MDPodcast 027 – JEEVES IS UNIEK – afl. 08 – De Zuiverheid van de Sport

De meeste verhalen van Jeeves & Wooster spelen zich af in de grote stad, Londen of New York, maar er zijn ook prachtige bij die op het Engelse platteland spelen, zoals het verhaal van deze week. De sfeer wordt prachtig getekend, bijvoorbeeld die van ‘evensong‘ in de dorpskerk.
Maar het gaat in dit verhaal om het gokken op de wedstrijden tijdens het ‘schoolfeest’ in Twing, zo’n bijeenkomst met allerlei kraampjes en een thee-tent en zaklopen en kokosnootwerpen en dergelijke. Als ik in Engeland ben vind ik het altijd heerlijk om zoiets bij te wonen. In Nederland heb je tegenwoordig weleens een ‘Engelse Fair’ waar ze dat proberen na te bootsen, wat dan meestal niet helemaal lukt. Vaak te commercieel. Een gunstige uitzondering daarop is de jaarlijkse ‘fair’ (in september) van de Anglicaanse kerk (St. Mary’s Chapel) bij Kasteel Weldam in Goor. Daar kan de Anglofiel – en dat zijn de meeste Wodehousianen toch ook – zijn hart ophalen en zich heel gelukkig voelen.
