By M. Dowden HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
Carole Fabricant has edited this and supplied a detailed introduction. Virtually everyone must have read Gulliver's Travels or know the story, and many of us have also read A Tale of A Tub. Ms Fabricant has eschewed these to give us a selection of his other works, some of them not published in collections before. So here we have letters, as well as essays along with other works.

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.

This is an example of where kindle does not work and is a rip off. This good edition is supplied without a contents page or chapters so there is no way of finding any of the individual sections except endlessly flipping through, and YET IT is very expensive - no cheaper than the print copy that contains index, contents and all usual functions of a paper book. Kindle is brilliant where the content is designed for this reading device but a disaster for classic books or works not designed for kindle. I want my money back.
