Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
A protagonist is one who undergoes some change. Jeeves is a fully formed and never-changing character, so it follows that Bertie must be the protagonist in the book.
What changes does Bertie undergo? What is Bertie's story line? What challenges does he face? How does Bertie overcome the challenges? Is he a true protagonist? Does he have any real shift of perception, or is he simply a one-dimensional comic figure?
Essay Topic 2
The central relationship in this book is between Bertie and Jeeves. In Chapter 1, Jeeves is introduced for the first time. Wodehouse writes many short stories and novels about these two, and they have become a classic pair in literature (and later in the television version).
How does P.G. Wodehouse introduce Jeeves? What is the relationship that is immediately set up? What does Bertie think of Jeeves? What sort of first impression does he have? How does this set up the rest of the stories?
Essay Topic 3
What is the use of names in this collection of stories? Go through the names that Wodehouse chooses for his characters. What do they reveal about the characters? Why are they funny? How does the author use nicknames? How is class identity shown through the names characters are given?
