What could be better during the golden age of boating on the Thames than a relaxing row up the river? So think J., George and Harris - not forgetting Montmorency the dog - but little do they suspect the mishaps, the scrapes and the japes that lie along the way. From becoming impossibly lost in the maze at Hampton Court to battles with tins of pineapple chunks, all the while attempting to limit the destruction wrought by the mischievous Montmorency, Jerome K. Jerome's classic novel of humorous misadventures and comedic authorial digressions is a paean to the banalities of everyday life and has entertained readers for more than a century.

Three Men in the Dark Tales of Terror by Jerome K. Jerome, Barry Pain and Robert Barr

Author: Jerome K. Jerome, Barry Pain, Robert Barr, Hugh Lamb Format: Paperback Release Date: 23/10/2017

A collection of rare horror stories that will thrill fans of classic writers such as M. R. James, Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe and E. F. Benson. Jerome K. Jerome's reputation as a humorist, renowned for his comic novel Three Men in a Boat, has thrown into undeserved obscurity his fine efforts in the ghost story genre. Three Men in the Dark collects Jerome's major horror stories, together with a selection from two of his friends with whom he founded the magazines The Idler and Today - the journalist Robert Barr and the humorist Barry Pain. Like Jerome, their stories of terror and the supernatural have been overlooked for many years. Edited and introduced by veteran anthologist Hugh Lamb, this new edition includes as an extra bonus the long-lost novelette, `The Mystery of Black Rock Creek'. Written in five parts by Jerome K. Jerome, Barry Pain, Eden Phillpotts, E. F. Benson and Bram Stoker's brother-in-law Frank Frankfort Moore, it rounds off one of the most unusual and entertaining anthologies of the macabre of recent years.

Three Men in a Boat is a humorous account by Jerome K. Jerome of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. The story begins by introducing George, Harris, Jerome and Montmorency, the dog. The men are spending an evening in J.'s room, smoking and discussing illnesses they fancy they suffer from. They conclude they are all suffering from 'overwork' and need a holiday. Eventually, the three decide on a boating holiday during which they'll camp. The remainder of the story relates their river journey and the incidents that occur. The book's original purpose as a guidebook is apparent as the narrator describes the passing landmarks and villages such as Hampton Court Palace, Hampton Church, Monkey Island, Magna Carta Island and Marlow, and muses upon historical associations of these places. However, he frequently digresses into funny anecdotes.

Three Men in a Boat

Author: Jerome K. Jerome Format: eBook Release Date: 27/04/2017

A humorous account by English writer Jerome K. Jerome of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. The three men are based on Jerome himself (the narrator J.) and two real-life friends, George Wingrave (who would become a senior manager in Barclays Bank) and Carl Hentschel (the founder of a London printing business, called Harris in the book), with whom he often took boating trips. The dog, Montmorency, is entirely fictional but, as Jerome admits, developed out of that area of inner consciousness which, in all Englishmen, contains an element of the dog. The trip is a typical boating holiday of the time in a Thames camping skiff. This was just after commercial boat traffic on the Upper Thames had died out, replaced by the 1880s craze for boating as a leisure activity.

Il viaggio e costellato da una serie di gag comiche sulle gioie e sui dolori della vita in barca (quali le peripezie sul trasporto delle vivande, la costruzione della tenda sulla barca, i pericoli di cadute in acqua), unite a divertenti divagazioni che costituiscono storie a se stanti, nel miglior stile dello humour inglese: celeberrimo e il racconto dello zio Podger alle prese con un quadro da appendere.

Three Men in a Boat is generally accepted as a work of humour due to the amusing anecdotes the three men relate during their trip up the Thames. However, author Jerome K. Jerome originally intended the book to be a travel guide for tourists participating in the then-popular activity of leisure boating. Though the book did serve as a useful travel guideand, in fact, still does, as many of the inns and pubs named in the work are still openthe timeless humour of Jeromes writing and the extreme popularity of the book in Great Britain transformed it into an important piece of popular culture as well.

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;Three Men in a Boat (illustrated) + Three Men on the Bummel + Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow: The best of Jerome K. Jerome"e; contains 3 books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.Three Men in a Boat, published in 1889, is a humorous account by Jerome K. Jerome. It is a story of three men, accompanied by a dog, as they travel in a boat up the River Thames. 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. The three men are based on Jerome himself (the narrator J.) and two real-life friends, George and Carl with whom he often took boating trips. The dog, Montmorency, is entirely fictional.Because of the overwhelming success of Three Men in a Boat, Jerome later published a sequel, about a cycling tour in Germany, titled Three Men on the Bummel. Three Men on the Bummel (also known as Three Men on Wheels) was published in 1900, eleven years after his most famous work, Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog). The sequel brings back the three companions who figured in Three Men in a Boat, this time on a bicycle tour through the German Black Forest. Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, published in 1886, is a collection of humorous essays by Jerome K. Jerome. It was the author's second published book and it helped establish him as a leading English humorist. While widely considered one of Jerome's better works, and in spite of using the same style as Three Men in a Boat, it was never as popular as the latter. Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859 - 1927) was an English writer and humorist, best known for the comic travelogue Three Men in a Boat. Other works include the essay collections Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1886) and Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow; Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to Three Men in a Boat; and several other novels.

The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories of Jerome K Jerome. An early life of poverty exacerbated by the death of his parents in his early teens helped to cruelly mold the young Jerome. After early stints on the railways, as an actor, a journalist, a school teacher, a writer and a solicitors clerk he had some minor success with a collection of comic memoirs "e;On The Stage - And Off"e; about his earlier stint as an actor. Shortly thereafter he married and his honeymoon on the Thames became the inspiration for Three Men In A Boat. This of course was a wild success both critically and commercially and also his creative highpoint. Although he was now able to write full time he was never able to attain all the heights of that classic humorous novel. However he was prolific at the shorter form and it is from that rich seam that these stories have been mined. The audiobook volume of this book can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.

Three Men In A Boat

Three Men In A Boat

Author: Jerome K Jerome Format: eBook Release Date: 03/06/2013

Three Men In A Boat ranks as one of the most amusing and agreeable books in the English language. Written soon after Jerome's marriage, it bubbles over with the happiness he felt. Rather than recording one particular trip, the story combines many boating excursions which Jerome had made with his friends. The three men round on each other when things go wrong but nothing serious mars the essentially sunny, idyllic nature of the book. The beautiful countryside through which its heroes pass is poetically described. 1. EXPEDITION PLANS. George, Harris, and J. are feeling seedy. Comparing symptoms, they realise that each of them is suffering from a whole range of aliments, J. being particularly concerned about his liver. They decide that what they need is a complete break. After discussing the alternatives, they decide on a Thames boating trip and begin to make plans. They argue about what to take and what not to take; George suggests that they need not take many clothes as they will be able to wash them in the Thames. 2. DEPARTURE. Unable to agree on what food to take with them, the Three men amass a mountain of supplies which J. volunteers to pack. To his dismay, the others leave him to it. After repeatedly having to repack to put in his boots or find his toothbrush, J. Hands over to George and Harris. Aided by Montmorency the dog, they proceed to make an even worse mess of it. The Three Men go to bed intent on an early start. Despites this, their landlady, Mrs Poppets, has to wake them at nine o' clock. George goes to work for the morning and Harris and J. reach Waterloo Station at eleven. They are unable to find a train for Kingston until they tip a driver to go that way instead of taking the mail to Exeter. 3. EMBARKATION. The boat is waiting and they set off, Harris rowing, J. steering and daydreaming - until they crash into the bank. As they pass Hampton court, J. recalls how Harris once led a party endlessly round and round its maze until rescued by an attendant. Stopping for lunch, they are accused of trespassing but are undeterred. At Weybridge, they rendezvous with George, who has brought a surprise: a banjo, which he is planning to learn to play. 4. EVENING ON THE WATER. Unwillingly, George starts towing and J. expounds on the delights he has experienced on other boating trips when being towed by girls; how it takes three girls to tow one boat. Finally evening draws in, the Three Men put up their boat's cover - discovering this is something which takes them a great deal longer than expected - and make supper. Afterwards, filled with good food and goodwill, they relax. But the boat makes a hard bed for the night and the wind is found to be disturbing. J. wakes before dawn to commune poetically with nature. 5. THE OPEN THAMES. In the grey chill of morning, the Three Men's earlier enthusiasm for a quick dip evaporates. George and Harris stay in the boat but J. creeps out on a branch to wash. Suddenly he falls in, much impressing the others, who think he is taking a swim. At lunch, unable to find a tin opener, they attempt to open a tin of pineapple with pocket-knife, scissors, a stone and finally the mast. All efforts fail and they throw the unopened tin into the Thames. Then, blessed by a favourable wind, they hoist sail and glide serenely on, straight into a punt of fishermen. 6. MARLOW AND BEYOND. At Marlow, J.'s fox-terrier Montmorency pursues a large tom cat. Instead of fleeing frantically, the cat turns round and coolly confronts him. Stunned, Montmorency backs down and gives up chasing cats for good. Meanwhile, the Three Men's shopping expedition grows until a whole army of grocery-carriers arrives at the little boat with their provisions. That evening they make Irish stew, adding everything they can find, including salmon and eggs. This upsets Harris's stomach and he stays behind while the others go to the pub. Returning in the rain, George and J. almost fail to find the boat. 7. OXFORD. J. is convinced he is doing more work than the others; oddly, the others think just the opposite. A friend's steam launch gives the boat a very useful tow from Reading to Streatley. Here the Three Men stay for two days and have their clothes professionally washed. They pay three times the normal price, as on George's advice they have tried washing their clothes on the river with disastrous results. Passing through a lock, J. recalls a time when they were nearly drowned while posing for a photograph, the boat's nose getting caught under the lock gate without their noticing. Finally, the Three Men reach their goal - Oxford. 8. THREE MEN OUT OF A BOAT. At Oxford Montmorency has plenty of good fights, and after two days the Three Men turn for home. The weather has turned too, with steady rain that chills them through and through. A cold supper fails to restore them and George's attempts at banjo playing make things a great deal worse. They recall the delight of London and remember there is a convenient train. Shamefacedly, they leave the boat and take a train back, seeing a show at the Alhambra and dining at the Bistro, happy to be out of a boat

The world has been very kind to this book. I have written books that have appeared to be more clever, books that have appeared to be more humorous, but it is as the author of Three Men In A Boat (To Say Nothing Of The Dog) that the public persists in remembering me. Certain critics used to suggest that it was the vulgarity of the book, its entire absence of humour, that accounted for its success with the people. But one feels by this time that such a suggestion does not solve the riddle. Bad art may succeed for a time and with a limited public. It does not go on extending its circle for nearly half a century. I have come to the conclusion, be the explanation what it may, I can take credit to myself for having written this book. That is, if I did write it, for really I hardly remember doing so. I remember only feeling very young and absurdly pleased with myself, for reasons that concern only myself. It was summertime, and London is so beautiful in summer. It lay beneath my window, a fairy city veiled in golden mist, for, I worked in a room high above the chimney pots, and at night the lights shone far beneath me, so that I looked down as into an Aladdin's cave of jewels. It was during those summer months I wrote this book. It seemed the only thing to do - JEROME K JEROME - An early life of poverty exacerbated by the death of his parents in his early teens helped to cruelly mould the young Jerome.

If you've never read anything by Jerome K. Jerome, you'd be well advised to heed this warning by the Glasgow Herald: ';It would be dangerous to [listen to] this book in any placesay a full railway compartmentwhere the reader was not at perfect liberty to laugh as loudly and as long as he chose.' The passage of time has not altered that verdict. Here is a perfect picture of those lazy summer days ';messing about in boats.'After his final trip up the river Thames with his three companionsHarris, George, and Montmorency the dogJerome K. Jerome sat down to write his proposed book, The Story of the Thames. But before he could tackle the work in the serious manner intended, his humor took over and gave birth to a masterpiece of unquenchable comedy. This is a classic of English humor, justifiably loved around the world.

'Other works may excel this in depth of thought and knowledge of human nature: other books may rival it in originality and size; but, for hopeless and incurable vivacity, nothing yet discovered can surpass it.' (Jerome, Preface to Three Men in a Boat). Three Men in a Boat describes a comic expedition by middle-class Victorians up the Thames to Oxford. It provides brilliant snap-shots of London's playground in the late 1880s, where the fashionable steam-launches of river swells encounter the hired skiffs of city clerks. The medley of social vignettes, farcical incidents, descriptions of river fashions, and reflections on the Thames's history, is interspersed with humorous anecdotes told by a natural raconteur. Three Men on the Bummel records a similar escapade, a break from the claustrophobia of suburban life some ten years later; their cycling tour in the Black Forest, at the height of the new bicycling craze, affords Jerome the opportunity for a light-hearted scrutiny of German social customs at a time of increasing general interest in a country that he loved. This account of middle-aged Englishmen abroad is spiced with typical Jeromian humour.

While it is beyond doubt that Jerome K. Jerome is most well known for his comic masterpiece Three Men in a Boat, the range of his other literary achievements is staggering. Journalist, playwright and author, a wealth of his writing has remained just beyond the public gaze. Diary of a Pilgrimage is one such work. The pilgrimage of the title is a journey to see the famous Passion Play at Oberammergau, which has been performed every ten years since 1634, the middle of the Thirty Years War. Diary is a typically witty account of this journey, part travelogue and part social commentary. It is also a work which has long deserved its place in the sun, outside of the benevolent shade of Jerome's more famous writing.

"e;I had the general symptoms, the chief among them being a disinclination to work of any kind."e;So begin the hilarious misadventures of a merry, but scandalously lazy band of well-to-do young men-and a plucky and rather world-weary fox terrier named Montmorency-on an idyllic cruise along the River Thames. Feeling seedy, muses one of them dreamily, "e;What we want is rest."e; What they find instead is one hapless catastrophe after another. Soggy weather, humiliating dunkings, the irritating behavior of small boats and the "e;contrariness of teakettles"e; are just a few of the barbarisms our genteel heroes are forced to endure. But which a delighted reader can only sing, Hooray!First published in 1889, Three Men in a Boat was an instant success, and Jerome has been compared to comic master P.G. Wodehouse.At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a 'T'. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks - not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency. Three Men in a Boat was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and proved so popular that Jerome reunited his now older - but not necessarily wiser - heroes in Three Men on the Bummel, for a picaresque bicycle tour of Germany. With their benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian 'clerking classes', both novels hilariously capture the spirit of their age.

Introduced and Annotated by Cedric Watts, M.A., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of English, University of Sussex. Three Men in a Boat is a comic classic. When it first appeared in 1889 it became a best seller, and has remained popular ever since. This motley novel has not only been translated into many languages but has also been staged, filmed, televised and imitated. The adventures and misfortunes on the Thames of the three English friends and their pugnacious dog, Montmorency, provide rich humour, shrewd observations, lyrical reflections, and, predominantly, genially ironic perceptions of human fallibility. The sequel, Three Men on the Bummel, reunites the three friends for their `Bummel' (`roaming or wandering') through Germany. The results vary from the seductively titillating to the outrageously farcical; and subsequent history has laden the narrative with ironies.
