Poet, school inspector, civil servant and critic: this study examines the interrelationship of Arnold's different activities in tracing his evolution as a publicist until the publication of 'Culture and Anarchy' in 1869. In doing so Kate Campbell overturns the view of Arnoldian detachment by describing Arnold's promotion of his objectives of culture and an interventionist State and his implication in the new cultural politics of the 1860s.
