Tom Brown's Schooldays.

Hughes, Thomas.

Picture of Tom Brown's Schooldays.
When Tom enters Rugby school he is a shy, homesick chap. But he is soon drawn into the life of the school, and develops robust, manly qualities. It is at once a school story and an argument for good government, moral education and the integrity of the individual.

A classic of Victorian literature, and one of the earliest books written specifically for boys, Tom Brown's Schooldays has long had an influence well beyond the middle-class, public school world that it describes. An active social reformer, Hughes wrote with a freshness, a lack of cant, and a kind, relaxed tolerance which keeps this novel refreshingly distinct from other schoolboy adventures. This edition is the only one available, and comes with the outstanding 1869 illustrations by Arthur Hughes. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
