Swift Volume Two Dr Swift

Swift Volume Two Dr Swift

By Irvin Ehrenpreis



First published in 1967, Dr Swift is the second of three volumes providing a detailed exploration of the events of Swift's life. This volume begins by assessing Swift's character, hopes and ambitions in 1699. It then traces his life and career up to 1714 in minute detail, giving close consideration to Swift's expectations and the extent to which he felt they were fulfilled. In doing so, it covers Swift's movement between Ireland and England, his reputation as a poet, his historical writing, his church preferments, involvement in politics, and much more, including his relationships with a number of prominent social figures of the time. Dr Swift is ideal for those with an interest in Swift's life, and in particular his life and career between 1699 and 1714.
