A propos de l'auteur

Jerome K. Jerome was born in Walsall, Staffordshire, England on May 2, 1859. He grew up in London and had to leave school at the age of 14 because of his parents' death. Afterwards, he worked as a clerk, an actor, a journalist, and a school teacher. In 1885, he published his first book On the Stage afficher plus - and Off: The Brief Career of a Would-Be Actor. This was followed by numerous plays, books, and magazine articles including Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, Three Men in a Boat, and Three Men on the Bummel. He founded the weekly magazine To-Day in 1893 and edited it and a monthly magazine called The Idler until 1898. He also worked as a lecturer. During World War I, he enlisted in the French army as an ambulance driver because he was rejected for active service in his own country. He published his autobiography My Life and Times in 1926. He suffered a paralytic stroke and a cerebral hemorrhage and died on June 14, 1927. (Bowker Author Biography) afficher moins

Courte biographie
Jerome Klapka Jerome (2 May 1859 – 14 June 1927) was an English writer and humourist, best known for the comic travelogue Three Men in a Boat (1889).

Other works include the essay collections Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1886) and Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow; Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to Three Men in a Boat, and several other novels.

Jerome was born in Caldmore, Walsall, England. He was the fourth child of Marguerite Jones and Jerome Clapp (who later renamed himself Jerome Clapp Jerome), an ironmonger and lay preacher who dabbled in architecture. He had two sisters, Paulina and Blandina, and one brother, Milton, who died at an early age. Jerome was registered as Jerome Clapp Jerome, like his father's amended name, and the Klapka appears to be a later variation (after the exiled Hungarian general György Klapka). The family fell into poverty owing to bad investments in the local mining industry, and debt collectors visited often, an experience that Jerome described vividly in his autobiography My Life and Times (1926).[3]

The young Jerome attended St Marylebone Grammar School. He wished to go into politics or be a man of letters, but the death of his father when Jerome was 13 and of his mother when he was 15 forced him to quit his studies and find work to support himself. He was employed at the London and North Western Railway, initially collecting coal that fell along the railway, and he remained there for four years.

Critiques

Par rapport aux trois titres existants pour la traduction française, Trois hommes sur un vélo est sans doute le moins bien approprié. On retrouve bien en effet 3 hommes, anglais, les mêmes héros que dans Trois hommes dans un bateau du même auteur (et bien plus connu), qui décident de s'offrir une "balade", sans leurs femmes, en Allemagne. Ils font bien sûr du vélo, ce qui donne lieu à quelques réflexions amusantes sur le sujet, mais il voyagent aussi en train, en bateau ou en calèche.
Ce récit humoristique est surtout l'occasion de comparer et souvent de se moquer des moeurs et usages anglais et allemand au tout début du XXème siécle. Pas désagréable même si c'est forcément daté.

Elégante et reposante croisière d'époque proposée sur la Tamise qui vous mènera jusqu'à l'Absurdie. Humour "so British" à chaque escale, ponctué de quelques instants d'histoire et de culture.
