A Modest Proposal

Publication Date: December 7, 2011

Chapter: English Literature During The Restoration And The Eighteenth Century

"A Modest Proposal" is one of my favorite little works in the English canon. Honestly, it's just hilarious. What's more hilarious, however, was the girl in my English class that was horrified by the essay and thought Swift was being serious. Satire is lost on some people.

Author: Jonathan Swift • Year: 1729 • Info: Wikipedia
