Description

Building upon recent research on the history of women, Jonathan Swift in the Company of Women examines Swift, both as man and writer, in terms of women: women as intimates, acquaintances, subjects of satire, and those who have written about Swift. It considers women as mothers and nurses in Swift's personal life and his fictions, and it explores the issue that has persisted from the eighteenth century into our own time: the subject of misogyny in Swift's writings.show more
