Product Overview

This authoritative edition brings together a unique selection from the full range of Swift''s fifty-year career--prose, poetry, and letters--to give the essence of his work and thinking. Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) is best known as the author of Gulliver''s Travels, which alone would have secured his place in the history of English literature. But in addition to this classic fictional satire, Swift wrote numerous works concerning politics, religion, and Ireland, some savage, others humorous, all suffused with his tremendous wit and inventiveness. This anthology includes satirical works such as A Tale of a Tub and The Battle of the Books, political pamphlets, pieces for the popular press, poems, and a generous selection from Swift''s correspondence. Presented chronologically, the anthology offers a new and clearer awareness of the unity as well as the complexity of Swift''s vision, and the powerful bonds between disparate pieces.
