Jerome K. Jerome
is a well-known
humorist and one
of that writers
whose literary
works are full of
aphorisms. They
strike us with their
wittiness and
accuracy.
“I outrage that precious watch of our life,
these miraculous instants, which never will
return, aimlessly are spent on dream”.
Меня возмущает, что драгоценные часы
нашей жизни, эти чудесные мгновения,
которые никогда уже не вернутся,
бесцельно тратятся на сон.
Only one who has quite a lot of absolutely
urgent deals can really enjoy one`s
laziness”.
Насладиться ленью по-настоящему
может лишь тот, у кого есть куча
совершенно неотложных дел.
“It is necessary to think not about that
what can be useful to us , but only
about that, without what we shall not be
able to present.”
Нужно думать не о том, что нам
может пригодиться, а только о том,
без чего мы не сможем обойтись.
"He willingly takes the heaviest burden and
without complaining loads it on someone
else shoulder“
Он охотно берет самое тяжелое бремя и
безропотно взваливает его на чужие
плечи.
In the history of
English literature
Jerome K. Jerome
occupies the modest
place. He cannot be
compared with
Dickens, Thackeray,
or Bernard Shaw, but
he is well known as a
writer-humorist not
only in his country
but in other
countries too.
Jerome Klapka Jerome, best
known as the author of
'Three Men in a Boat', one
of the great comic
masterpieces of the English
language, was born in
Walsall, Staffordshire, on
2nd May 1859, the
youngest of four children.
He attended the Philological
School, later known as the
Marylebone Grammar
School.
He started working at the
London and North Western
Railway in 1872.
In his free moments Jerome
tried to write. He wrote
plays, stories and articles,
but nothing was published.
His first literary success was
a one-act comedy which
was performed in the Globe
theatre in London in 1886.
The Globe theatre
On 21 June 1888 Jerome
married divorcée Georgina
Elizabeth Henrietta Stanley
Marris, "Ettie" (1859–1938).
Jerome and Georgina's
daughter Rowena was born
in 1898.
He went travelling all over
Europe and in 1899 he
visited St. Petersburg,
where he was met with
enthusiasm. “The
Russian person - one of
the most charming
creatures of the globe…”
When the first World
War began Jerome
wanted to go to the front
as a volunteer. The
English army wouldn't
accept his service but in
1916 Jerome was an
ambulance driver for the
French army.
On 17 February 1927
Jerome went back to Belsize
house where a tablet graces
his birth home and he was
given the honour of
Freeman of the Borough of
Walsall in the Town Hall.
On 14 June 1927 Jerome
died in Northampton
General Hospital after
suffering a series of strokes.
He was cremated at Golders
Green, Middlesex on 17
June and buried at St.
Mary's Church, Ewelme,
Oxfordshire.
One of his most interesting
and humorous book
“Three Men in a Boat” was
written in 1828.
The History of a very
unusual journey of three
english gentlemen on the
river Thames in the
company with their loved
dog.
