Reden wir von Operationen, Ärzten oder anderen ansteckenden Krankheiten, so tun wir dies meistens mit einer sorgenerfüllten Stimme, die den Ernst der Lage unmissverständlich unterstreicht. Das muss so aber nicht sein, wie uns diese kleine Anthologie beweist. Denn in der Literatur finden sich durchaus Beispiele, die uns zeigen, dass 'Komik' und 'Krankenhaus' oder 'Husten' und 'Humor' keine unüberbrückbaren Gegensätze sind. Vier Sprecher behandeln in dreizehn Texten wichtige Fragen wie: 'Sind Krankheiten schädlich?', 'Wann kommt mein Arzt aus Dubai zurück?' oder 'Was ist die Untersuchungspille?'Show more
"A 'Bummel,'" I explained, "I should describe as a journey, long or short, without end." However wonderful this may sound, it is often necessary to arrive back at the starting point. And, for the three fearless friends, whose earlier adventures were told in Three Men in a Boat, this poses a troublesome problem. George, Harris, and J. decide to take a cycling trip through the Black Forest, and this is to be accomplished on a tandem plus one. Whether it is Harris's harrowing experience with a Hanoverian road-waterer or George's valiant attempt to buy a cushion for his aunt, their experiences are hilarious--and they may even offer some important lessons to all who may be contemplating a cycling trip in the U.S. JEROME K. JEROME (1859-1927), English humorist, novelist, and playwright, was born in Staffordshire and brought up in London. Successively a clerk, schoolmaster, reporter, actor, and journalist, he became joint editor of The Idler in 1892 and launched his own twopenny weekly, To-Day. His magnificently ridiculous Three Men in a Boat (1889) established itself as a humorous classic of the whimsical. Other books include The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1889), Three Men on the Bummel (1900), Paul Kelver (1902), the morality play, The Passing of the Third Floor Back (1907), and his autobiography, My Life and Times (1926).Show more
