Abstract

Matthew Arnold's Culture and Anarchy questions and discusses the opinions of politicians, clergy, and educators in a unique rhetorical style. This thesis examines Arnold's rhetorical style by examining the specific strategies that Arnold used to create a special relationship with the reader. Arnold's use of these strategies and his rhetorical method are traced back to his knowledge of German literature, specifically to Goethe, and the process through which he wrote Culture and Anarchy.
