Jerome Klapka Jerome Three Men, George, Harris, Jerome of the Merry & Lazy Variety of well-to-do Young men of the Victorian Era feel so depressed with their routine & assumed illness (Munchausen Syndrome) that they decide to go on an Idyllic Cruise along London Thames River for a fortnight, in an equally depressing soggy weather. They pack their food, clothes & the fictional dog, Montmorency, in a small boat. They travel the Country along the Thames. Right from the word ’go’, nothing goes right for them. This book narrates what all they are forced to encounter & endure in their jolly boat ride.
Jerome Klapka Jerome The book was initially intended to be a serious travel guide, with accounts of local history along the route, but the humorous elements took over to the point where the serious and somewhat sentimental passages seem a distraction to the comic novel. One of the most praised things about Three Men in a Boat is how undated it appears to modern readers — the jokes seem fresh and witty even today.
Jerome Klapka Jerome There are two kinds of clocks. There is the clock that is always wrong, and that knows it is wrong, and glories in it; and there is the clock that is always right—except when you rely upon it, and then it is more wrong than you would think a clock could be in a civilized country. The man who can live in the same house with one of these clocks, and not endanger his chance of heaven about once a month by standing up and telling it what he thinks of it, is either a dangerous rival to that old established firm, Job, or else he does not know enough bad language to make it worth his while to start saying anything at all.
Jerome Klapka Jerome This book gave a good view into the heady days of Socialism and the Social Gospel in England before and during WWI. The door had stood invitingly open, and a glimpse of the interior had suggested to her the idea that it would make good copy. “Old London Churches: Their Social and Historical Associations”. It would be easy to collect anecdotes of the famous people who had attended them. She might fix up a series for one of the religious papers.
Jerome Klapka Jerome This is a ghost story book. Whenever five or six English-speaking people meet round a fire on Christmas Eve, they start telling each other ghost stories. Nothing satisfies us on Christmas Eve but to hear each other tell authentic anecdotes about spectres. It is a genial, festive season, and we love to muse upon graves, and dead bodies, and murders, and blood. There is a good deal of similarity about our ghostly experiences; but this of course is not our fault but the fault ghosts, who never will try any new performances, but always will keep steadily to old, safe business. The consequence is that, when you have been at one Christmas Eve party, and heard six people relate their adventures with spirits, you do not require to hear any more ghost stories. To listen to any further ghost stories after that would be like sitting out two farcical comedies, or taking in two comic journals; the repetition would become wearisome.
Jerome Klapka Jerome This is a humor essay book. The follow-up to Jerome K. Jerome's bestselling volume of humorous essays, Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, this collection offers the author's witty observations on all manner of topics, ranging from love to children to cats and dogs. Readers who appreciate a good turn of phrase and are in dire need of a good laugh shouldn't hesitate to read The Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow.

Jerome Klapka Jerome Diary of a Pilgrimage is a novel by Jerome K. Jerome published in 1891. It tells of a trip undertaken by Jerome and his friend "B" to see the Oberammergau Passion Play in Germany. They travel by train from London Victoria to Dover and have a rough overnight crossing of the Channel to Ostend and thence by train to Cologne where they spend a night in a hotel. The following day they visit Cologne Cathedral before catching the train to Munich, travelling alongside the Rhine. They spend Sunday in Munich where Jerome practices his German before catching a train to Oberau and then a carriage to Oberammergau to see the play. They return via Heidelberg.
Jerome Klapka Jerome It is already very well known the humor of Jerome K. Jerome, which eventually came to be a distinctive emblem of this writer. It was a noisy, crowded street in the daytime; but a silent, lonesome street at night, when the gas-lights, few and far between, partook of the character of lighthouses rather than of illuminants, and the tramp, tramp of the policeman on his long beat seemed to be ever drawing nearer, or fading away, except for brief moments when the footsteps ceased, as he paused to rattle a door or window, or to flash his lantern into some dark passage leading down towards the river.
Jerome Klapka Jerome This book is intended to portray a modern incarnation of the Christ, but this, of course. This modern miracle play, with it's deep religious meaning, has been seen and enjoyed by many thousand American young people. and is intended to portray a modern incarnation of the Christ, but this, of course.
Jerome Klapka Jerome There is a friend of mine, an old sea-captain. He is the sort of man that when the three balls are lying in a straight line, tucked up under the cushion, looks pleased; because then he knows he can make a cannon and leave the red just where he wants it. An Irish youngster named Malooney, a college chum of Dick's, was staying with us; and the afternoon being wet, the Captain said he would explain it to Malooney, how a young man might practise billiards without any danger of cutting the cloth. He taught him how to hold the cue, and he told him how to make a bridge. Malooney was grateful, and worked for about an hour. He did not show much promise. He is a powerfully built young man, and he didn't seem able to get it into his head that he wasn't playing cricket. Whenever he hit a little low the result was generally lost ball. To save time--and damage to furniture--Dick and I fielded for him. Dick stood at long-stop, and I was short slip.
Jerome Klapka Jerome In this book detail the a neat card--pinned, say, upon our back-- setting forth such information as was necessary; our name legibly written, and how to be pronounced; our age not necessarily in good faith, but for purposes of conversation. Once I seriously hurt a German lady by demanding of her information about the Franco-German war. She looked to me as if she could not object to being taken for forty.
Jerome Klapka Jerome The main character of this book is a waiter who meets a variety of odd people in the coffee shop he works in, from a man whose baby is shown in a dog show to Carrot, who finds that life as a Marchioness is just like a funeral with the corpse left out.
Jerome Klapka Jerome The story is about Higgs returns to Erewhon and meets his former lover Yram, who is now the mother of his son George. He discovers that he is now worshipped as "the Sunchild", his escape having been interpreted as an ascension into heaven, and that a church of Sunchildism has sprung up. He finds himself in danger from the villainous Professors Hanky and Panky, who are determined to protect Sunchildism from him. With George's help Higgs escapes from their clutches and returns to England.
Jerome Klapka Jerome This is a novel. This novel is presumed to be autobiographical and is not the light-hearted whimsy of Three Men in a Boat, although there is humor to be found. Jerome is at his best when writing humor. In this book, Jerome reveals (via Kelver) his sometimes reluctant reconciliation with his role as a humorist. I imagine only fans of Jerome will be likely to give this book a read. It is more powerful and touching for being so clearly heartfelt, but may not be of much interest to those not interested in Jerome.
Jerome Klapka Jerome It is a fiction short story of a Doctor. The Doctor never did believe this story, but claims for it that, to a great extent, it has altered his whole outlook on life. "Of course, what actually happened what took place under my own nose", continued the Doctor, "I do not dispute. And then there is the case of Mrs. Marigold. That was unfortunate, I admit, and still is, especially for Marigold. But, standing by itself, it proves nothing. These fluffy, giggling women as often as not it is a mere shell that they shed with their first youth one never knows what is underneath. With regard to the others, the whole thing rests upon a simple scientific basis. The idea was 'in the air', as we say a passing brain wave. And when it had worked itself out there was an end of it. As for all this Jack and the Beanstalk tomfoolery " There came from the darkening uplands the sound of a lost soul. It rose and fell and died away.

Jerome Klapka Jerome From the lively imagination of British humorist Jerome K. Jerome comes this collection of three short stories and two sketches that showcase the range of his story-telling skills. The title story is a sweet, old-fashioned and uplifting love story; the collection also includes a creepy Norwegian ghost story, among others.
Jerome Klapka Jerome The comic look at the curious habits and customs of the inhabitants of Stage Land. Dedicated to that highly respectable but unnecessarily retiring individual, of whom we hear so much but see so little, the earnest student of drama. A series of short satirical essays on the conventions and cliches of theater. The stage hero heroine villain adventuress lawyer etc. I enjoyed this a lot particularly some bits about what passes for stage law e. g. , That whoever finds the will gets to inherit and his observations about how the stage hero always manages to knock out three or more villains with a single punch all for the glory of the most insipid stage heroine whose charms are never as evident as they seem to be to the stage hero.

Three Men in a Boat by Jerome Klapka Jerome
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain
Jerome Klapka Jerome ìThree Men in a Boatî is a hilarious adventurous novel by Jerome K. Jerome. It is about three men and their dog, at times lazily and at other times energetically pulling up the River Thames, experiencing timeless adventures. The narrartion is light and comic that involves harmless escapism and lashings of good humour.
Jerome Klapka Jerome (Mrs. Elizabeth Spender sits near the fire, reading a book. She is a tall, thin woman, with passionate eyes, set in an oval face of olive complexion; the features are regular and severe; her massive dark hair is almost primly arranged. She wears a tailor-made costume, surmounted by a plain black hat. The door opens and Phoebe enters, shown in by Hake, the butler, a thin, ascetic-looking man of about thirty, with prematurely grey hair. Phoebe Mogton is of the Fluffy Ruffles type, petite, with a retroussé nose, remarkably bright eyes, and a quantity of fluffy light hair, somewhat untidily arranged. She is fashionably dressed in the fussy, flyaway style. Elizabeth looks up; the two young women shake hands.)
Jerome Klapka Jerome Trzech panów w łódce (nie licząc psa), oryginalny tytuł angielski Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) – humorystyczna powieść angielskiego pisarza Jeromea K. Jeromea wydana w 1889 roku. Fabuła utworu obejmuje przygotowania i samą wycieczkę trzech młodych mężczyzn łodzią po Tamizie między Kingston i Oksfordem, a przerywana jest bardzo licznymi anegdotycznymi dygresjami. Powieść do dzisiaj jest uważana za jedno z najlepszych dzieł angielskiej literatury humorystycznej.
Jerome Klapka Jerome It takes the form of imaginary conversations between the writer and a number of un-named characters at the afternoon tea table. The Woman of the World, the Old Maid, the Girton Girl, the Philosopher and the Minor Poet wax lyrical on subjects like marriage, art, society and politics. Frequently they appear to prefer the sound of their own voice to that of others.
Jerome Klapka Jerome This is a humour book. The advantage of literature over life is that its characters are clearly defined, and act consistently. Nature, always inartistic, takes pleasure in creating the impossible. Reginald Blake was as typical a specimen of the well-bred cad as one could hope to find between Piccadilly Circus and Hyde Park Corner. Vicious without passion, and possessing brain without mind, existence presented to him no difficulties, while his pleasures brought him no pains. His morality was bounded by the doctor on the one side, and the magistrate on the other. Careful never to outrage the decrees of either, he was at forty-five still healthy, though stout; and had achieved the not too easy task of amassing a fortune while avoiding all risk of Holloway. He and his wife, Edith (née Eppington), were as ill-matched a couple as could be conceived by any dramatist seeking material for a problem play. As they stood before the altar on their wedding morn, they might have been taken as symbolising satyr and saint. More than twenty years his junior, beautiful with the beauty of a Raphael’s Madonna, his every touch of her seemed a sacrilege.
Jerome Klapka Jerome It is a collection on humorous ramblings and insights on German society held together with a thread of a story. It has the same charters as “Three Men in a Boat”. A Bummel is a German word and it signifies a journey or just a stroll. Along with humour it also provides an insight in Germany and it's people at the end of the 19th century.
Jerome Klapka Jerome Introduzione di Guido Bulla Traduzioni di Maria Grazia Bianchi Oddera e Silvio Spaventa Filippi Edizioni integrali
All’interno della vastissima produzione narrativa, saggistica, teatrale di Jerome K. Jerome (circa sessanta opere), solo Tre uomini in barca (1889) e, in misura di poco minore, il suo “seguito”, Tre uomini a zonzo (1900), hanno goduto di una fama ininterrotta e universale. Osteggiato dalla critica “seria” del suo tempo, Jerome sopravvive e gode oggi di ottima salute anche nel nostro Paese (finora, la saga dei tre uomini è comparsa in Italia in almeno 25 traduzioni differenti). I “segreti” di Jerome sono tanti: la maestria e la varietà delle sue invenzioni umoristiche; il miracolo di un moralismo mai pedante, neppure quando ci pone dinanzi a uno specchio in cui riconosciamo istantaneamente le nostre follie quotidiane, il suo humour tanto proverbialmente “inglese” quanto ricco di una presa sanamente concreta ed epicurea sulla vita.
«C’è qualcosa di molto strano e inspiegabile, in una cima da rimorchio. L’arrotoli con la stessa cura e la stessa pazienza di cui potresti dar prova nel piegare un paio di pantaloni nuovi e, cinque minuti dopo, quando vai a riprenderla, è tutta un terrificante e ributtante groviglio.»
Jerome Klapka Jerome
(1859-1927), nato come giornalista, ha saputo trasformare la prosa della cronaca in vivace e autonoma rappresentazione letteraria, collocando la sua produzione romanzesca nella migliore tradizione inglese dello humour e della satira di costume. Oltre a Tre uomini in barca e Tre uomini a zonzo ha scritto Pensieri oziosi di un ozioso.
Jerome Klapka Jerome The events surrounding Malvina, the Queen’s attendant have been recorded in this work. In his usual comic and hilarious manner he sums up the characters of these frivolous giggling women. A highly entertaining work!
Jerome Klapka Jerome Jerome K. Jerome, in his usual hilarious manner, comments upon the diversity and attitudes of life. From the diminutive to the immense, from the ordinary to the whimsical, he takes into account every facet of human beings and comes up with idiosyncratic ideas about them.
Jerome Klapka Jerome Set in the backdrop of Germany, this amusing book narrates the journey of three men who are on a cycle-trip through the Black Forest. This intrigues the people of that time and consequently a thoroughly hilarious chain of events starts. This piece by Jerome K. Jerome is a testament of his ability to picturesquely present his imagination. Entertaining!
Jerome Klapka Jerome This collection of essays brilliantly reflects the amazing talents of Jerome K. Jerome. He satirizes and derides the attitudes and values of his times. The work comments on the life around and the vanity of the elite. In his humorous style, he renders an array of colours to all his descriptions. Amazing!

Il capolavoro di Jerome (1859-1927), un classico dell'umorismo inglese.

Jerome Klapka Jerome Perhaps of all, it troubled most the Herr Pfarrer. Was he not the father of the village? And as such did it not fall to him to see his children marry well and suitably? marry in any case. It was the duty of every worthy citizen to keep alive throughout the ages the sacred hearth fire, to rear up sturdy lads and honest lassies that would serve God, and the Fatherland. A true son of Saxon soil was the Herr Pastor Winckelmann—kindly, simple, sentimental. A commonplace-looking man was the Herr Pastor, short and fat and bald. But there had been other days, and these had left to him a voice that still was young; and the evening twilight screening the seared face, Ulrich heard but the pastor's voice, which was the voice of a boy.
Jerome Klapka Jerome They look so dull and dowdy in the spring weather, when the snow drops and the crocuses are putting on their dainty frocks of white and mauve and yellow, and the baby-buds from every branch are peeping with bright eyes out on the world, and stretching forth soft little leaves toward the coming gladness of their lives. They stand apart, so cold and hard amid the stirring hope and joy that are throbbing all around them.
Jerome Klapka Jerome Cambiare aria e sfuggire alla routine: questo si propongono tre amici londinesi quando decidono di visitare la Germania e fare un giro in bicicletta per la Selva Nera. Ma la loro avventura comincia ancor prima di partire: ad esempio, non è per niente facile convincere le mogli che quel viaggio è necessario, e poi c'è da pensare all'itinerario, ai bagagli e a come organizzare i turni sul tandem. Uno scapolo e due ammogliati, tre caratteri a volte incompatibili, trascorrono una vacanza vivacizzata da una serie di divertenti disavventure. Con una buona dose di umorismo, comunque, si riesce a superare ogni difficoltà e andare a zonzo in compagnia si rivela un'esperienza meravigliosa.

Sono qui raccolte sette opere della letteratura inglese che, oltre a essere veri capolavori, sono ormai così famose, anche per essere divenute film di successo, da essere conosciute da un pubblico vasto ed eterogeneo. In Tempi difficili, sullo sfondo ideologico dell’epoca (utilitarismo, pragmatismo, liberalismo), Dickens svolge il conflitto tra il cinismo e la rigidità degli aristocratici e dei nuovi industriali e l’umanità vitale ed emarginata della libera gente del circo. Al variegato e vivace mondo di Dickens fa da contrappunto la densa e minacciosa atmosfera noir de Lo strano caso del Dr. Jekyll e Mr. Hyde, che, oltre a essere una esplicita metafora della eterna lotta tra il bene e il male, è soprattutto un attacco che Stevenson ha voluto sferrare contro la repressiva e puritana letteratura inglese del periodo vittoriano. Dalle tenebrose nebbie londinesi si passa poi all’esplorazione delle oscurità dell’animo umano, descritte metaforicamente da Conrad in Cuore di tenebra (forse il suo capolavoro), attraverso un viaggio nel cuore più profondo dell’Africa, dove si cela un segreto di cui è penoso perfino riferire. Di tutt’altro genere il viaggio che Jerome fa compiere, con maestria e varietà di invenzioni umoristiche, ai suoi Tre uomini in barca, nella migliore tradizione inglese dello humour e della satira di costume. La tradizione inglese del self-control e della tenacia nel perseguire implacabilmente i propri scopi si riflette nella figura del detective più famoso di tutti i tempi, Sherlock Holmes, qui alle prese con un incubo dal sapore gotico. Il mastino dei Baskerville è un’opera straordinaria e intramontabile. Il premio Nobel per la letteratura Rudyard Kipling ci offre con Kim il racconto dello strenuo tentativo di riconciliare due culture quanto mai opposte, ma anche la celebrazione di un’amicizia cui fa da sfondo l’opulenza dei paesaggi indiani ancora popolati dall’ingombrante presenza delle truppe inglesi. Conclude la raccolta uno dei libri più belli e rivoluzionari in assoluto: L’amante di Lady Chatterley, che fu messo al bando in Inghilterra per il grande scandalo suscitato; in realtà quest’opera difende appassionatamente le ragioni dell’amore, della passione più autentica e travolgente, della ricerca spregiudicata di un rapporto libero, genuino, intenso, contro tutte le regole, i pregiudizi e le convenzioni che finiscono con l’incatenare ogni vero sentire.
