An understanding of him is really more useful to us than an understanding of any other Englishman of the last century.” (Park Honan, Matthew Arnold, A Life, 1981, p.vii. “Park Honan (was) an American biographer whose prodigious research opened new vistas on the family history of some of Britain’s greatest literary figures (Robert Browning, 1974; Jane Austen, 1988; Shakespeare, 1998; Christopher Marlowe, 2005.) and reshaped modern views about their personalities.” – New York Times, Oct. 14, 2014).
