Jonathan Swift was an Anglo-Irishessayist, a great satirist, political pamphleteer, and also a great poet.Swift is regarded by the EncyclopÃ¦dia Britannica as the leading prose satirist in the English language. Swift’s ironic writing style, chiefly in A Modest Proposal, has led to such satire being afterward termed as "Swiftian". This paper is an attempt to understand Swift, as a great satirist by doing an intense study of one of his most famous works Gulliver’s Travels. He wrote a number of works but Gulliver Travels brought him the actual fame. Also, we will try to find his vision of the life of reason that nourished his apartment of misanthropy.
