Jonathan Swift Quotes

Jonathan Swift (1667 – 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, poet and cleric. He attended Dublin University (Trinity College, Dublin). Swift was studying for his master’s degree when political troubles in Ireland surrounding the “Glorious Revolution” forced him to leave for England in 1688. He became increasingly active politically over the years. He is remembered for works such as A Tale of a Tub (1704), An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity (1712), Gulliver’s Travels (1726), and A Modest Proposal (1729). He originally published all of his works under pseudonyms or anonymously.
