Summary
"Tom Arnold was the son of the celebrated headmaster of Rugby, and younger brother of Matthew. A self-styled 'wanderer', as well as a scholar and teacher, after a brilliant start at Oxford he roved the world to colonial New Zealand, Tasmania, Dublin, back to Oxford, and once more to Dublin, where he died in 1900. His spiritual journeying took him into the Catholic Church, then out of it for some years, and finally back again. Attractive, earnest, clever, but also habitually vacillating and forever short of funds, he lacked his father's and brother's powerful brands of intellectual distinction. Yet his life is a fascinating one, and his response to his times individual and unexpected." "Many eminent Victorians whose lives he touched are illuminated by this engaging biography: notably his poet brother, and his dearest friend, Arthur Hugh Clough; but also John Henry Newman, Mark Pattison, Lewis Carroll, Benjamin Jowett. In his early years he knew Wordsworth, at the end of his life Hopkins (and even encountered James Joyce's undergraduate work, if not the young man himself). Bernard Bergonzi writes with shrewd affection for his subject, and a deep knowledge of the age in which Tom Arnold pursued his physical and spiritual wanderings."--BOOK JACKET
