☯ Full Synopsis : "This book offers an accessible, single-volume introduction to a wider range of Jonathan Swift's writing than is usually covered in such treatments of him. Primarily a work of biographically-inflected literary criticism, it draws on insights furnished by feminist and postcolonial literary theories when those are relevant. Its portrait of this charismatic writer confronts the complexities in character, style, and rhetorical posture that make him enduring and important. Swift is situated as a career-clergyman rather than an imaginative writer, whose ecclesiastical politics, geographical and national situation in Ireland, and obliquities of temperament made him the challenging writer he was. Commencing with an account of the domestic and foreign contexts in which Swift's life was rooted, the book provides a chronological account of that life, putting appropriate emphasis on its controversial and contested nature. His writing is examined chronologically, progressing through his early writing, early religious satire, English political and personal writings, and the Irish phase of his life and writing. Intersecting those sequential chapters are thematic and textual chapters. The thematic chapters engage with the nature of Swift's religion and of his relationships with women. Textual chapters are devoted to Swift's too often neglected poetic achievement and to Gulliver's Travels. The book's privileging of Gulliver's Travels needs no apology: this is still the work of fiction upon which Swift's reputation as an imaginative writer rests. Two full chapters are accorded to it in which it is restored to the Irish context of its composition. Additionally, in the chapter on Swift's Irish religious and political writings, the missing religious dimension of Gulliver's Travels - a work that draws on Utopian writing and might have said something about Utopian religion - is considered as part of an analysis of Swift's religious vocation."Article| Brean S.

☯ Full Synopsis : "In response to the dire economic conditions in eighteenth-century Ireland, A Modest Proposal ironically exhorts the poor to provide their offspring as food to the rich. Skilfully applying a wealth of classical rhetorical techniques, Swift's satirical tour de force takes a savage swipe at the selfishness of the ruling classes and the heartlessness of the various utilitarian solutions put forward by contemporary thinkers.In addition to this seminal piece, this volume includes other humorous and polemical writings - which, taken together, provide an invaluable introduction to Swift as a master satirist and pamphleteer.Contains: 'A Short View of the State of Ireland', 'A Modest Proposal', 'The Present State of Ireland Considered' and 'An Examination of Certain Abuses, Corruptions and Enormities in the City of Dublin'"Article| Jonathan Swift| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Jonathan Swift (30 November 1667 - 19 October 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. Swift is remembered for works such as A Tale of a Tub (1704), An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity (1712), Gulliver's Travels (1726), and A Modest Proposal (1729). He is regarded by the Encyclopædia Britannica as the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. He originally published all of his works under pseudonyms - such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, M. B. Drapier - or anonymously. He was a master of two styles of satire, the Horatian and Juvenalian styles."Article| Jonathan Jonathan Swift| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Swift?s Narrative Satires is an analysis of one of the major critical controversies about Swift?s works: the relationship of author to text. Everett Zimmerman questions the conventional claim that narrative satire is necessarily a vehicle for conveying final judgments. He maintains instead that Swift requires the reader to search for the principle of authority that validates the satire, thereby implicitly challenging the authority of any author."Article| Everett Zimmerman| Statement ..."
