Educated at Columbia College and Columbia Law School, Matthews graduated in 1873 and initially began teaching before turning to a literary career. He published his first book, The Theatres of Paris, in 1880 and followed with French Dramatists of the Nineteenth Century in 1881.

Matthews produced a number of plays, both on his own and in collaboration with other playwrights. He was an acclaimed critic and had a great influence on 20th century playwrights. He was a member of the American Academy of Arts & Letters and a president (1913) of the National Institute of Arts & Letters. In 1907, he was awarded the French Legion of Honor. His many works include Vignettes of Manhattan (1894), His Father's Son (1895), Outline in Local Color (1897), The Development of the Drama (1903), Moliere (1910), Vistas of New York (1912), Shakespeare as a Playwright (1913), A Book About the Theatre (1916), These Many Years (1917) and Playwrights on Playmaking (1923).
