It completes a truly outstanding Writers Edition dedicated to Jonathan Swift, a great author and the creator of “Gulliver’s Travels”.

About

If the British government offered a reward of 300 pounds to anyone who would reveal the identity of an anonymous author, then this writer must have hit the nail on the head. Born in Dublin on November 30, 1667 and raised without a father, Jonathan Swift, the author in question, grew up in Ireland and England. Having received his bachelor’s degree in theology, he moved to Farnham, England, where he took up work as a secretary for influential politician Sir William Temple. Swift was always torn between England and Ireland: his ambition earned him his Master of Arts at Oxford University in the following years. He was ordained a priest of the Anglican Church in Ireland and became deacon of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin. Working as co-editor of the pro-Irish newspaper “Examiner” and writing his first books, he developed his strongest weapon: his sharp pen. The observant man, endowed with a keen intellect, exposed the injustices of his time. His biting satires criticised the exploitation of the Irish by English land-owners and parodied quarrels between Christian denominations. Although he published more than 30 works, none of his writings became as well known as his satirical masterpiece “Gulliver’s Travels”. When he died in 1745, it had won him his fame as an author, and it is the work that he is most remembered for today.
