Goodbye, Mr Chips book summary:
The novel tells story of a beloved schoolteacher, Mr. Chipping and his long tenure at Brookfield school, a fictional British boys’ Public boarding school located in the fictional village of Brookfield, in the fenlands. Boys call Mr. Chips is conventional in his beliefs, and exercises firm discipline in the classroom. Mr. Chip’s views broaden and his pedagogical manner loosens after he marries Katherine, a young woman whom he meets on holiday in the Lake District. Despite Chipping’s mediocre credentials and his view that Greek and Latin are dead languages, he is an effective teacher who becomes highly regarded by students and also by school’s governors. In his later years, he develops an arch sense of humor that pleases everyone. The book is sentimental; it also depicts the sweeping social changes that Chips experiences throughout his life. He begins his tenure at Brookfield in September 1870, at the age of 22, as the Franco-Prussian War was breaking out; he dies at the age of 85 in November 1933.
