5.0 von 5 Sternen Should be required reading for all students! 17. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Anyone who thought they understood the "Troubles" in Ireland should read this essay. One of the best examples of satire to be had in any dialect, Swift writes his "proposal" in language that is clear even to todays jaded audience.
Every English professor/instructor should make this required reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen unbeatable with regard to price 2. Juni 2010
Von kitty cat
Format:Taschenbuch
With this small booklet you get the 5 most important texts by Jonathan Swift plus a short biographical introduction. Of course there is no extra material but for that price it's definately worth buying, even if you just need one text.
The texts contained, are:

The Battle of the Books (1697)
A Meditation upon a Broomstick (1701)
A Discourse Concerning the Mechanical Operation of the Spirit (1704)
An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity in England (1708)
A Modest Proposal (1729)

get it and read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gutes für wenig Geld 3. November 2012
Von Barbara
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich bin seit Jahren ein großer Fan von Jonathan Swift. Sprachlich ist er natürlich nicht ganz einfach, aber trotzdem immer wieder ein großer Gewinn. Inhaltlich ist Swift natürlich nur etwas für Leute, die (schwarze) Satire mögen. Fünf gut ausgewählte Essays von Swift in anständigem, lesbaren Druck machen das kleine Bändchen auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite a Proposal 23. Mai 2001
Von Ellen D. Sickles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"A Modest Proposal", by Jonathan Swift, is a biting satire about life in 18th Century Ireland, in which the author seeks to find "a fair, cheap, and easy method" to transform the sick and starving children of Ireland into productive members of society. Swift's proposal, hardly modest, is to fatten up undernourished poor children and then sell them to more well-to-do families as food. By presenting this outrageous concept as an interrelated string of seemingly logical arguments, Swift leads the reader to understand that his proposal could simultaneously solve overpopulation and unemployment, save the poor from having to spend their meager resources on raising children, provide the poor with desperately needed extra income, and also give the wealthy access to a yet untapped high-protein delight. Of course, Swift is writing tongue-in-cheek, to shock the reader into rejecting his outrageous negative proposal and instead formulate a more sensible positive one. Although written in 1729, Swift's essay is still relevant in the 21st Century. For a really good and very quick read that repulses, amuses, and challenges you to think, I highly recommend this classic work.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Satire, not slippery slope 14. Juni 2005
Von E. Keaveney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This read is pretty congested with 18th century European political and religious references, however it is a beautifully witty and priceless satire on the inconsistencies of human compassion.

Perhaps Swift was trying to evoke shock and heart wrenching disgust in readers in the hopes that the reader would see that England's economic exploitation of Dublin at the time was essentially just as damaging to society as something like government ordained cannibalism. Why is it that a reader would be so horrifically devastated by the idea of turning children into food in order to survive, yet remain callous and unconcerned with the fact that all people, adults and children alike, were in reality victims of a government which not only economically exploited the population to the point of utter poverty, but did not care even slightly that human beings were being turned into rotting corpses as a result?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pass the babies, please. 7. November 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Satire is sadly lacking in today's society. Satire holds human vices and folly up for ridicule. Swift is not advocating the economy of eating babies, but maybe the fact that they are currently eating the body parts of aborted fetuses in China seems to steal something from Swift's modestly porposed satire-or maybe it is too outrageous seeming to be true.
Nevertheless, this is a brilliant work by a brilliant writer. It should be required reading. It is a pristine example of satire. Should we stop choking deaths by improvising starvation-- seek a new president by electing children? Satire is a genius' way of entertaining social change-literally. Although, sometimes though, even what once seemed impossibly satiric does not remain-which is proof of human folly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is clever and humorous 27. April 2010
Von Israel Drazin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Irishman Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) is justly praised for his famous Gulliver's Travels; however, most people know nothing about his other writings. The titled satire is the most widely known of the five short works in this volume. It suggests that the Irish could solve their hunger problem by eating their children. This proposal, he writes, will have many social benefits, including the following: First, it will reduce the number of Roman Catholics who are "the principal breeders of the nation as well as our most dangerous enemies." Second the "poorer tenants will have something valuable of their own." Third, new money will be introduced into the economy that will be beneficial to everyone. Fourth, those having children will not need to maintain them after raising them for a year. Fifth, taverns will have more food at their disposal and "fine gentlemen" will enjoy visiting them. Sixth, doing away with children would be a great inducement to marriage.
