Wednesday, Feb. 22nd

We continued discussing Jonathan Swift’s Gullivers Travels today, covering chapters 5-8 of “The Voyage to Liliput” and chapters 1-4 of “The Voyage to Brobdinag.”  We will finish off the last four chapters on Friday.

The Satire Assignment will be written in class on Tuesday, Feb. 28th. You can start brainstorming and preparing to satirize a current event or situation(as we discussed in class) in the form of:

  1. a one page mock epic
  2. a 500 word “modest proposal”
  3. a 500 word allegory, in the vein of Gulliver’s Travels

OR  you may write an essay on the satire of the Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift in terms of their targets of satire and the literary / humour techniques they employ.
