In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to the most important poets in our literature.
Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was born in Dublin, of English parents, and educated at Trinity College Dublin. London-based for many years, and a noted satirist during the reign of Queen Anne, he returned to Dublin in 1713 as Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Gulliver's Travels appeared in 1726.
Derek Mahon was born in Belfast in 1941, studied at Trinity College, Dublin, and has held journalistic and academic appointments in London and New York. He has received numerous awards including a Lannan Award and the Scot Moncrieff Translation Prize. His Collected Poems was published in 1999.
Inhaltsangabe: This selection of Jonathan Swift poems, chosen by Derek Mahon, is a timely reminder of the huge talents Swift possessed as a poet, extending far beyond the masterpiece for which he is known,Gulliver's Travels.
