Directions to Servants, Paperback Book

Directions to Servants Paperback

Part of the Alma Quirky Classics series


A tongue-in-cheek manual on how servants should cope with the demands of their masters and perform their tasks in ways that will best satisfy their indolence, wastefulness and greed, Directions to Servants takes a caustic and irreverent look at master-servant relations.

Written towards the end of his writing career and published posthumously, this pamphlet shows Swift - who was himself known to be strict but fair to his own servants, as illustrated in the Appendix to this volume - at his witty and mischievous best.
