Delicious and appetizing odors filled the kitchen of the old Corner House. They were wafted even to the attic, were those whiffs and fragrant zephyrs. Some of them even escaped through the open windows, causing Uncle Rufus to cease his slow and laborious task of picking up some papers from the newly cut lawn. "Dat suah smells mighty good-mighty good!" murmured the old darkey to himself, as he straightened up by the process of putting one hand to the small of his back and pressing there, as though a spring needed adjusting. "Dat suah smells mighty good! Mrs. Mac mus' suah be out-doin' of herse'f dish yeah mawnin'!"
Jerome K. Jerome's tale of three well-to-do Englishmen, and one dog, on a boating expedition along the Thames is rightly famous as a comic classic. Jerome's masterful style turns even the most mundane events into a series of hilarious epics, from a visit to the doctor, to cooking breakfast, steering a punt or learning to play the banjo. But behind the light-hearted buffoonery and nimble-witted prose Jerome manages to weave into the story a pungent sarcasm, a pointed critique on both the self-centred nature of the English upper class, and the many ills of Victorian society.
