Jonathan Swift was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer , poet and Anglican cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, hence his common sobriquet, "Dean Swift".Swift is remembered for works such as A Tale of a Tub , An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity , Gulliver's Travels , and A Modest Proposal . He is regarded by the Encyclopædia Britannica as the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. He originally published all of his works under pseudonyms – such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, M. B. Drapier – or anonymously. He was a master of two styles of satire, the Horatian and Juvenalian styles.Source: Wikipedia
