Lecture 4 - Three Men
- Customer Reviews (0)
When three young men and Montmorency the dog decide to take a boating holiday on the Thames, the result is one of the funniest novels ever written.
Jerome K. Jerome’s classic is hilarious and whether you are reading the scene of getting lost at Hampton Court maze, or the attempts to open a tin of pineapple, or the looking up of one’s symptoms in a medical dictionary, it is impossible not to laugh. But J, Harris and George are often very foolish and never especially admirable.
Thousands wanted to emulate their adventure and even today men set off to replicate the famous boating trip.
This talk discusses these sporting young men, the fabulous contrast between their aims and their achievements, and looks at how sport is often a way of defining masculinity.
