Matthew Arnold, The Study of Poetry (1880). Cf. in SPW Clough’s Lecture VI, on Dryden; though he sees the period 1650-1700 as one ‘rather of the senses and the understanding than of the spirit and the imagination’, he believes, nevertheless that no later writer can ‘outdo’ Dryden ‘in vigour of mere writing, in manliness and force of style’ (pp. 105-6).

On the ‘otherness’ of sexual experience in Victorian England, see Steven Marcus, The Other Victorians (1966); the author of My Secret Life, which Marcus discusses in detail, who was in Naples at about the same time as Clough, writes in terms very different from those of the parts of Dipsychus
