This vintage book contains Jonathan Swift's 1704 satire, "A Tale of a Tub". The first major work that he wrote, it is a prose parody about two brothers who are each representative of the chief aspects of western Christianity. It mainly deals with the ideas of religious enthusiasm, pride, and credulity. Published at a time when religion was an intrinsic aspect of politics, the work was widely condemned, with Queen Anne going as far as to call it "profane". Contents include: "The Introduction", "A Digression Concerning Critics", "A Tale of a Tub", "A Digression in the Modern Kind", "A Tale of a Tub", "A Digression in Praise of Digressions", "A Tale of a Tub", "A Digression Concerning the Original", "A Farther Digression", "A Tale of a Tub", et cetera. Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was an Anglo-Irish essayist, satirist, poet, and cleric. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
