Hilton’s inspiring short novel about a beloved teacher’s remarkable role in his students’ lives, through decades of triumph and tragedy in Britain For three generations, through war and peace, prosperity and misfortune, Arthur Chipping’s students at the Brookfield School have called him Mr. Chips. Beginning in his unpolished first years as a new teacher, through the end of the nineteenth century and well into radical changes of the twentieth, Mr. Chips has shaped the lives of the young men in his class. And when Britain is threatened by the outbreak of the First World War, it is Mr. Chips who must lead the school that has already counted on him for so much. Made into two remarkable films and other retellings on stage and television, Goodbye, Mr. Chips has endured as a revelation of the difference one good teacher can make in countless lives.
