Summary: This authoritative edition was originally published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It 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 a
ddition to this classic of fictional satire, Swift wrote numerous works concerning politics, religion, and Ireland, some savage (such as A Modest Proposal), others humorous, and all suffused with his tremendous wit, inventiveness, and vigour. 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.
