Character and Ambition of Montmorency in ‘Packing’


Next to the author Jerome K. Jerome, George and Harris is Montmorency, a funny character in the story ‘Packing’ taken from ‘Three Men in a Boat’. Adding to the intensity of fun in the story are the amusing activities of Montmorency. Montmorency is a very ambitious dog. Meddling with the affairs of others and being sworn at is his chief ambition in life. He aims to be a perfect nuisance by driving people mad. When things are thrown at him head, he feels that he has made the most of his day. He wants others to stumble over him and rebuke him steadily for an hour. Even when George and Harris are packing the hampers, Montmorency makes a mess of things by putting his leg into the jam, worrying teaspoons, and spoiling the lemons. He is the dog born with the original sin in him, according to the author Jerome K. Jerome.
