290 / VICTORIAN POETRY "moderate" irregularities and variations, Arnold "follows the generous style of the Romantics." A handbook entitled Fifty Major Thinkers on Education: From Confucious to Dewey, edited by Joy A. Palmer (London: Routledge), includes an entry on Arnold which offers a largely positive assessment of his cultural and educational ideals and defends him against his critics today: "Perhaps the real problem with Arnold is that we have a culture in which the sort of ambitions he has for either the masses or the middle classes have been rendered simply inconceivable by the actions of politicians, educators and, most damning of all, by the very cultural élite whose position in public life, esteem and subsidy the thought of Arnold did so much to establish." MARJORIE STONE "Mrs. Ogilvy wanted to be with me, very kindly, but I would have nobody . . . Then, Robert was with me the whole time till the last five minutes, when Dr. Harding sent him away--he lay on the bed, & I nearly pulled his head off, as the pains came." The most significant contribution to EBB scholarship in a number of years is without doubt The Letters of Elizabeth Barrett
