Jonathan Swift is one of the greatest satirists ever to have lived, if not the best, and here we have a great selection. From the opening piece on why mankind resembles brooms, to eating the poor children of Ireland Swift stretches his imagination and brain. Looking at religion, politics and economy amongst other things he is always intelligent as well as witty. He looks at puns as well and gives us excellent satire, parody and word play.
Although Swift was looking at and writing about what was happening in his age you don't necessarily have to be well versed in the history of the time, although a little understanding, especially as regards Ireland is of help. Because mankind will never change, we all have the same thoughts and emotions, we all see stupidity and injustice around us Swift is still relevant to us in this day and age, and lets be honest always will be, thus making his writings immortal.
