    Journal Example on “A Modest Proposal”, by Jonathan Swift Style: Swift’s use of Satire to Drive his Point Swift’s use of satire is what truly makes his message so powerful. I can imagine that there were many do-gooders at the time breathlessly trying to convince the greedy British government that they need to act at solving the humanitarian crisis in Ireland, but that none likely got quite as much airtime as Swift’s outlandish essay.

Straightforward and poignant in his assertions, the…

    Thomas More’s Utopia and Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal both captured my attention this semester with how they both were very political in addressing real life problems of their respective time periods.
