 summary of keeping it from harold

Harshit Agarwal From D A V Public School, added an answer, on 27/2/11

 Mr and Mrs Bramble were immensely proud of their son Harold. Harold was ten years old, a prodigy and an exceptional child by all standards. An intellectual, he won prizes in competitions. He was very classy and so superior that even his parents developed a complex. Harold was a model of excellent behaviour and he respected his parents a lot. Mr Bramble was a professional boxer and had been proud of his fame but ever since Harold was born, he had kept this as a secret. Harold was told that his father was a commercial traveller. Mr Bramble who had thrived on his feats in the boxing ring, trembled to see his name in print now. Both Mr and Mrs Bramble were secretly a little afraid of their son and did not wish to fall in his esteem. Mr Bramble was already thirty-one years old and he had decided to have his last boxing match and then retire. A week away, Bill Bramble was scheduled to have his last fight, the twenty-round contest with American Murphy at the National Sporting Club, for which he was training at the White Hart down the road.
Mrs Bramble sends Harold for a walk but she is surprised to see her husband and her brother, Major Percy Stokes in the doorway. She is shocked to know that Bill has decided not to fight and there is lot of discussion regarding his decision with Percy Stokes. Mrs Bramble makes it clear that this step was unacceptable to her, even if she did not like her husband 's profession. Bill Bramble was supposed to win five hundred pounds, and one hundred and twenty, even if he lost. This money was very much needed to cater to Harold 's education. The trainer, Jerry Fisher, enters at this juncture and he is also shocked to discover that Bill has decided to back out at the eleventh hour.
Jerry begs, pleads, cries and tempts Bill but he is steadfast in his decision because this fight will be covered by all newspapers and Harold will discover this secret. Tempers are running high, and at this critical moment, Harold makes his entry. Mr Jerry Fisher feels cheated, he wants his revenge. So he spills over the entire story to Harold, despite all opposition. Bill feels let down in front of his son and tells him frankly that he was not a man of wrath but just a professional boxer and he is withdrawing from his last match. Harold who had been watching all, suddenly surprises everyone. He is angry with his parents for hiding this secret but the content of his speech takes everyone 's breath away. Harold reveals that he was betting his pocket money on the defeat of Jimmy Murphy and his friends would have been awefully proud of him, had they known that his father was 'Young Porky '. He even requests for a photograph of his father to impress his friends. This talk encourages Jerry Fischer and Bill also goes to complete his training. Harold reverts back to playing games with his mother and continues with his affectionate chat.

 Keeping It From Harold by P.G.Wodehouse is a story about worried parents of Harold, an exceptionally brilliant ten years old child. Human mind sometimes travels beyond the possible and imagines and fears more than necessary. Harold had defied the Bramble laws of hereditary by excelling in academics rather than in sports. His father was a professional heavy weight boxer while he, at the age of 10, had taken the spelling and dictation prize last term on his head. A spectacled child who was so devoted to his books, such a model of behaviour, so altogether admirable. And it was this that prevented his parents, who were lovers of truth, to conceal the fact of his father 's profession. When Harold was a baby, it had not mattered much. However, when he grew up with such a fine intellect, into a model of goodness, even the senior curate of the parish suggested Mrs. and Mr. Bramble to keep the truth from Harold. It was a possible negative effect on his academics and the idea of the fact bringing embarrassment to Harold that everybody feared, made them all to behave in such a fashion.

Mrs.Bramble was too much concerned about Harold coming to know about his father 's profession. However, there were other concerns too that she was worried about. Although Mrs. Bramble never liked Mr.Bramble 's profession but the fact remained that it earned them a good deal of money, which made it easy for them to provide Harold with the best of education till then. Mrs.Bramble even remarked that the education they have provided to Harold was as good as education provided to a Duke. Just that day her brother Major Percy came with Bill Bramble breaking the news that Bill was not to fight the final fight with the American Murphy. The news drowned Mrs. Bramble into sorrow as the fight was going to earn him five hundred pounds. Even if he lost, he would have been given a hundred and twenty pounds. The money would have been enough for them to give Harold a good start in his education. Mrs. Bramble was so upset about how she was to manage her son 's education. Her financial worries were disturbing her deeply. She was so sure of the money that Mr. Bramble was to bring home the next week over his victory she was already celebrating in her heart. The news of him quitting the fight broke all her hopes of a better tomorrow.

The climax of the story is filled with chaos and irony. Mr. Bramble 's coach, Jerry Fisher, in anger, spilled the truth of his father 's profession in front of Harold. However, the reaction of Harold, when the truth was revealed, took all by surprise. Harold felt so proud that it was his father after all who was named Young Pork. Irony here was the fact that he was upset and annoyed that his parents had kept the truth from him all the while.

A SHORT SUMMARY OF 1 MINUTE

Harold was an extraordinary child. His mother was proud of him and his teachers praised him. His priests were concerned for him and his marks were always on the top of other marks. Because Harold was growing up to a model child, a morally formed student, an innocent son, his parents were forced to keep away from him the fact that his father was a popular boxer.

THESE WILL HELP YOU !!!!

  1. What sort of a domestic creature was Mrs. Bramble?
    Mrs. Bramble was such a domestic creature whose life was means and spent for her very popular husband and her very genius son Harold. She was often lost in reveries meditating on her family 's sound future.
  2. What did Harold dislike of his mother?
    Harold disliked his mother 's referring to him in third person, addressing herself mother rather than I and calling him dearie or precious which sounded rather against his impressions of himself. In fact Harold liked to be considered a young man of ten years.
  3. What was a constant source of amazement to Mrs. Bramble?
    The constant source of amazement for Mrs. Bramble was that her son Harold had no character traits of his father, the nationally acclaimed Young Porky, the boxer. Unlike his father, Harold was a model student for his class.
  4. Why was Harold 's perfection a trouble for his parents?
    Harold was perfect in everything, right from his studies to his behaviour. Because he was very precise and that an evasive answer could not satisfy his questions, his parents could not simply mix their definition of a boxer. They had to, therefore say that Mr. Bill was a commercial traveller.
  5. What was to be kept from Harold? Why was it to be kept from Harold?
    The fact that his father was a boxer was to be kept from Harold. It was so decided by his parents because they feared that the child would be hurt to know that his father was a man of wrath and made a living by injuring people. Harold had already become a model student in his school and a model of goodness and intelligence among his friends and teachers.

Mr and Mrs Bramble were immensely proud of their son Harold. Harold was ten years old, a prodigy and an exceptional child by all standards. An intellectual, he won prizes in competitions. He was very classy and so superior that even his parents developed a complex. Harold was a model of excellent behaviour and he respected his parents a lot. Mr Bramble was a professional boxer and had been proud of his fame but ever since Harold was born, he had kept this as a secret. Harold was told that his father was a commercial traveller. Mr Bramble who had thrived on his feats in the boxing ring, trembled to see his name in print now. Both Mr and Mrs Bramble were secretly a little afraid of their son and did not wish to fall in his esteem. Mr Bramble was already thirty-one years old and he had decided to have his last boxing match and then retire. A week away, Bill Bramble was scheduled to have his last fight, the twenty-round contest with American Murphy at the National Sporting Club, for which he was training at the White Hart down the road. Mrs Bramble sends Harold for a walk but she is surprised to see her husband and her brother, Major Percy Stokes in the doorway. She is shocked to know that Bill has decided not to fight and there is lot of discussion regarding his decision with Percy Stokes. Mrs Bramble makes it clear that this step was unacceptable to her, even if she did not like her husband 's profession. Bill Bramble was supposed to win five hundred pounds, and one hundred and twenty, even if he lost. This money was very much needed to cater to Harold 's education. The trainer, Jerry Fisher, enters at this juncture and he is also shocked to discover that Bill has decided to back out at the eleventh hour. Jerry begs, pleads, cries and tempts Bill but he is steadfast in his decision because this fight will be covered by all newspapers and Harold will discover this secret. Tempers are running high, and at this critical moment, Harold makes his entry. Mr Jerry Fisher feels cheated, he wants his revenge. So he spills over the entire story to Harold, despite all opposition. Bill feels let down in front of his son and tells him frankly that he was not a man of wrath but just a professional boxer and he is withdrawing from his last match. Harold who had been watching all, suddenly surprises everyone. He is angry with his parents for hiding this secret but the content of his speech takes everyone 's breath away. Harold reveals that he was betting his pocket money on the defeat of Jimmy Murphy and his friends would have been awefully proud of him, had they known that his father was 'Young Porky '. He even requests for a photograph of his father to impress his friends. This talk encourages Jerry Fischer and Bill also goes to complete his training. Harold reverts back to playing games with his mother and continues with his affectionate chat.

Keeping It From Harold by P.G.Wodehouse is a story about worried parents of Harold, an exceptionally brilliant ten years old child. Human mind sometimes travels beyond the possible and imagines and fears more than necessary. Harold had defied the Bramble laws of hereditary by excelling in academics rather than in sports. His father was a professional heavy weight boxer while he, at the age of 10, had taken the spelling and dictation prize last term on his head. A spectacled child who was so devoted to his books, such a model of behaviour, so altogether admirable. And it was this that prevented his parents, who were lovers of truth, to conceal the fact of his father 's profession. When Harold was a baby, it had not mattered much. However, when he grew up with such a fine intellect, into a model of goodness, even the senior curate of the parish suggested Mrs. and Mr. Bramble to keep the truth from Harold. It was a possible negative effect on his academics and the idea of the fact bringing embarrassment to Harold that everybody feared, made them all to behave in such a fashion.

Mrs.Bramble was too much concerned about Harold coming to know about his father 's profession. However, there were other concerns too that she was worried about. Although Mrs. Bramble never liked Mr.Bramble 's profession but the fact remained that it earned them a good deal of money, which made it easy for them to provide Harold with the best of education till then. Mrs.Bramble even remarked that the education they have provided to Harold was as good as education provided to a Duke. Just that day her brother Major Percy came with Bill Bramble breaking the news that Bill was not to fight the final fight with the American Murphy. The news drowned Mrs. Bramble into sorrow as the fight was going to earn him five hundred pounds. Even if he lost, he would have been given a hundred and twenty pounds. The money would have been enough for them to give Harold a good start in his education. Mrs. Bramble was so upset about how she was to manage her son 's education. Her financial worries were disturbing her deeply. She was so sure of the money that Mr. Bramble was to bring home the next week over his victory she was already celebrating in her heart. The news of him quitting the fight broke all her hopes of a better tomorrow.

The climax of the story is filled with chaos and irony. Mr. Bramble 's coach, Jerry Fisher, in anger, spilled the truth of his father 's profession in front of Harold. However, the reaction of Harold, when the truth was revealed, took all by surprise. Harold felt so proud that it was his father after all who was named Young Pork. Irony here was the fact that he was upset and annoyed that his parents had kept the truth from him all the while.

KEEPING IT FROM HAROLD

 
In the story ‘Keeping it from Harold’, P. G. Wodehouse shows that parents’ perceptions about their children’s world can vary dramatically from the reality.

Talented at ten
Ten-year-old Harold is already gifted with a fine intellect and sensitive personality. Born into a middle-class family, he studies well, wins prizes at spelling and dictation competitions and sings in the choir. His mother, Jane Bramble, wonders how she and her husband, ordinary but honest folks, came to have such a cultured little person for a son. They cherish the child to the point of worshipping him.
The story begins with Harold asking his mother to listen to his recitation of a poem. After what is probably a perfect rendering, Jane tells Harold to go for a walk to refresh himself. The boy goes out, quietly closing the door behind him.

Forced to lie
At this point, the story unfolds—Jane and her husband, Bill, are labouring to keep a  secret from their son: the facts about Bill’s profession. The reader is taken to the past: It was Jane who first told Bill that the truth should not be revealed to the boy, as he was much too refined to accept that his father was a professional boxer. The couple got the same advice from others. So, they lied to him that Bill was a travelling salesman.
It is no surprise that Bill accepted the advice: he is mild-mannered and accommodating. Thus, a good man is made to conceal from his own child the truth about his line of work.

Proud of the past
Before Harold was born, Bill had been proud to be a boxer. He enjoyed his reputation as ‘Young Porky’. Once Harold came into this world and began to understand the world around him, Bill felt he had to practise his trade in secret to avoid shaming the boy.
Harold had grown up, unmindful of this domestic drama played out for his benefit. He had been told that his father worked as a tradesman, and that was it as far as he was concerned. He had his studies and hobbies to worry about.

Relief in sight
Now, back to the present: With her boy out for a walk, Jane resumes her task of darning a sock. She has more peace of mind these days, since her husband has promised that next week’s bout with an American boxer, Murphy, would be his last. Bill, at 31, has decided to retire and take up a position as a school or college instructor.

A sudden decision
At that point, Jane’s brother, Major Percy Stokes, a meddlesome character, walks in gingerly and asks whether Harold is around, indicating that what is about to be said is not for the boy’s ears. Percy is followed by Bill, whose appearance surprises Jane, as he is supposed to be training at the White Hart. Percy declares he has made Bill agree to retire immediately for Harold’s sake and not to fight Murphy. Bill confirms this is true. Now all Jane can think of is how the family will make ends meet if her husband gives up the sport.

Against the decision
Bill’s trainer, Jerry Fisher, appears, looking for him. When he sees Percy, he realises that it is Percy who has tricked Bill into stopping training. Fisher itches to fight Percy, but somehow restrains himself. Fisher tries to persuade Bill to change his mind, but to no avail. Bill explains that his bout with Murthy, as an important contest, will be reported in the major newspapers and that Harold is sure to come to know.

All is revealed
At the mention of Harold’s name, he happens to return from his walk. He asks what is going on. Fisher lets the cat out of the bag, telling Harold that his father is a boxer, well known as ‘Young Porky’. Bill feels Fisher has let him down, and Percy attempts to save the situation by explaining that Bill has called off the bout with Murphy.
Surprisingly, the second disclosure, about Young Porky’s withdrawal, seems to anger Harold more than the first disclosure as he reveals himself as an ardent follower of boxing after all. Harold exclaims that he has studied form and bet all his pocket money that Young Porky would finish off Murphy, and now he would lose the bet.

A boxing expert
Later, he also rebukes his father for concealing his real identity and rues that he has not been able to gain from his father’s popularity. Harold describes his father’s pulling out of the contest as the ‘silliest idea’. He could have beaten the top boxers and acquired national fame, the boy says. Fisher compliments Harold for his insight. He tells Bill that they better get back to White Hart and Bill follows him quietly.

The couple got the same advice from others. So, they lied to him that Bill was a travelling salesman.
It is no surprise that Bill accepted the advice: he is mild-mannered and accommodating. Thus, a good man is made to conceal from his own child the truth about his line of work.

Proud of the past
Before Harold was born, Bill had been proud to be a boxer. He enjoyed his reputation as ‘Young Porky’. Once Harold came into this world and began to understand the world around him, Bill felt he had to practise his trade in secret to avoid shaming the boy.
Harold had grown up, unmindful of this domestic drama played out for his benefit. He had been told that his father worked as a tradesman, and that was it as far as he was concerned. He had his studies and hobbies to worry about.

Relief in sight
Now, back to the present: With her boy out for a walk, Jane resumes her task of darning a sock. She has more peace of mind these days, since her husband has promised that next week’s bout with an American boxer, Murphy, would be his last. Bill, at 31, has decided to retire and take up a position as a school or college instructor.

A sudden decision
At that point, Jane’s brother, Major Percy Stokes, a meddlesome character, walks in gingerly and asks whether Harold is around, indicating that what is about to be said is not for the boy’s ears. Percy is followed by Bill, whose appearance surprises Jane, as he is supposed to be training at the White Hart. Percy declares he has made Bill agree to retire immediately for Harold’s sake and not to fight Murphy. Bill confirms this is true. Now all Jane can think of is how the family will make ends meet if her husband gives up the sport.

Against the decision
Bill’s trainer, Jerry Fisher, appears, looking for him. When he sees Percy, he realises that it is Percy who has tricked Bill into stopping training. Fisher itches to fight Percy, but somehow restrains himself. Fisher tries to persuade Bill to change his mind, but to no avail. Bill explains that his bout with Murthy, as an important contest, will be reported in the major newspapers and that Harold is sure to come to know.

All is revealed
At the mention of Harold’s name, he happens to return from his walk. He asks what is going on. Fisher lets the cat out of the bag, telling Harold that his father is a boxer, well known as ‘Young Porky’. Bill feels Fisher has let him down, and Percy attempts to save the situation by explaining that Bill has called off the bout with Murphy.
Surprisingly, the second disclosure, about Young Porky’s withdrawal, seems to anger Harold more than the first disclosure as he reveals himself as an ardent follower of boxing after all. Harold exclaims that he has studied form and bet all his pocket money that Young Porky would finish off Murphy, and now he would lose the bet.

A boxing expert
Later, he also rebukes his father for concealing his real identity and rues that he has not been able to gain from his father’s popularity. Harold describes his father’s pulling out of the contest as the ‘silliest idea’. He could have beaten the top boxers and acquired national fame, the boy says. Fisher compliments Harold for his insight. He tells Bill that they better get back to White Hart and Bill follows him quietly.
With the topic of boxing having concluded, thoughts of his studies come back to Harold and he asks his mother to listen to his recitation once again

KEEPING IT FROM HAROLD
                    –P. G. Wodehouse

 
In the story ‘Keeping it from Harold’, P. G. Wodehouse shows that parents’ perceptions about their children’s world can vary dramatically from the reality.

Talented at ten
Ten-year-old Harold is already gifted with a fine intellect and sensitive personality. Born into a middle-class family, he studies well, wins prizes at spelling and dictation competitions and sings in the choir. His mother, Jane Bramble, wonders how she and her husband, ordinary but honest folks, came to have such a cultured little person for a son. They cherish the child to the point of worshipping him.
The story begins with Harold asking his mother to listen to his recitation of a poem. After what is probably a perfect rendering, Jane tells Harold to go for a walk to refresh himself. The boy goes out, quietly closing the door behind him.

Forced to lie
At this point, the story unfolds—Jane and her husband, Bill, are labouring to keep a  secret from their son: the facts about Bill’s profession. The reader is taken to the past: It was Jane who first told Bill that the truth should not be revealed to the boy, as he was much too refined to accept that his father was a professional boxer. The couple got the same advice from others. So, they lied to him that Bill was a travelling salesman.
It is no surprise that Bill accepted the advice: he is mild-mannered and accommodating. Thus, a good man is made to conceal from his own child the truth about his line of work.

 Mr and Mrs Bramble were immensely proud of their son Harold. Harold was ten years old, a prodigy and an exceptional child by all standards. An intellectual, he won prizes in competitions. He was very classy and so superior that even his parents developed a complex. Harold was a model of excellent behaviour and he respected his parents a lot. Mr Bramble was a professional boxer and had been proud of his fame but ever since Harold was born, he had kept this as a secret. Harold was told that his father was a commercial traveller. Mr Bramble who had thrived on his feats in the boxing ring, trembled to see his name in print now. Both Mr and Mrs Bramble were secretly a little afraid of their son and did not wish to fall in his esteem. Mr Bramble was already thirty-one years old and he had decided to have his last boxing match and then retire. A week away, Bill Bramble was scheduled to have his last fight, the twenty-round contest with American Murphy at the National Sporting Club, for which he was training at the White Hart down the road.
Mrs Bramble sends Harold for a walk but she is surprised to see her husband and her brother, Major Percy Stokes in the doorway. She is shocked to know that Bill has decided not to fight and there is lot of discussion regarding his decision with Percy Stokes. Mrs Bramble makes it clear that this step was unacceptable to her, even if she did not like her husband 's profession. Bill Bramble was supposed to win five hundred pounds, and one hundred and twenty, even if he lost. This money was very much needed to cater to Harold 's education. The trainer, Jerry Fisher, enters at this juncture and he is also shocked to discover that Bill has decided to back out at the eleventh hour.
Jerry begs, pleads, cries and tempts Bill but he is steadfast in his decision because this fight will be covered by all newspapers and Harold will discover this secret. Tempers are running high, and at this critical moment, Harold makes his entry. Mr Jerry Fisher feels cheated, he wants his revenge. So he spills over the entire story to Harold, despite all opposition. Bill feels let down in front of his son and tells him frankly that he was not a man of wrath but just a professional boxer and he is withdrawing from his last match. Harold who had been watching all, suddenly surprises everyone. He is angry with his parents for hiding this secret but the content of his speech takes everyone 's breath away. Harold reveals that he was betting his pocket money on the defeat of Jimmy Murphy and his friends would have been awefully proud of him, had they known that his father was 'Young Porky '. He even requests for a photograph of his father to impress his friends. This talk encourages Jerry Fischer and Bill also goes to complete his training. Harold reverts back to playing games with his mother and continues with his affectionate chat.
