DescriptionShows how 'raillery', or 'irony...on the subject of praise', suited both Swift's temperament and the characteristic bent of his genius. It examines some of the techniques by which Swift praised and honored while avoiding fulsome eulogy. An appendix supplies notes about Irish writers who were associated with Swift.
