Джером К. Джером JEROME K. JEROME: Three Men in a Boat, Three Men on the Bummel & Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow


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.

Джером К. Джером Three Men in a Boat (to say nothing of the dog)


Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), published in 1889, is a humorous account by English writer Jerome K. Jerome of a two-week boating holiday on the Thames from Kingston upon Thames to Oxford and back to Kingston. 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 have been praised as fresh and witty. The three men are based on Jerome himself (the narrator Jerome K. Jerome) and two real-life friends, George Wingrave (who would become a senior manager at Barclays Bank) and Carl Hentschel (the founder of a London printing business, called Harris in the book), with whom Jerome 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.[citation needed]. Following 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 (also known as Three Men on Wheels, 1900). Famous works of the author Jerome K. Jerome: Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, Three Men in a Boat, Diary of a Pilgrimage, Three Men on the Bummel, Paul Kelver, All Roads Lead to Calvary.

Джером К. Джером Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on the Bummel


Jerome K. Jerome is an English humorist best known for his book «Three Men in a Boat» and its sequel «Three Men on the Bummel.» Jerome tried his hand at a number of professions ranging from acting, writing, and journalism, but nothing seemed to fit. It wasn't until Jerome married his wife Ettie in 1888 that he found his inspiration. The two honeymooned on a small boat floating on the Thames River, and the trip inspired Jerome to think that he would create a serious travel guide. However, Jerome's wit undercut the travel guide aspect of the text, and he transformed it into a humorous adventure about three Englishmen. «Three Men in a Boat» was not received well by the upper class, who viewed the tale as vulgar and demeaning to English culture. However, the middle and lower classes related to the humor and experiences that the three men and their dog encountered while trying to go on vacation. «Three Men in a Boat» sold so many copies that Jerome wrote a sequel about a cycling tour in Germany, «Three men on the Bummel.» While it was not as celebrated as the first novel due to its lack of a unifying story, many said that its humor surpassed its predecessor. Readers can enjoy both stories in this collection.
