To Cecil Lang

The University of Virginia Press dedicates this electronic edition of Cecil Y. Lang’s print edition of the letters of Matthew Arnold to that distinguished editor himself. Lang was a great supporter of the Press and co-founder, with Edgar Shannon, of the Press’s Victorian Literature and Culture series. The Arnold edition was the last of his three remarkable epistolary projects, the editions of the letters of Swinburne, Tennyson, and finally Arnold. Such was the excellence of these editions that Lang was called by his peers “the prince of editors.” His work set a new standard for scholarly excellence and learning.
