Book description
In his introduction to this important reference work, Robert Fitzpatrick traces the origins of the boys' school story back to the eighteenth century and its development and reception over the last 200 years. The contribution of women writers to the boys' school story is examined and popular topics explored. With over 500 entries, this encyclopaedia is the most comprehensive survey to date of this popular and highly collectable genre.
