Tom Brown’s School Days is an 1857 novel by English lawyer, author, and politician Thomas Hughes. It takes place in the 1830s at a public school for young men, Rugby School, where Hughes himself studied between 1834 and 1842. Based loosely on Hughes’ real experiences at Rugby School, the novel follows Tom Brown, a student whom Hughes modeled after his brother, George. A bildungsroman, or coming-of-age novel, Tom Brown’s School Days deals with Brown’s development as an individual as he moves schools and homes, encounters bullies, deals with sickness, and makes friends. The novel has been adapted into several films and plays. It is succeeded by the novel Tom Brown at Oxford.
