`Why should I not publish my diary? I have often seen reminiscences of people I have never even heard of, and I fail to see - because I do not happen to be a `Somebody' - why my diary should not be interesting.'The Diary of a Nobody (1892) created a cultural icon, an English archetype. Anxious, accident-prone, occasionally waspish, Charles Pooter has come to be seen as the epitome of English suburban life. His diary chronicles encounters with difficult tradesmen, the delights of home improvements, smallparties, minor embarrassments, and problems with his troublesome son. The suburban world he inhabits is hilariously and painfully familiar in its small-mindedness and its essential decency.

The diary of a nobody is a work of the collaborative effort of the Grossmith brothers, George Grossmith(1847-1912) and Weedon Grossmith (1854-1919).

George Grossmith wasa singer, comedian and an actor who shone in many principal roles in the light operas of that other artistic pair Gilbert and Sullivan light operas at Savoy Theater. Weedon Grossmith was an a painter, playwright, actor and writer. Together they wrote the comic Victorian novel The diary of a nobody.

While in contemporary literature mock or even fully serious biographies of insignificant persons is a standard feature of literary output, spoofing the genre back then created an hilarious uproar. Published in 1892 it established a whole new genre of humorous fiction.

The diary of a nobody contains illustrations made by Weedon Grossmith.

I am not such a great fan of humorous fiction, but as a classic of Victorian literature, I thought is was still quite worthwhile. ( )

I’m dithering! How many stars does this diary deserve? I really enjoyed the reading. The language was perfect for the narrator. The characters well rounded. The humour very much in the ilk of P.G. Wodehouse. The story however, wasn’t ground breaking or earth shattering or instructive. It was however, an excellent, quite ridiculous, utterly charming diary of a nobody! Dither no more girl..... I’ve changed my rating from 3 to 4 stars. ( )

Un libro comico, primera edicion en 1892 y desde entonces se ha reeditado sin parar.
Lei esto y pense que este libro tenia que ser la risa total. Pero la mayor hilaridad parece provenir de que el protagonista que es de clase media-baja se las quiere dar de altivo y tener los modales y vida de gente de mas alta alcurnia no llegando a conseguirlo
Y no es mi humor, ademas que como el titulo indica, no pasa nada destacado, algun cambio de trabajo, algun amigo que se enfada, un cambio de pintura, etc.
Es interesante para comprender la sociedad y modales de la epoca pero no me lo volveria a leer. ( )

A classic which I first read as a teen, surprising my then English teacher when I chose it from the school library. Loved it then, adored it now. Perhaps surprisingly, it first appeared in Punch magazine in the late 1800s. Though simplistic — a middle-class gentleman seems to think his diary has as much chance to see publication as anyone else’s — it’s an exaggerated, humorous look at society and social observations, yet contains an underlying sadness. Part of the fun (and less cheery tone) comes from the things Mr Pooter finds so amusing and which plainly are not. The tale remains charming, and the illustrations delightful. ( )

My dear wife Carrie and I have just been a week in our new house, "The Laurels," Brickfield Terrace, Holloway -- a nice six-roomed residence, not counting basement, with a front breakfast-parlour.

He may wear what he likes in the future, for I shall never drive with him again. His conduct was shocking. When we passed Highgate Archway, he tried to pass everything and everybody. He shouted to respectable people who were walking quietly in the road to get out of the way; he flicked at the horse of an old man who was riding, causing it to rear; and, as I had to ride backwards, I was compelled to face a gang of roughs in a donkey-cart, whom Lupin had chaffed, and who turned and followed us for nearly a mile, bellowing, indulging in coarse jokes and laughter, to say nothing of occasionally pelting us with orange-peel.
"It was mentioned in the Bicycle News."
I told Sarah not to bring up the blanc-mange again for breakfast. It seems to have been placed on our table at every meal since Wednesday… In spite of my instructions, that blanc-mange was brought up again for supper. To make matters worse, there had been an attempt to disguise it, by placing it in a glass dish with jam round it...I told Carrie, when we were alone, if that blanc-mange were placed on the table again I should walk out of the house.
