About the Author:

About the Author Dublin-born Jonathan Swift (1667 – 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer, poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral. He is remembered for works such as A Tale of a Tub (1704), An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity (1712), Gulliver's Travels (1726), and A Modest Proposal (1729). According to Encyclopædia Britannica, he is known as the foremost prose satirist in the English language. He originally published work under pseudonyms – Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, Drapier's Letters as MB Drapier – or anonymously. His ironic writing style, particularly in A Modest Proposal, has led to such satire being subsequently termed "Swiftian".
