Directions to Servants (Hesperus Classics) - used book

ISBN: 1843910624

ID: 3544056

Directions to Servants is one of Jonathan Swift's last completed works. It displays all his caustic skill as a satirist and his unerring eye for the little annoyances of life. Taking the form of a handbook of manners, and addressed to each servant individually, Directions to Servants is the ultimate upstairs/downstairs battle. With scathing wit, Swift pits master against servant in an endless struggle for order, frugality, and the best bits of the roast. His servants are lazy, profligate, and acquisitive?always on the lookout for a shilling to be made on the sale of leftovers, or a half-bottle of wine to share with the cook. Written in Swift's final years of sanity, Directions to Servants is a last hilarious outpouring of cynicism at a lifetime's accumulation of poor service. Irish clergyman and satirist Jonathan Swift is best remembered for his philosophical parody Gulliver's Travels. business and professional,criticism and theory,english literature,essays,essays and correspondence,history and criticism,humanities,humor,humor and entertainment,humor and satire Humor & Entertainment, Hesperus Press

Directions to Servants

ISBN:

"Directions to Servants" is one of Jonathan Swift's last completed works. It displays all his caustic skill as a satirist and his unerring eye for the little annoyances of life. Taking the form of a handbook of manners, and addressed to each servant individually, "Directions to Servant"s is the ultimate upstairs/downstairs battle. With scathing wit, Swift pits master against servant in an endless struggle for order, frugality, and the best bits of the roast. His servants are lazy, profligate, and acquisitive--always on the lookout for a shilling to be made on the sale of leftovers, or a half-bottle of wine to share with the cook. Written in Swift's final years of sanity, "Directions to Servants" is a last hilarious outpouring of cynicism at a lifetime's accumulation of poor service. Irish clergyman and satirist Jonathan Swift is best remembered for his philosophical parody "Gulliver's Travels."
