"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." Directions to Servants Swift, Jonathan / Toibin, Colm, Hesperus Press
