University of Delaware Press, 1983 - Literary Criticism - 343 pages
The nature, style, and targets of Swift's witty, biting, and sometimes violent satire are critically investigated in this collection of essays. They portray Swift's social criticism in the light of his involvement in the politics of Anglo-Irish relations, and trace his literary roots, describing his connection with the Renaissance and studying his use of cliches and rhetoric.
