Jonathan Swift was an Anglo-Irish author, poet, a protestant priest, secretary of the diplomat Sir William Temple. Andrew Smith said “Swift is the most difficult person to name with a word. We can say, provocateur, complicated.” His best-known novels are ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ (1726) and ‘A Modest Proposal’ (1729). Mr. Smith, “James Joyce described Swift as the greatest satirist in English Language.” His works show the power of satire, metaphor, sarcasm, and comedy. Mr. Smith, “A generation inspired by Jonathan Swift and still gives inspiration all around the world.”
