 About the Book 

This volume of Swifts work is unique in selecting from the full range of the prose, poetry, and letters spanning an active fifty-year writing career. The presentation of his work, being chronological rather than thematic, gives a much clearer feeling of how Swifts ideas developed and were expressed in different styles of writing. Some of the more familiar literary and satirical pieces, such as A Tale of a Tub and The Battle of the Books, as well as political pamphlets, pieces for the popular press, and a good sample of correspondance, notably in his Journal to Stella, provides a lively commentary on the turbulent events of the time. There is no doubt that Swiftss certain uncommon way of thinking inspired, teased, and affronted his own, and future generations.
