Waiting for the "Liberal Saints" An Assessment of Mathew Arnold's last Political Essays, 1878 – 1887

Auther : Muhsin J. Al-Musawi

The purpose of this essay is to study Amold's attitude to the "Liberals of the Nadir" as demonstrated by his writings of 1878-1887. Ignoring Lowes real liberal ideal, contemporary liberals fell vicitims to class interests, a situation which led Arnold to illustrate the disinterestedness of liberty. Though not a politician in action, he found himself Indulging in the political controversies of the time, especially when attempting to utilize the "Reasonable Liberals" for the benefit of his broad concept of "Culture". It was his persistent fear of anarchy that brought him in terms with idealist liberals as distinct from the mainstream of middle-class liberalism which foreshadowed the total triumph of chaos, according to him since the late sixties.
