This paper looks at Jonathan Swift who played many roles within his lifetime as a politician and a patriot, as a satirist and as a clergyman. It looks at how his colorful life and satire could be seen his his various works such as "Gulliver's Travels", "A Modest Proposal" and "Genteel and Ingenious Conversation".

From the Paper:

"The work, 'Gulliver's Travels, was published in 1726, and was one of the first works of prose attempted by Jonathan, and although the work was labeled as a children's book, it is in reality a great satire on the times of the day, which most children have failed to understand down the ages. This book, in fact, shows Jonathan's desire to make people delve deeper into issues, and not lie back and take everything for granted, as people did in those days, and when any one reader was indeed able to read deeper into the book, it was possible for him to match all the situations within the book with real current events and affairs and several long-term problems that had been re-occurring in the society."
