A Modest Proposal [Pdf Book] Overview
Swift’s essay is widely regarded as one of the most significant and finest displays of sustained irony in English literature and language history.
Most of its shock value originates from the point that the first part of the essay explains the miserable situation of beggars in Ireland so that the reader of the essay is not ready for the wonderment of Swift’s resolution to the problem when he says: “A young well nursed healthy a year old child is a most delicious wholesome and nutritious food, whether baked, stewed, boiled, or roasted; and I make no suspicion that it will fairly serve in a ragout or fricassee.
Swift supports his argument strongly by incorporating a list of probable preparation styles of these young children and explaining the suggestion’s financial benefits.
