In trying to explain to my husband exactly why I find Wodehouse so laugh out loud funny I used this passage One uses the verb descend advisedly for what is reuired is some word suggesting instantaneous activity About Baxter s progress from the second floor to the first there was nothing halting or hesitating He so to speak did it now This is a brilliant example of Wodehouse s ability to put it just so how can you explain this any better Planting his food firmly on a golf ball which the Hon Freddie Threepwood who had been practising putting in the corridor before retiring to bed had left in his casual fashion just where the steps began he took the entire stiarcase in one majestic volplanning sweep This is an excellent example of Wodehouse s exuisite characterization I was in tears tears imagining that Hon gentleman able to see perfectly his plan to practice putting near the stairs then wandering off absentmindedly He came to rest with a suattering thud on the lower landing and for a moment or two the fever of the chase left him Fever of the chase Slays me As astute readers of Wodehouse will no doubt know Baxter always Suspects but when oh when will he ever stop rushing downstairs in the dark to try to catch the criminal It always ends badly At least there was no tongue involved in this episodeMy husband did not uite get it But Wodehouse is surely one of the finest comic minds of our time or any time at all Genius

Wodehouse ☆ 0 review D ptarmigan has uit the fish business even though there is money in fish and decided to support himself by doing anything that he is hired. 910 It is the opinion of most thoughtful students of life that happiness in this world depends chiefly on the ability to take things as they come When his life starts to smell too strongly of Fish Psmith feels the need for a change of scenery I have become acuainted with Psmith the P is silent during his college days at Wreckam where he dazzled his colleagues with his nonchalant atitude his well cut suits his ability to fast talk his way out of the troubles brought about by his love for mischief his cavalier atitude towards other people s properties that he disguise as practical socialism I ve skipped a couple of his adventures as they were not easily available at the library and settled on the fourth book in the series which sees Mike visiting one of the most popular spots for romance and adventure in the Wodehousian universe the Blandings CastleBy bringing together one of the most subversive of his characters with one of his most sedate country retreats Wodehouse creates here an explosive mix that will soon have flower pots flying at the castle s windows serious people tumbling down staircases in the middle of the night precious necklaces doing dissapearing acts stern Aunts putting their foot down mistaken identities by the bucket and last but not least marriage proposals and changes of the heart Freddie Threepwood one of the clueless aristocrats in the book exclaims at one point I wish life was a bit like the movies His wish is granted by the author who puts the screw in screwball once againSo how exactly did Psmith manage to land at Blandings As I already mentioned it has to do with fish and with the redistribution of wealth in the form of umbrellas from rich gentlemen to young ladies in distress There s also an ambitiously creative curriculum vitae that Psmith submits to the newspapers in the hope of landing a job fitted to his aspirations in life LEAVE It TO PSMITH Psmith Will Help YouPsmith Is Ready For AnythingDO YOU WANT Someone To Manage Your AffairsSomeone To Handle Your BusinessSomeone To Take The Dog For A RunSomeone To Assassinate Your AuntPSMITH WILL DO ITCRIME NOT OBJECTED TOWhatever Job You Have To OfferProvided It Has Nothing To Do With FishLEAVE IT TO PSMITH This announcement comes to the attention of Freddy Threepwood who is under curfew at Blandings after incurring heavy debts at the racing track Freddy needs somebody to steal his aunts necklace and offers the job to Psmith Psmith has his own reasons to accept as his heart is stolen by a young lady headed for the same old pile of masonry I am a plain blunt rugged man above the softer emotions as a general thing but I frankly confess that she stirred a chord in me which is not often stirred She thrilled my battered old heart Comrade Walderwick There is no other word Thrilled it Aided by Lord Emsworth s eyesight problems and his tendency to get distracted when he starts to talk at length about his beloved garden Psmith manages to get invited for a visit impersonating an American poet Once there he dedicates his life almost exclusively to the pursuit of the lovely Eve Halliday the young lady in need of an umbrella in an earlier chapter I will not go into all the complications that ensure other than to mention that misunderstandings and pratfalls and dastardly acts come in rapid succesion barely leaving the reader time to catch his breath before a fresh screwball assault Wodehouse is for me a byword for laughter therapy offering the kind of novel that is almost impossible to read in public places on account of incontrollable guffaws and chuckles The ingredients of his recipes a pastoral setting an opulent Arcadia where misery or poverty dare not enter or are uickly dealt with a place that most probably never existed outside the writer s imagination but one that serves well as a panacea for weary souls The popularity of Wodehouse is not much different from that of the musicals and posh comedies that dominated the box office during the Great Depression Here s how a place like this is described in the novel Market Blandings had a comforting air of having been exactly the same for centuries Troubles might vex the generations it housed but they did not worry that lichened church with its sturdy four suare tower nor those red roofed shops not the age old inns whose second storeys bulged so comfortably out over the pavements young people in love drama is often created by the obstacles put on the path to happiness by grumpy aunts or tight fisted Uncles by mistaken identities or misdirected affections The fact that these stories always have a happy ending relieve the reader of anxiety about the outcome and allow himher to relax and enjoy the ride Alone Psmith looked at her astonished When you have the chance of being with me This is a strange atitude a feast of words witty observations and elaborately constructed phrases that are always a delight to follow thorugh to their logical and hilarious conclusion I rarely use a dictionary nowadays when I am reading a novel in English preferring to extract meaning from context when I come upon unfamiliar words but in the case of Wodehouse I don t want to miss a thing so I happily look up words like solecism a phrase that trespasses the rules of grammar cavilled made petty or unnecessary objections Final words one of the best novels from the author I have read so far To use Wodehouse own form of praise he came up in an earlier book with the bee s knees the fourth Psmith adventure can be described as Well if this ain t the cat s whiskers and You re the snake s eyebrows and You re the oyster s eye tooth
