A modest proposal and ireland
The pen is mightier then the sword. It is a saying that drives all great writers to strive to battle the injustices of their time. In 1729, Jonathan Swift wrote "A Modest Proposal," which satirically showed the strife of the Irish people. Using satire, Jonathan Swift was able to make social critiques without direcrtly criticizing the English government. It also exposed the harsh and inhuman treatment of the Irish at the hands of their English oppressors. He points out this treatment by nonchalantly referring to stereotypes of the Irish throughout the essay.
