Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)

Write a brief character-sketch of George in the novel “Three Men in a Boat”

other than this

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.

George was a bank clerk who was rather an introvert. He had a penchant for sleeping during most of the day, often during the working hours of his bank. On Saturdays they propped George outside at two. Living in a small back room, his land lady suggested that they move in together. They started a fabulous friendship. George never married but went on to become manager of Barclays Bank in the Strand.

the mail character of the story is George. in my opinion, he is very experienced and educated man. he finds a way to solve all the problems, and he knows how to behave in kind of situation. he is very cool and never panics under stress. George emerges as the leader who takes decision and his friends follow him. throughout the story one notices :George said George did something he takes initiative in solving all problems.also, he is brave but on the other hand prefers to be on the safe side and be careful. George is very economical and has a practical approach to life. he is quite mature of his age.

George was the quietest person of all. In my opinion, he is an well educated person as he tries to solve the problem and he also speaks in medical terminology and he was the most sensible man among the three of them. He is cool and never panics under stress. He took the lead throughout the story. He is brave but on the other hand wants to be in safe side and be careful. The health problem he was suffering was that he was overweight.

george is the best person as he is very hepful and-

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 labor.

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.

A book called " Three Men In A Boat"

Thanks to you all

This helps me a lot

Gorge works for a bank. Like the other two friends of his , he hate work and is quite vain his friends think that he only sleep in the bank . George is a dominant person who loves the sound of his own voice. he knows a little about the sea, but in reality it is quite opposite.

Gorge doesn't seem to have fashion sense , which is evident from the loud coloured blazer hr has . He is dependent on others to lead him. Gorge likes laughing on others but doesn't take killed on himself to well.
