Essay Topic 1
Jeeves has become, over time, a very popular and enduring character. In some way, he has become an archetype. Describe the character of Jeeves, and discuss what it is about the character that is so interesting and has made such a mark upon popular culture. Use examples from the book.
Essay Topic 2
Inherent in P.G. Wodehouse's work is the class system that existed in England (and still exists to some extent). The humor of Bertie and Jeeves is partly based on the absurdity of class. Bertie is clearly the lesser man, yet, in the English system, he has power over a man like Jeeves.
Describe the class system by using examples from the book. Where does the humor lie in the relationship between employer and servant? Why does it make us laugh when Jeeves is clearly the greater mind and man?
Essay Topic 3
The life of the idle rich is often of interest to us. Bertie floats from place to place with no real purpose but to eat, drink, and be merry. What is it about this life of Bertie's that draws the reader in?
What is Bertie's daily life like as described in this book? What is his purpose in life? Why are readers drawn in by this kind of life and character?
