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'..

When Bertie Wooster, a blundering, but well-meaning bachelor, returns home to London after spending time in the Canes with his aunt and cousin, he discovers that his valet, Jeeves, has been advising an old friend on love. Gussie, Bertie’s school friend, is head-over-heels in love with a young, whimsical lady named Madeline. Unsure what to do with his crush, Gussie turned to Jeeves in Bertie’s absence, happy with the help he received. Bertie, however, becomes annoyed and jealous, paranoid that his friends may think that Jeeves is smarter than him. In an effort to prove himself superior, Bertie orders Jeeves not to offer any more advice. Instead, Bertie invites Gussie to a prestigious event at Brinkley Court to make a speech. Though Bertie was originally told by his aunt that he was expected to make the speech, Bertie was nervous to do so, and decided that it would be best for Gussie to do it. Then, Gussie could use the opportunity to win over Madeline, who would be at the event. However, Bertie’s plan quickly becomes derailed after an effort to probe Madeline about her feelings results in a mistaken declaration of love. When Madeline declines what she assumed was Bertie’s marriage proposal, she claims to have feelings for Gussie.

A P.G. Wodehouse collection Money makes the world go round for Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge - and when there isn't enough of it, the world just has to spin a bit faster. Ever on the lookout for a quick buck, a solid gold fortune, or at least a plausible little scrounge, the irrepressible Ukridge gives con men a bad name. Looking like an animated blob of mustard in his bright yellow raincoat, he invests time, passion and energy (but seldom actual cash) in a series of increasingly bizarre money-making schemes. Finance for a dog college? It's yours. Shares in an accident syndicate? Easily arranged. Promoting a kind-hearted heavyweight boxer? A snip. Poor Corky Corcoran, Ukridge's old school chum and confidant, trails through these pages in the ebullient wake of Wodehouse's most disreputable but endearing hero and hopes to escape with his shirt at least..

“The immortal comic duo of ditsy Bertram Wooster and his unflappable valet Reginald Jeeves” are at it again in this hilarious follow-up to My Man Jeeves (The Washington Post). As Evelyn Waugh said of him, P. G. Wodehouse “satisfies the most sophisticated taste and the simplest.” His second collection to feature British butler Jeeves and his frivolous aristocratic employer, Bertie Wooster, contains some of his best loved stories, including “The Great Sermon Handicap,” in which bets are placed on which parson will preach the longest Sunday sermon. Many of these linked stories feature the romantic misadventures of Bertie’s friend Bingo Little—who falls in love with everyone from a parson’s niece, a romance novelist, and a Communist to Bertie’s own fiancée. Bertie also struggles with willful Aunt Agatha and the formidable and athletic Honoria Glossop, who just may be a bit too much woman for him. As always, Jeeves steps in to set things right.

The Novel Life of PG Wodehouse - Roderick Easdale Preview:

Was PG Wodehouse really a traitor, a naive simpleton dominated by his wife and out of touch with the world around him? This book challenges many of the accepted wisdoms about PG Wodehouse and his work and skilfully entwines details of Wodehouse's life with an analysis of his work to show that, contrary to popular belief, many of the scenarios, characters and issues he wrote about came from his own, sometimes bitter, personal experience. It shows, for instance, how Bertie Wooster is a much misunderstood figure in literature and shared many of the characteristics and life story of PG Wodehouse himself. Easdale also gives fresh insight into PG Wodehouse's alleged ‘treachery’ during World War II and his motives for making five radio broadcasts from Germany which were to cast a shadow over the rest of his life. ‘Easdale often finds an original angle with which to shatter stale, accepted perception... this book is compelling.’ (Country Life). ‘This fascinating examination offers a refreshing and accessible study of Wodehouse’s work.’ (Press Association)..

Middlebrow Wodehouse - Ann Rea Preview:

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..
