Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit

by

Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fans of P. G. Wodehouse's comic genius are legion, and their devotion to his masterful command of the hilarity borders on an obsession.

In Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit, Bertie is in it up to his neck when a perfectly harmless visit to Aunt Dahlia at Brinkley Court finds him engaged and beleaguered on all sides, and only Jeeves can save the day.

Review:

"The works of Wodehouse continue on their unique way, unmarked by the passage of time." Kingsley Amis

Review:

"Wodehouse's genius in the Jeeves and Wooster canon lies in his complete realisation of Bertie as first-person narrator....The particular joy of a Jeeves story comes from the delicious feeling one derives from being completely in Bertie's hands. His apparently confused way of expressing himself both reveals the character and manages, somehow, to develop narrative with extraordinary economy and life....Sometimes Bertie's speech moves towards a form of comic imagery so perfect that one could honestly call it poetic..." Stephen Fry, The Independent (UK)

Review:

"Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale....He has made a world for us to live in and delight in." Evelyn Waugh
