||Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was
an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, lyrics, and
essays, all with the same light touch of gentle satire. He is best known
as the creator of the irredeemably dim and unflaggingly affable Bertie
Wooster and his invincible valet Jeeves, but Wodehouse also produced multi-volume
story cycles on Blandings Castle, Mr. Mulliner's extended family, Mike
and Psmith, the Oldest Member, Uncle Fred, and the Drones Club. (All this
is in addition to his many stand-alone novels, short stories, and plays.)
Throughout his stories, Wodehouse presents a view of the world which differs from -- his fans would say, improves upon -- the focus most people have. For a variety of reasons, pigs, newts, and statues of the Infant Samuel at Prayer play significant roles in the Wodehousian view, while such things as death, taxes, and work are crowded towards the O. P. wings.
The intent of this site is to provide a set of links to those sites on the World Wide Web that, in one way or another, stand with Wodehouse as he surveys the world.
