Lord Emsworth is one of the best-known characters created by the notable British humorist P.G. Wodehouse (1881 – 1975). A somewhat bedraggled and befogged backwoods peer, the proprietor of Blandings Castle makes his first appearance in a 1915 novel, Something Fresh, and remains markedly unchanged over the next course of the next 55 years of novels and short stories in which he and his prize pig, the Empress of Blandings, attempt to lead quiet lives amid the turmoil of the convoluted plots into which Wodehouse constantly throws them.
