“Nothing has raised more questioning among my critics than these words – noble, the grand style.

……I think it will be found that the grand style arises in poetry, when a noble nature, poetically gifted, treats with simplicity or with severity a serious subject.”

(Matthew Arnold, 1822 – 1888)

John Lentell

25th December, 1969
