Lord Emsworth: Quotes :
  • Beach ,” said Lord Emsworth. “M’lord?” “I’ve been swindled. This dashed thing doesn’t work .” “Your lordship cannot see clearly ?” “I can’t see at all, dash it. It’s all black .” The butler was an observant man. “ Perhaps if I were to remove the cap at the extremity of the instrument , m’lord, more satisfactory results might be obtained.” “Eh? Cap? Is there a cap? So there is. Take it off, Beach.” “Very good , m’lord.” “Ah!”
  • “It’s Aggie. My wife , you know .” “Well?” “She’s left me.” “Left you!” “Absolutely flat.”
  • ”Why did you let him go? You must have known I would want to see him.” “What good would that have done?” “I could at least have assured him of my sympathy,” said Lady Constance stiffly. “Yes, I suppose you could,” said Lord Emsworth, having considered the point. “Not that he deserves any sympathy. The man’s an ass.” “ Nothing of the kind. A most intelligent young man, as young men go.” “Young? Would you call him young? Fifty, I should have said, if a day.” “Are you out of your senses? Heacham fifty?” “Not Heacham. Smithers.”
  • “Are you employed on a farm ?” “I was employed on a farm.” “Pigs?” said Lord Emsworth in a low, eager voice . “ Among other things.” Lord Emsworth gulped. His fingers clutched at the tablecloth.
  • “Hullo, guv’nor” “Well, Frederick ?” “How are you feeling ?” “Extremely ill.” “Might have been worse, you know.” “Bah!” “Watery grave and all that.” “Tchah!”
  • “I’ll – er – I’ll think it over, McAllister.” “Mphm.” “I have to go to the village now. I will see you later .” “Mphm.” Meanwhile , I will – er – think it over.” “Mphm.”
  • “Well, McAllister?” said Lord Emsworth coldly. “What is the matter , McAllister?” “You appear agitated, McAllister.”
  • “Oh!” said Freddie . He paused. “Oh, ah!” He paused again . “Oh, ah, yes! I’ve been meaning to tell you about that, guv’nor.” “You have, have you?” “All perfectly correct , you know. Oh, yes, indeed! All most absolutely correct-o! Nothing fishy, I mean to say, or anything like that. She’s my fiancée” A sharp howl escaped Lord Emsworth, as if one of the bees humming in the lavender-beds had taken time off to sting him in the neck.
  • “The fact is, guv’nor –“ “You know you are forbidden to come to London.” “Absolutely, guv’nor, but the fact is –“ “And why anybody but an imbecile should want to come to London when he could be at Blandings –“ “I know, guv’nor, but the fact is –“
  • Lord Emsworth laid a trembling hand upon his shoulder . “McAllister, I will raise your salary.” The beard twitched. “Dash it, I’ll double it!” The eyebrows flickered. “McAllister … Angus … “ said Lord Emsworth in a low voice. “Come back ! The pumpkin needs you.”
    Lord Emsworth is the protagonist in the book. His full title is Clarence Threepwood, 9th Earl of Emsworth, and Viscount
    Bosham. His character is kind, but a bit absent-minded. Throughout the book many of the actions and situations are related with him,
    some more, some less. He most likes being alone and either walking in
    the garden or reading a book in the library. Also, he does not stand one bit his son Freddie staying at the castle and is willing to do
    much to get rid of him. Throughout the book, he often gets into funny
    situations (Quotes 1,2). Also, he often drifts away from the topic on
    hand and starts to speak about what is on his mind at the moment.
    This often irritates many of the other characters ( Quote 3). He is
    absolutely possessed with his garden and the farm animals and products that might win him prizes. Because of that, he spends much
    time with them and worries about them. This is probably because he still has the old nobility manners and thus tries to spend his free
    time this way. Many of his ancestors took part in these contests and

    Blandings Castle kokkuvõte

    Blandings Castle by P.G. Wodehouse Wodehouse was an acknowledged master of English prose admired both by contemporaries and by modern writers. He has been called "English literature's performing flea", a derogatory description that Wodehouse cherished and adopted as the title of his autobiography. Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a talented playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of fifteen plays and of 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies. Wodehouse took a modest attitude to his own works. In Over Seventy (1957) he wrote: "I go in for what is known in the trade as 'light writing' and those who do that ­ humorists they are sometimes called ­ are looked down upon by the intelligentsia and sneered at."

    A lamb to the slaughter

    Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl (1916-1990) The room was warm and clean, the curtains drawn, the two table lamps alight - hers and the one by the empty chair opposite. On the sideboard behind her, two tall glasses, soda water, whiskey. Fresh ice cubes in the Thermos bucket. Mary Maloney was waiting for her husband to come him (correction: home) from work. Now and again she would glance up at the clock, but without anxiety, merely to please herself with the thought that each minute gone by made it nearer the time when he would come. There was a slow smiling air about her, and about everything she did. The drop of a head as she bent over her sewing was curiously tranquil. Her skin - for this was her sixth month with child - had acquired a wonderful translucent quality, the mouth was soft, and the eyes, with their new placid look, seemed larger darker than before. When the clock said ten minutes to five, she began to listen, and a few moments later, punctually as always, she hear
