Jonathan Swift John Stubbs



Jonathan Swift was a man of contradictions: a man who satirized the powerful but aspired to political greatness, who mocked men’s vanity but held himself in high esteem, a religious moralizer famed for his malice – a man sharply aware of humanity’s flaws, but no less susceptible to them. As with his acclaimed biography of John Donne, John Stubbs paints a vivid portrait of an extraordinary man and a turbulent period of English and Irish history.
