Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on the Bummel

This is the only critical edition available of two of the most popular modern classics in English literature. Three Men in a Boat describes a comic expedition by middle-class Victorians up the Thames to Oxford, and provides brilliant snap-shots of London's playground in the late 1880s. Three Men on the Bummel records a similar escapade some ten years later, when the trio cycle through the Black Forest, at the height of the new bicycling craze. - ;`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. -

Three Men in a Boat

Three Men in a Boat was a terrific success for its author, and a surprisingly accurate portrayal of the age.

Three Men in a Boat

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, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian ‘clerking classes’, it hilariously captured the spirit of its age.

Artwork that bring to life certain episodes in the story Suggestions for further reading and website links that the reader will find informative and helpful Three Men in a Boat is a humorous story of three men and a dog who undertake a boating trip on the Thames. Jerome K Jerome based the characters of the three men on himself and his two friends, George Wingrave (George) and Carl Hentschel (Harris). However, the dog Montmorency is fictional, whose antics add substantially to the humour in the story. When the book was first published, it was not liked by critics, who considered the writing flippant. The book professed no wish to improve the reader's mind, intent merely on sharing the excitement and fun of a boating holiday. Unlike the other writers of his period, Jerome used colloquial language to portray the tone of exuberance and fun. In both content and language, therefore, it was a complete contrast to the kind of books that were written at that time. However, the general public liked the book for precisely this very reason, as it brought a whiff of fresh air to staid Victorian manners and society. At a time when hard work and earnest endeavour were lauded, and the country prided itself on its commercial and political progress, the story of three young men doing nothing more than boating down the Thames was a refreshing change. The book was an instant bestseller and was reprinted many times, so much so that its publisher, J W Arrowsmith, wondered whether the public was eating the copies! The book has stood the test of time and continues to amuse readers even today. The humour in the book is based on a fine insight into human nature, exposing pretensions to refinement and knowledge in a lighthearted way. The book has been adapted to almost every conceivable medium - television, films, musicals, radio, and even audio tapes.
