PDF EBook by Jonathan Swift

EBook Description

Complete Poems PDF EBook I liked getting a glimpse into the friendships and enmities of this guy who lived more than 250 years ago. And I can see how the rhymes and satire he used are clever.

Or the controversies and arrests related to the publishing of particular poems. Or even the complicated process this editor, and various editors previously, have gone through to try to figure out whether a particular poem was actually written by Swift, or not.
