Overview

A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift

A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People From Being a Burden on Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Publick, commonly referred to as A Modest Proposal, is a Juvenalian satirical essay written and published anonymously by Jonathan Swift in 1729. Swift suggests that impoverished Irish might ease their economic troubles by selling their children as food for rich gentlemen and ladies. This satirical hyperbole mocks heartless attitudes towards the poor, as well as Irish policy in general.

This is an amazing book. we read it in school and it seems to me that this man thought very strongly for the government. obviously, but he shows the ups and downs of the government and exctly how he feels about it.

I thought this was the actual book. I purchased it in Nook format. Seriously disappointed. 22 pages & it's just an overview. It's only a buck but that's crap.

Glad to see pundits were just as entertaining in the 1700 's as they are now

she looked at him. How the he<3>ll did you get in here. The tardis door is deadlock sealed (you cant pick it. I made sure of that. Not even the doctor could breach this tardis with his idiotic screwdriver can get in) and the tardis would never let you in. Especially not here...... no one is allowed in here except me. Ever. Even when i was just a couple thousand years old, back on jesthiva, my twin sister wasnt allowed in here. The royal familys personal chambers were never to be disturbed.
