5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must For Swift Lovers April 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Swift's "modest" proposal has been talked about for centuries. Because some readers may not have learned of it yet, I won't say exactly what it is, as I don't want to spoil the fun for those readers encountering Swift for the first time. I only want to say that if you've read Swift's Gulliver's Travels, then you will almost certainly want to read A Modest Proposal. It will certainly help demostrate the uniqueness, literary skill and bold imagination of this gifted author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still holds up February 15, 2014

This piece of satire holds up over time. We still have the same issues surrounding poverty in our modern era. Every conservative politician should be required to read this essay and ponder their attitudes.
