The Book of Snobs is a compilation of satirical works by William Makepeace Thackeray, originally published as The Snobs of England, By One of Themselves in the journal Punch. The book was serialized in 1846/47, at the same time as Vanity Fair, and was published in 1848. While the term “snob” had been in use since the end of the 18th century, Thackeray’s use of it to describe people who look down on those who are “socially inferior” quickly became common.

William m. thackeray – the book of snobs (3/45

On the basis of historical examples, the author shows that when a country is in need, the right man appears to save the people. He describes himself as the Man who will carry out the requisite Work in which “Snobs will be studied like other natural science artifacts” (p. 403). He emphasizes that snobs are a common phenomenon that affects all social groups. He uses the example of Colonel Snobley, an obnoxious snob, whom he drove from his restaurant table by simply using his fork as a toothpick.
Mr George Marrowfat, a worthy friend who had previously saved the author’s life, died. With the aid of his knife, the author discovered his habit of eating peas. Marrowfat was a relative snob, who was snobbish only on some occasions, rather than a positive snob who was snobbish in everything he did. The author had no choice but to end their relationship because he was an English gentleman, a Christian, and a morally upright person. Only after the author learned that Marrowfat had changed his eating habits was their relationship restored. The moral of the story is that one must follow the laws of society, whatever they are, and smile while doing so.

William Makepeace Thackeray’s The Book of Snobs is a series of satirical works published in book form in 1848, the same year as his more popular Vanity Fair. The pieces first appeared in the satirical journal Punch as “The Snobs of England, by one of themselves” in fifty-three weekly installments from February 28, 1846 to February 27, 1847. The bits, which were hugely successful and propelled Thackeray into the public eye, were “rigorously updated” before being collected in book form, with the exception of the numbers 17–23, which dealt with then-current political issues. 1st

Everybody is a snob in their own way. The most important thing is to find out what kind of snob you are and then recognize your mistake. Thackeray has created a natural background of snobs that aids in their recognition. This book will save you years in therapy if you read it carefully.
I considered this book to be amusing and in some respects enlightening. It was sent to me by a friend who knows I am a snob about several things (hopefully with humor!). Thackeray addresses the stereotypical “snob” of any sort of character you can think of. He does so with wit and humor, as well as short rapier cuts that often show the bone! Military snobs, university snobs, great city snobs, aristocratic snobs, country snobs, dining-out snobs, and literary snobs are among the different classes. (Given to me by a friend who knows I’m a snob about a lot of stuff (hopefully with a sense of humour! ), I found this book amusing and enlightening in certain respects. Thackeray addresses the stereotypical “snob” of any sort of character you can think of. He does so with wit and humor, as well as short rapier cuts that often show the bone! Military snobs, university snobs, great city snobs, aristocratic snobs, country snobs, dining-out snobs, literary snobs (ouch! that one hit a nerve! ), and even English snobs on the continent are among the numerous classes. Since they provide such a rich vein, some of these groups get more than one chapter! Although Thackeray contains clerical snobs, I found that he offers a very welcome protection of the clergy. Although caricatures exist in any community of people, Thackeray recognizes that the clerics’ work is more critical and less vulnerable to ridicule.
