A classic of Victorian literature, '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 distinct from other schoolboy adventures.

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.
