Lord Chesterfield (Anthology)
1.0 10.0mb

To some the perfect gentleman's manual, to others the testimony of an age of duality an hypocrisy, by any regard Lord Chesterfield's letters to his son stand the test of time thanks to the undeniable intelligence of their author, his original views on the world, and his easy expression and sense of humor.

Written along a period of thirty years, these letters were never intended for publication, what makes their language very current and down to earth, and the ideas fresh and unencumbered by any kind of political correctness.

This brief anthology brings a selection of Lord Chestefield's most relevant and amusing aphorisms, regarding issues as timeless as human relations, the use of time, male and female nature, setting limits for work and leisure, or the art of conversation, among others.
