It is Cotton who, fictionalized as ‘the young master’, identifies the ‘qualities’ of cricket as a team game: ‘“The discipline and reliance on one another which it teaches is so valuable, I think,” went on the master, “it ought to be such an unselfish game. It merges the individual in the eleven; he doesn’t play that he may win, but that his side may”’ (TBS, 315).

Papillon is dismayed by the lack of academic knowledge attained by public school boys but suggests that, nevertheless, the schoolboy ‘brings away with him something beyond all price, a manly, straightforward character, a scorn of lying and meanness, habits of obedience and command, and fearless courage. Thus equipped, he goes into the world, and bears a man’s part in subduing the earth, ruling its wild folk and building up the Empire’ (Richards, 13). The essence of male education, then, was perceived as existing not in academic learning but in the creation of men of character, fit to rule the Empire.
