Honoria Glossop

Honoria Glossop

Honoria Glossop is a particularly formidable female from the Jeeves stories by P. G. Wodehouse. She is of a rather muscular, sporty temperament, and as such remains unattached. Honoria is the daughter of the renowned nerve specialist (i.e. loony doctor) Sir Roderick Glossop and his wife Lady Glossop.

Honoria was on many occasions in the stories engaged to Bertie Wooster, something which he, when it came to mind, disliked very much. However, he managed to shake her off by outraging her parents, thanks to the aid of his valet, Jeeves, whom she dislikes intensely. Since then, she held a torch for Bertie, and he does his best to keep as far away from her as possible.

In "Jeeves and the Greasy Bird", Honoria Glossop becomes engaged to a young modern novelist called Blair Eggelston and it looks as if Bertie is finally safe from her.

Her braying laugh is a noteworthy feature mentioned in several books, usually in elaborate similes such as "a laugh that sounded like a squadron of cavalry charging across a tin bridge."
