Lecture 5 - Jeeves & Wooster
- Customer Reviews (0)
Idle and wealthy young Londoner Bertie Wooster is a complete drip, but a wonderfully comic one. His valet Jeeves is a genius, who can always rescue Bertie from scrapes, provide the right attire, whip up a cure for hangovers, and who is so skilled that his name has since become the generic term for an excellent servant.
Jeeves and Wooster first appeared in print in 1915 and for over 60 years novels about them continued to appear and delight the public.
Find out about the controversial man behind the books, think about the idle rich of London society, ponder what you would expect in a valet, and discover what it is that gives both men their charm and literary immortality.
