Annotations

The members of the Yahoo! Blandings group have, for many years, undertaken the mammoth task of annotating Wodehouse’s books. The late Terry Mordue presented his portion of the work on his own website, now hosted here at Madame Eulalie. But there are, and hopefully will continue to be, others in the field as well — Mark Hodson, John Dawson, Ian Michaud, Lynn Vesley-Gross, and others as listed below have made contributions to this effort. We present a list of the annotations here, for easy access. In addition, some of the serializations on this site have been annotated; links to the opening episodes of those are preceded by the symbol ✏ in the list below. Annotations to the short stories on this site are continually being added as well; the symbol ✎ in the menus for each periodical indicates an item with significant end notes. Contact us if you are interested in contributing to the annotation effort.
