"A Modest Proposal" is definitely the strongest work here. And given how it is written, I can believe that people reading it today might not understand that it is satire--though how they can miss it being announced as satire on the cover of every volume it is in, in the intro, in every short summary, etc etc, is beyond me.

"An Argument..." and "A Discourse..." both have some good bits. "A Meditation" is clever and very short. "The Battle" requires a background in Swift's contemporaries that I simply do not have (even with the brief notes saying who they were). Also, there are parts of it missing, and there is no way to know how long or important those parts might have been to the story itself. I can see this piece being funny to those who know the many authors mentioned. ( )

So..I didn't read the WHOLE book. Only the essay, but I couldn't find just the essay (couldn't find it on the goodreads...)

From reading just that essay, I would like to read the rest though, he's hilarious. ( )

Ricordi di una "provocazione"
Quando insegnavo ricordo che, tra le tante "provocazioni" che proponevo,(qualcuno diceva che lo facevo con "sadismo"), questo "pamphlet" di J. Swift aveva uno dei primi posti. Ritrovarlo ora in versione italiana mi fa un certo effetto. Una cosa è leggere la "provocazione" di Jonathan in inglese un'altra è leggerla in italiano. Ma l'autore per me resta uno dei grandi della letteratura di tutti i tempi. Non a caso Swift lasciò scritto il suo epitaffio da essere inciso sulla sua tomba al suo trapasso: "Ubi saeva indignatio ulterius cor lacerare nequit".

Ah yes. Jonathan Swift, best known for Gulliver’s Travels (a story based on the corruption he saw around him, in modern times turned into a children's story). And Possibly A Modest Proposal (which I assume is assigned to students as an example of satire). I picked this book up for "A Modest Proposal", which I haven't read since high-school. This Dover Thrift Edition contains a number of other satirical stories - some more known than others. Unfortunately, satire works best when the reader understand the history and politics behind the story - and for me, the stories made logical sense, but I really didn't understand them.

A Modest Proposal, on the other hand - is still a masterpiece in satire. It is worth reading - Jonathan Swift is clearly a talented author - he can make Eating Babies sound both reasonable, and terrifying, at the same time. Basically, if you aren't going to help the poor in any meaningful manner, lets think out of the box to solve this problem... ( )

It is a melancholy object to those, who walk through this great town, or travel in the country, when they see the streets, the roads and cabbin-doors [sic] crowded with beggars of the female sex, followed by three, four, or six children, all in rags, and importuning every passenger for an alms.
