A Modest Proposal

A Modest Proposal

Work Time

This, of course, is an essay written in a somewhat strange way. It’s not at all what it appears to be!

Discuss the following with your classmates.

  • What does Swift appear to argue as you begin reading the essay?
  • Can you cite any evidence from the essay that supports this thinking?
  • What do you think he’s really arguing?
  • Again, is there any evidence that supports your thinking?
