Swift Volume Three Dean Swift

By Irvin Ehrenpreis



First published in 1983, Dean Swift is the concluding book in a series of three volumes providing a detailed exploration of the events of Swift's life. The third volume follows Swift's life and career from 1714 to 1745 and sets it against the public events of the age, paying close attention to political and economic change, ecclesiastical problems, social issues, and literary history. It traces Swift's rise to becoming first citizen of Ireland and looks in detail at the composition, publication, and reception of Gulliver's Travels, as well as many of Swift's other works, both poetry and prose. It also explores Swift's later years, his love affairs with Esther Johnson and Esther Vanhomrigh, his complicated friendships with Pope, Lord Bolingbroke, and Archbishop King, and his declining health. Dean Swift is a hugely detailed insight into Swift's life from 1714 until his death and will be of interest to anyone wanting to find out more about his life and works.
