Some brief overview of this book

A play of depth as well as dazzle, intensely moving as well as thought-provoking and funny. The Daily Telegraph An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form (or senior) boys in a British boys school are, as such boys will be, in pursuit of sex, sport, and a place at a good university, generally in that order. In all their efforts, they are helped and hindered, enlightened and bemused, by a maverick English teacher who seeks to broaden their horizons in sometimes undefined ways, and a young history teacher who questions the methods, as well as the aim, of their schooling.

In The History Boys, Alan Bennett evokes the special period and place that the sixth form represents in an English boys life. In doing so, he raiseswith gentle wit and pitch-perfect command of characternot only universal questions about the nature of history and how it is taught but also questions about the purpose of education today.
