Expedition of the Endurance
Although the subject matter of his work is deliberately light, Wodehouse has earned passionate praise from prestigious contemporary and later colleagues, and he is generally acknowledged as one of the masters of English prose.
At Dulwich College he proved himself a brilliant pupil, both in scholarship and in sport. He was prefect of the College, a member of Class VI Classics (reserved for the best pupils), edited the student newspaper, acted in various dramatic works, was elected to the first cricket team and to the first rugby team of the College, represented the institution in boxing and the residence to which he belonged in athletics. Wodehouse greatly enjoyed that period of his life, as reflected in his college short stories and novels, which cover the first stage of his literary output.
During World War I, Wodehouse, residing in New York, tried on more than one occasion to enlist in the Allied forces, but was always rejected because of his eyesight problems, which had already begun in the days of Dulwich College and had forced him to abandon boxing.
