Baboo Jabberjee, B.A.-logo

Baboo Jabberjee, B.A.

F. Anstey

Another delightful example of an English writer poking fun at his countrymen, or maybe all races' reactions to someone from a diferent background.A series of adventures of a well educated foreigner in London which originally appeared weekly in Punch, sometimes with illustrations, dealing with the difficulties of fully understanding a different culture. The hero's perfect English reminds one of a quote from "My Fair Lady" ..."His English is too good, he said, "that clearly indicates that he is Foreign. Whereas other people are instructed in their native language English people aren't." (Summary by Annise)
