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."
