Sammanfattning: The novels written by P.G Wodehouse that feature the characters Jeeves and Wooster are lighthearted and comedic. They revolve around an upper class young man and his struggle to remain a bachelor. However, according to the literary theorist Fredric Jameson: even if texts do not aspire to promote ideologies they still do. It will be this essay's aim to see what kind of ideologies are promoted in three of P.G Wodehouse's novels. Of interest is also to explore how these ideologies blend and intermingle with each other and with the aspect of gender. The findings of this essay are that one cannot simply rely on just a social class aspect or a gender aspect in order to interpret the text and its ideological and political substance since social class, ideology, politics and gender are closely linked to each other.
