These classics are part of the P. G. Wodehouse Collection and The Great Books Series by Golding Books, and this book is also available on Amazon in eBook. Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was born in Guildford, Surrey, in 1881. His father Henry Ernest Wodehouse was a magistrate resident in the British colony of Hong Kong, and his mother Eleanor (née Deane) was the daughter of the schoolmaster and author Reverend John Bathurst Deane. His mother was visiting her sister when Wodehouse was born prematurely, and after his baptism (and being named after his godfather Lieutenant-Colonel Pelham George von Donop-yet his nickname came to be "Plum") the two sailed for Hong Kong. Raised by a Chinese nurse along with his elder brothers Peveril and Armine, the siblings returned to England when Wodehouse was two and were cared for by an English nanny in a house adjoining that of Eleanor's parents' (a then-normal arrangement for colony families). Whatever the effect of the distance, Wodehouse developed a love for reading and dreaming up stories and described his childhood as a happy one. He attended Malvern House Preparatory School in Kent, as his father planned for him to have a career in the Royal Navy, but poor eyesight prevented him from pursuing this (he later parodied Malvern House's austerity by having character Bertie Wooster describe his school as a "penitentiary"). In 1894 he followed brother Armine to Dulwich College, and liked the camaraderie there, becoming editor of the school magazine, The Alleynian, and excelling in various sports as well as singing. His father's pension lost value (it fell against the pound, since it was paid in rupees), and, rather than follow Armine to Oxford, Wodehouse was unhappily employed in a junior position at the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank in London. He would write at the end of each working day, and during his two years at the bank he had 80 pieces published in nine magazines, also writing for The Globe newspaper's popular "By the Way" column. With the publishing of his first novel The Pothunters (1902), Wodehouse resigned from the bank to write full-time. Amongst his considerable literary output, his most enduring and beloved characters include the witty monocle-sporting Psmith, idle rich Londoner Bertie Wooster and his highly capable valet Jeeves, the amiable if forgetful Threepwood family head Lord Emsworth and his idyllic home of Blandings Castle, Mr. Mulliner and his improbable recollections in the Angler's Rest pub, and the Oldest Member and his unabating golf stories. It is also notable that, having moved to France in 1934 for tax reasons, in 1940 Wodehouse was taken prisoner at Le Touquet in northern France by the invading Germans and interned for nearly a year. On his release, six broadcasts (comic rather than political) from German radio in Berlin to the United States led to anger in Britain, and he never returned to England. From 1947 he lived instead in the US, taking dual British-American citizenship in 1955. Over the course of his long career, Wodehouse wrote more than 70 novels, 40 plays (including books for musicals), and 20 collections of short stories, as well as assorted articles, autobiographical stories, and poetry. He died in 1975, aged 93, in Southampton, New York.

INDEPENDENT 'To dive into a Wodehouse novel is to swim in some of the most elegantly turned phrases in the English language.' BEN SCHOTT ______________________ Jeeves may not always see eye to eye with Bertie Wooster on ties and fancy waistcoats, but he can always be relied on to whisk his young master spotlessly out of the soup (even if, for tactical reasons, he did drop him in it in the first place).

Download or read The World of Jeeves PDF, written by P.G. Wodehouse and published by Random House. This book was released on 2012-11-30 with total page 784 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus 'Jeeves knows his place, and it is between the covers of a book.' This is an omnibus of wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories, specially selected and introduced by Wodehouse himself, who was struck by the size of his selection and described it as almost the ideal paperweight. As he wrote: 'I find it curious, now that I have written so much about him, to recall how softly and undramatically Jeeves first entered my little world. Characteristically, he did not thrust himself forward. On that occasion, he spoke just two lines. The first was: "Mrs Gregson to see you, sir." The second: "Very good, sir, which suit will you wear?" It was only some time later that the man's qualities dawned upon me. I still blush to think of the off-hand way I treated him at our first encounter...'. This omnibus contains Carry On, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves and the short stories 'Jeeves Makes an Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'.
Download or read Middlebrow Wodehouse PDF, written by Ann Rea and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2017-05-15 with total page 302 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While he is best known for his Jeeves and Bertie Wooster stories, P.G. Wodehouse was a prolific writer who penned many other novels, stories, and musical comedy libretti, the latter of which played an enormous role in the development of American musical theater. This collection re-examines Wodehouse in the context of recent scholarship on the middlebrow, attending to his self-conscious relationship to the literary marketplace and his role in moving musical comedy away from vaudeville’s lowbrow associations towards the sophistication of the Wodehouse style. The focus on the middlebrow creates a critical context for serious critical consideration of Wodehouse’s linguistic playfulness and his depictions of social class within England. The contributors explore Wodehouse’s fiction and libretti in reference to philosophy, depictions of masculinity, World War I Britain, the periodical market, ideas of Englishness, and cultural phenomena such as men’s fashion, food culture, and popular songwriting. Taken together, the essays draw attention to the arbitrary divide between high- and middlebrow culture and make a case for Wodehouse as a writer whose games with language are in keeping with modernist experimentation with artistic expression.
Download or read Wonderful Wodehouse 1 A Collection PDF, written by P.G. Wodehouse and published by Random House. This book was released on 2009-11-01 with total page 800 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Inimitable Jeeves A classic collection of stories featuring some of the funniest episodes in the life of Bertie Wooster, gentleman, and Jeeves, his gentleman's gentleman - in which Bertie's terrifying Aunt Agatha stalks the pages, seeking whom she may devour, while Bertie's friend Bingo Little falls in love with seven different girls in succession (including the bestselling romantic novelist Rosie M. Banks). And Bertie, with Jeeves's help, hopes to evade the clutches of the terrifying Honoria Glossop. At its heart is one of Wodehouse's most delicious stories, 'The Great Sermon Handicap'. Carry On, Jeeves These marvellous stories introduce us to Jeeves, whose first ever duty is to cure Bertie's raging hangover ('If you would drink this, sir... it is a little preparation of my own invention. It is the Worcester Sauce that gives it its colour. The raw egg makes it nutritious. The red pepper gives it its bite. Gentlemen have told me they have found it extremely invigorating after a late evening.') And from that moment, one of the funniest, sharpest and most touching partnerships in English literature never looks back... Very Good, Jeeves: An outstanding collection of Jeeves stories, every one a winner, in which Jeeves endeavours to give satisfaction: By saving a grumpy cabinet minister from being marooned and attacked by a swan - in the process saving Bertie Wooster from his impending doom... By rescuing Bingo Little and Tuppy Glossop from the soup (twice each)... By arranging rather too many performances of the song 'Sonny Boy' to a not very appreciative audience... And by a variety of other sparkling stratagems that should reduce you to helpless laughter.
Download or read A Brief Guide to Jeeves and Wooster PDF, written by Nigel Cawthorne and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-03-21 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A comprehensive guide to P. G. Wodehouse's two best-loved comic characters, Bertram Wilbeforce Wooster and his valet ('Reggie') Jeeves, Bertie's friends and relatives and their world of sunshine, country houses and champagne. Although the stories may seem quintessentially English, they were for the most part written in the United States by a man who spent more than half his adult life there, eventually becoming a citizen in 1955. The first stories involving the two characters are even set in New York, while those that aren't are set in an England that has never existed, contrived to appeal to an American audience. Cawthorne offers fascinating insights into Wodehouse's world, his life - on Long Island and elsewhere - the wonderful short stories and novels and the many adaptations for stage and screen.
