Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) Video Lesson

Jonathan Swift is the second of the three writers of the Augustan Age discussed in the English Course addressed to 4th year Secondary School Italian Students.

The video lesson discusses Swift’s writing techniques and the strong criticism towards political, social and religious controversies of his time through a mastery of satire largely used in his works.

The two main works discussed are his masterpiece, “Gulliver’s Travels”, published in 1726 and “A Modest Proposal” a pamphlet of political satire, published in 1729.
