Tom Brown´s Schooldays

Anotace

Lively and mischievous, idle and brave, Tom Brown is both the typical boy of his time and the perennial hero celebrated by authors as diverse as Henry Fielding (in Tom Jones) and Alec Waugh (in The Loom of Youth). The book describes Toms time at Rugby School from his first football match, through his troubled adolescence when he is savagely bullied by the unspeakable Flashman, to his departure for a wider world as a confident young man. This classic tale of a boys schooldays under the benevolent eye of the renowned Dr Arnold still retains the appeal for which it was acclaimed on its first publication in 1857. In its less wellknown sequel, Tom Brown at Oxford, we follow our hero to St Ambroses College, and, in sharing his undergraduate experiences, gain a vivid impression of university life in the mid nineteenth century.
