Hughes' novel about public school life in England during the 1830s, based on the his and his brother’s experiences, is perhaps the most influential of early British “school novels,” and the one which firmly established the genre that now includes such fictional schools as St. Trinians, Greyfriars, Mr. Chips' Brookfield, and even Hogwarts.
