Aborrito dagli allievi che l'hanno soprannominato Himmler, disprezzato dai colleghi, sentimentalmente frustrato, alla vigilia di un prepensionamento forzato, il prof. Andrew Crocker-Harris riceve in regalo da uno studente (B. Silverstone) la versione dell'Agamennone di Eschilo fatta da Robert Browning. Il gesto gli dà la forza di fare un discorso di addio che è, insieme, una dolorosa confessione pubblica del proprio fallimento e una denuncia dell'aridità ipocrita della società britannica e del suo sistema scolastico.
