Jim (author) consider himself a hero and Harris and George are side heroes in his side.Jim feels that he is more sophisticated than other 2 friends.He let no chance slip to decry the dressing sense of Harris and George. Jim is philosophic.

Harris too rants and this is only a safety valve for him to release his emotions.He never tries to harm his friends with his remarks.He is boastful.He is a fussy man and do little work.

George is sensible and pratical through he hates work.George is boastful and philosophic.

Hope it helps..................

Character sketch of Harris -

Harris is a vain fellow who pretends to be extremely hard working but usually pushes off the burden on other people. he is outspoken and does not hesitate to tell his friends what he thinks about them even if it may not be pleasant. for example he outwardly tells george that his new blazer is utterly revolting and that he must not wear it around them (harris and j). when harris takes on a job he makes a huge fuss out of it like the narator;s uncle podger. it may not be anything majorly important but if harris is going to do it .... the world would know about it. he also thinks very highly of himself and his voice though his friends do not want him to even attempt singing. he is extremely fascinated by tombs and graveyards much to j 's dislike. he is also quite short tempered and it is best to let him rant off his anger rather than try and talk to him about it.he wouldn 't mind a drink at any time of the day and enjoys the company of his friends .

Posted by Kshitiz Singh(student)on 26/9/12

 Harris as a man of no emotion.He is not in the habit of crying. He also does not know why it is so . He is also a jolly man .He 's always after some sort of drink in the offering .He is the one who gives solutions .Harris always  knows about a place round the corner where you can get something brilliant in the drinking line. Harris is a easy going person who cares little about other things

Harris is practical and shriker. He goes with George and Jerome on boating holiday. He thinks that he suffer from fits of gittiness unlike Jerome, he is practical in his attitude and loves to drink. He likes to drink in a pug. He does not like to sleep outside at night. He likes to argue with narrator. He is boastful by nature. He is a short tempered person and gets angry when he does not have his own way. He becomes polite, good and peaceful after taking supper.

Character sketch of George -

George was a bank clerk (who 'goes to sleep at a bank from ten to four each day, except Saturdays, when they wake him up and put him outside at two ') and was living in a back room of the same house. The landlady suggested that, to save money, the two might share a room. They 'chummed ' together for some years - both shared a love of the theatre -and a life-long friendship was formed. George, who remained a bachelor, rose to become manager of Barclays Bank in the Strand and outlived.

Character sketch of Jerome -

Jerome is the narrator of the book. He is a young, single middle-class man living in London , much like the author himself at the time of the publication of the book, and the initial J is possibly meant to suggest that he stands in for Jerome.

J is fond of history and literature and spends much of his time daydreaming about the days when knights roamed the countryside of England . This daydreaming sometimes gets him into trouble when he does not pay suitable attention to what he is doing.

J, like his two friends on the boat trip, is a little vain and conceited, but he realizes it and pokes gentle fun at himself, his friends, and the habits of others like them through his anecdotes, where he and his friends are often the butt of ego-skewering jokes.

J has always been fond of boats, but prefers the old fashioned...

Character sketch of Montmorency -


Montmorency is the dog that accompanied the three men in their river trip.

Montmorency looked like an angel sent to Earth in the form of a small Fox Terrier. He had a gentle noble expression, which brought tears to the eyes of elderly folk. When Montmorency first arrived, the author thought that he would not live long. But, he soon changed his opinion about Montmorency when his true nature was exposed. The author had to pay for chickens Montmorency had killed and had to drag him out of umpty street fights. Once Montmorency killed the neighbor’s cat and on one occassion he had kept a man stuck in his own toolshed for about two hours. The author’s gardener made money by betting on Montmorency’s rat-killing skills. He liked to roam around and fight with dogs of a similar disreputable nature. Therefore, he enjoyed places like inns and pubs.

  • a practical young man, who could not appreciate romanticism in the world around him.
  • fond of drinking and eating; not too fond of working hard.
  • not much imagination and was more aggressive than the other two.
  • had a strange fascination for cemeteries and tombs
  • not much aesthetic sense and dressed in loud colours like orange and yellow, which did not suit him.
  • a terrible singer and could never remember the words to a song.
  • thought he could cook well, but as the incident with the eggs showed, he was not a good cook either.
  • frank and outspoken young man, which was evident when he ensured that George did not play his Banjo within his hearing.

 

GEORGE-

  • employed at a bank, where the only work his friends thought he did was sleep
  • had some knowledge of the ways of the world and was the one to give sensible advice and suggestions, such as the articles that should be taken along on the trip, the clothes, food, etc.
  • calmer and less aggressive than Harris.
  • did not appear to have much sense of style, however, as evident from the loud blazer he had bought for the trip.
  • did not like spending much thought on trivial matters as he remarked that ‘if anything was broken, it was broken.’
  • last one to offer to do anything that required physical labour.
  • not very quick-witted and depended on the others to lead him. He loved laughing at others but did not enjoy it much when the joke turned on him.
  • keen to learn to play the Banjo, but he played quite badly and even turned a cheerful song into a mournful tune
  • some knowledge of cooking, as can be seen by the fact that he made a healthy Irish Stew.

 

JEROME(author)-

 

  • The narrator, a happy-go-lucky young man like his two friends
  • fond of animals, as seen in his interactions with cats and his dog, Montmorency.
  • hypochondriac, imagining that he had all the imaginable diseases of the world, just by reading about them.
  • more sensible and practical than the other two and shows a knowledge and appreciation for the historical aspect of the English countryside.
  • Like his friends, he too disliked hard work, and was convinced that he had been labouring the most while the other two lazed about.
  • more romantic and imaginative soul, with his head often in the clouds, as he lost sight of the fact that he was steering time and again, while admiring the scenery. He was the most affected by the beauties of nature. In fact, he had turned down the inn at Datchet initially because it did not have honeysuckle growing over it and hence was not picturesque enough.
  • keenest sense of aesthetics as he constantly critiques his friends’ choices of clothing.
  • sense of humour and maintained a steady balance between the diverse personalities of George and Harris .

character sketch of harris-Harris is a man who is overconfident about almost everything. However, he eventually turns out to be a failure with the things he considers himself to be expert at. Harris account of his visit to the Hampton court maze serves as one of the most humorous one in the book. He claims to be a very good cook but eventually messes up the dish and even burns himself. Harris loves music and believes that he is very good at singing comic songs. But the fact is that he messes them up as he forgets the lyrics and confuses the pianist. However, in their discussions on whether to camp out or not, it is Harris who makes a sensible point by counting the difficulties one would face while camping on rainy and stormy nights. According to him, one faces several difficulties as the things that one carries get damp.
