school inspector, Matthew Arnold was much occupied with literary criticism. In The Study of Poetry, Arnold argues for the endurance of good literature despite the trend toward the production of ?masses of a common sort of literature.? He insists that [c]urrency and supremacy are insured to it . . . by the instinct of self-preservation in humanity.?
