Summary

First published in 1969, this title examines the works of Jonathan Swift from both a literary and an historical perspective. W. A. Speck first presents Swift in his historical context, analysing in particular the interplay between his religious and political views. Light is thrown on the early pamphlets as well as on A Tale of a Tub and Gulliver’s Travels, alongside a fascinating chapter by Philip Roberts considering Swift’s poetry. This illuminating title will be of value to any literature students with an interest in the writings of Swift and the historical context in which he worked.
