Jerome K. Jerome is an English writer of the turn of the century. He is known especially for his humorous novels and travelogues, mainly his Three Men in a Boat which has made his fame and wealth. His work entitled Clocks is a humorous essay that speaks about his personal experience with clocks. In fact, the essay is an informal, entertaining investigation of the place of clocks in our modern life. It is the perfect clocks that always disappoint us according to Jerome, rather than wrong clocks. Jerome describes a modern life where people are in a continuous struggle with time while the latter always ends up winning the fight.
