Product description

Book Description

This selection of Jonathan Swift poems, chosen by Derek Mahon, is a timely reminder of the huge talents Swift possessed as a poet, extending far beyond the masterpiece for which he is known, Gulliver's Travels. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was born in Dublin, of English parents, and educated at Trinity College Dublin. London-based for many years, and a noted satirist during the reign of Queen Anne, he returned to Dublin in 1713 as Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Gulliver's Travels appeared in 1726. Derek Mahon was born in Belfast in 1941, studied at Trinity College, Dublin, and has held journalistic and academic appointments in London and New York. He has received numerous awards including a Lannan Award and the Scot Moncrieff Translation Prize. His Collected Poems was published in 1999. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
