About this title


Professor Terence CopleyÆs new biography of Thomas Arnold combines a study of his life with an examination of ArnoldÆs influence as an educator, a theologian and a churchman. Arnold was only a Victorian for five years (he died in 1842) but he has been remembered as a major figure of the age, not least because Lytton Strachey chose him as one of his objects of ridicule and pillory in Eminent Victorians (1918).He stands as a monument to the development of the 19th-century public school system whose influence spread far beyond BritainÆs upper-class. Arnold was the celebrated headmaster of Rugby School and HughesÆs Tom BrownÆs Schooldays (1857) fixed him in the public imagination.Copley assesses both the uncritical Victorian versions of ArnoldÆs life--including Hughes and Dean StanleyÆs original Life--and the sneering assessment of his influence, perpetuated by Strachey, to provide the first rounded portrait of Arnold. In conclusion Copley explores the possible legacy that this great but neglected figure has left to our age.
