*MATTHEW ARNOLD [1822-1888] - as a literary critic Arnold held Goethe in the highest esteem, not only as a creative writer, but as one of Europe's most important thinkers. In his poem 'March 22 Death of Goethe', he mourned the passing of 'Europe's sage' : WHEN Goethe's death was told, we said: Sunk, then, is Europe's sagest head. Physician of the iron age, Goethe has done his pilgrimage.
