Death by Horace . . . the tear-stained school stories of Frederic W. Farrar
Harry Potter. The anxiety and guilt lead him to the brink of suicide, before the ghost of his dead mother knocks the gun out of his hand. Melodramatic, perhaps, but reflective of the real stresses of education, where there was often much at stake. That heathenish language. Through Walter, Farrar shows the perils of a one-size fits all education: Walter, an intelligent student is cramped by the education on offer.
Following a walk up a nearby mountain, during which the boys are caught in a sudden storm, Dubbs catches a fever. And as he lies on his sickbed, he deliriously tries to memorize his Horace. Eventually Dubbs dies, a tragic casualty of a flawed education system that has fatally weakened his constitution, and turned his mind. They are a sub-genre of Evangelical Victorian novels for young readers, part of a tradition in which writers preached the good word; they are also novels of ideas: in this case ideas about the education system: about how Latin should be taught, to whom it should be taught, and about what happens when it goes horribly wrong.
