it was amazing

In only 50ish pages, you can convince yourself Swift is one of the greats of satire and not much has changed in the genre since.
He uses language with great ability, turning his foes' arguments and style against themselves, in a bittersweet verbal revenge. Also recommended reading to get a taste for the, uhm, bitterness that has historically characterized Anglo-Irish relations.
Includes four more short texts alongside the "Modest Proposal"
