[ Pdf The Papers of A.J. Wentworth, B.A. (The Wentworth Papers Book 1) ì queer-studies PDF ] by H.F. Ellis Ë H F Ellis book is a true classic of written English humor His work compares favorabily with the work of Jerome K Jerome and P.
G Wodehouse Ellis dry sense of humor and excellent use of language makes this one of the funniest books I ve read in a long time At first, seeing the snooty pretensioness of schoolmaster A.
J Wentworth constantly pricked and deflated is hysterical, but before long you ll be on his side and saying aloud between the laughs Poor, poor chap AJ is a wonderfully engaging character ridiculous but sympathetic in the same way as Diary of a Nobody s Pooter or Eliza s Husband in The Eliza Stories both happily available from Prion The episodes of classroom life will be instantly recognised by everyone, some of the situations may even make you squirm with embarassment but the humour of Ellis book is in his hero Wentworth s lack of self awareness and the dignity he tries unsuccessfully to maintain This book can be appreciated by anyone from 15 to 150 but I would especially recommend it to those in the teaching profession Perhaps Prion could issue a collected works of AJ Wentworth The sooner the better.
I rarely leave reviews, but this book is, simply put, a genuine treasure Described as a caricature of a war time schoolmaster, I see it as an apt description of that unique individual, the English eccentric Poor Wentworth simply cannot see the hilarity he arouses in others, from his headmaster to his pupils The umbrella scene is hilarious , PG Wodehouse would be proud At the same time, his colleagues are obviously very fond of him I immediately paid for the following 2 volumes, 5 stars



These are diary extracts from a bumbling pre WW2 schoolmaster and also from his war time diaries This is a very witty portrait with laugh out loud moments It s a cleverly drawn picture of one who never makes mistakes, in his own opinion The pre war public school or prep school I m not sure which scenes are nostalgic and told with great affection.
