Summary
MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). Mr Chipping is a quiet, unassuming teacher at Brookfield Grammar School - a wholly conventional schoolteacher who never veers from his proscribed routines. Until the day he meets Katherine, who charms him and his students and teaches Mr Chipping that education is about more than just the hours spent in the schoolroom. As his love for Katherine blooms, Mr Chipping develops a sense of humour and a broad view of his role as a teacher and a friend to his students, becoming the beloved 'Mr Chips' to generations of schoolboys. Sweeping across four decades, Goodbye, Mr Chips features an extraordinary period of history, from the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s to Hitler's rise to power in the 1930s, and demonstrates that, through it all, love and a good sense of humour can make all the difference. Goodbye, Mr Chips is the beloved classic of generations of readers, and sure to delight people of all ages
