A Modest Proposal

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I first came in contact with Swift’s Modest Proposal in school where we read certain passages. I was immediately smitten with the nice way in which he wrote his satire. It is so businesslike that it is almost hard at first glance not to agree with his arguments and business strategy. That is, of course, only until you stop for a moment to consider what he has just proposed.

This collection shows it nicely, I would certainly recommend reading it.
