KIRKUS REVIEW

A creative piece of editing, in that it brings to general awareness, much that is forgotten, not known, or ignored, written by ""the greatest satirist in our language"". A superb introduction paints a pen portrait of Swift and his age, with the contradictions, his prejudices, his brilliance, his loves and hates and friendships. The main text represents the best of his essays, poems, letters, journals, and the complete Gulliver. One of the best of his excellent series.
