    Trois hommes dans un bateau (sans parler du chien) (titre original : Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)) est un roman comique de Jerome K. Jerome, publié en 1889. Il narre les aventures de George, Harris, Jérôme et Montmorency (le chien), entreprenant un voyage sur la Tamise. Le livre est parsemé d'anecdotes comiques, mais aussi de réflexions philosophiques sur l'existence, les illusions que nous entretenons volontiers sur le monde et sur nous-mêmes, et la nécessité de ne pas trop charger de luxe la barque de sa vie. L'ouvrage connaît un grand succès ; pour satisfaire à la demande, des copies piratées seront même vendues aux États-Unis. Bien que l'oeuvre ait pour but de faire découvrir de façon plaisante l'histoire de la Tamise, ce sont les anecdotes comiques qui en font le succès et qui rendent le livre toujours populaire de nos jours.

  • La paresse a toujours été mon point fort. Je n'ai aucun mérite : c'est un don.
    Jerome K. Jerome
    « Penser, soit, mais en passant, sans se presser. L'oisif accueille la pensée comme certaines branches l'oiseau : il veut bien être perchoir mais non point nid. De même qu'il existe une authentique philosophie de comptoir, il existe une pensée de fauteuil. L'oisif aime à discourir des sujets les plus triviaux - il trouvera toujours le moyen, au détour d'une apparente banalité, de faire entendre les saignements de son coeur. »

  • What could be more relaxing than a refreshing holiday on the river with your two best friends and faithful canine companion, Montmorency? However, as J. discovers, there is more to life on the waves than meets the eye - including navigational challenges, culinary disasters, and heroic battles with swans, kettles and tins of pineapple. Jerome K. Jerome's delightful novel has kept readers smiling for years and his prose has found a perfect partner in Vic Reeves's glorious and witty illustrations.ILLUSTRATED WITH THIRTY ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS BY COMEDIAN AND ARTIST VIC REEVES - EXCLUSIVE TO VINTAGE CLASSICS

  • 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 proved so popular that Jerome reunited his now older - but not necessarily wiser - heroes in Three Men on the Bummel, for a picaresque bicycle tour of Germany. With their benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian 'clerking classes', both novels hilariously capture the spirit of their age.

    With ideas like this, perhaps it is not a good idea to spend a holiday taking a boat trip up the River Thames. But this is what the three friends - and Montmorency the dog - decide to do. It is the sort of holiday that is fun to remember afterwards, but not so much fun to wake up to early on a cold, wet morning.

During the journey they visit many different places and fall into various and interesting situations.

    Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859 - 1927) was an English writer and humorist. Inspired by his sister's love for the theatre, he decided to try his luck in acting, but gave up after three years of no visible success. Jerome is best known for his comic novel "Three Men in a Boat" from 1889, a work that brought him large popularity. Some other popular works are the two collections of essays "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow" and "Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow", and the novel "Three Men on the Bummel".

    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 to 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. Other works include the essay collections Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1886) and Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow; Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to Three Men in a Boat; and several other novels.

  • Trois petits employés de bureau, amateurs de bistros, tire-au-flanc et hypocondriaques, entreprennent, pour prendre l'air, de remonter en canot la Tamise. Munis notamment d'un banjo et d'une poêle à frire, et accompagnés d'un fox-terrier nommé Montmorency, les voilà engagés dans le plus saugrenu des périples... Au récit hilarant de cette folle équipée s'entremêlent de savoureuses digressions sur les mérites comparés d'un voyage avec ou sans fromage dans ses valises, la vaste fumisterie des bulletins météorologiques, l'inconvénient de dormir sous le même toit qu'un couple d'amoureux, ou encore l'effet démoralisant de l'air fluvial...Trois Hommes dans un bateau, qui connut dès sa parution en 1889 un succès phénoménal, est un classique de l'humour anglais.

    THE DIARY OF A NOBODY
    Mr Charles Pooter is a respectable man. He has just moved into a very desirable home in Holloway with his dear wife Carrie, from where he commutes to his job of valued clerk at a reputable bank in the City. Unfortunately neither his dear friends Mr Cummings and Mr Gowing, nor the butcher, the greengrocer's boy, nor the Lord Mayor seem to recognise Mr Pooter's innate gentility, and his disappointing son Lupin has gone and got himself involved with a most unsuitable fiancee...
    George and Weedon Grossmith's comic novel, perfectly illustrated by Weedon, is a glorious, affectionate caricature of the English middle-class at the end of nineteenth century.

  • 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.'

    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. -
