Jonathan Swift is generally considered one of the greatest satirists and most important writers of England and Ireland. Claude Rawson discusses the sardonic view of human nature, the political activism, and the indignations and self-divisions in Swift's prose and verse to reveal the terrible, but deeply guarded, angers found therein.

'Swift's Angers is deeply learned and provocative, wide-ranging in its references and rich in its readings. Rawson's Swift is a conflicted man ... that many of us feel we already know, but one who has perhaps never before been so fully and poignantly rendered.' Ashley Marshall, Modern Philology
'[Claude Rawson is] the most consistently brilliant Swiftian of our age. He also brings enviable depth of reading and a range of reference to his analysis of Swift and ... the book contains so much lasting value that it should be read by every self-respecting Sciblerian,' Andrew Carpenter, The Scriblerian and the Kit-Cats
Jonathan Swift's angers were all too real, though Swift was temperamentally equivocal about their display. Even in his most brilliant satire, A Tale of a Tub, the aggressive vitality of the narrative is designed, for all the intensity of its sting, never to lose its cool. Yet Swift's angers are partly self-implicating, since his own temperament was close to the things he attacked, and behind his angers are deep self-divisions. Though he regarded himself as 'English' and despised the Irish 'natives' over whom the English ruled, Swift became the hero of an Irish independence he would not have desired. In this magisterial account, Claude Rawson, widely considered the leading Swift scholar of our time, brings together recent work, as well as classic earlier discussions extensively revised, offering fresh insights into Swift's bleak view of human nature, his brilliant wit, and the indignations and self-divisions of his writings and political activism.
