One of the classics of English children's literature, and one of the earliest books written specifically for boys, this novel's steady popularity has given it an influence well beyond the upper middle-class world that it describes. It tells a story central to an understanding of Victorian life, but its freshness helps to distinguish it from the narrow schoolboy adventures that it later inspired.

About the Author

Thomas Hughes's novel Tom Brown's Schooldays is semi-autobiographical and is based on Hughes' own experiences at Rugby school, including his respect for his schoolmaster Dr Thomas Arnold, who is portrayed as the perfect teacher in Hughes' novel. Hughes wrote many more pieces of non-fiction than fiction, but is most well known for the stories of Tom Brown.
