Swift reveals his satirical genius in this witty collection of prose that includes such popular works as A Modest Proposal and A Tale of a Tub. The surprising, sometimes perverse humor and stinging mockery, are the hallmarks not only of a master satirist, but of a skilled controversialist and public spirit, someone intensely concerned with engaging pressing issues and affecting his audience in certain ways. The art of satire has rarely provoked more controversy and had such lasting effect.
