1. What social problem is Swift trying to solve with his “modest proposal”? There are various ways in which private vices can become public benefits, more real and practical paths than what was offered some time ago by this serious divine, whose religion and piety are so abundantly exposed in this undisguised confession of his faith, The Tale of a Tub. (Mandeville,  1953, 41) You are not expected to have any particular knowledge of Ireland`s history and you will find most of the information you need in the proposal itself. You are expected to write about what Swift says and how he does it. Later, you are expected to write about other texts that are somehow or in any way so, and compare them. You should choose one of two tasks and use the study guide to guide your letter on the modest proposal. At work, you should quote directly (in quotes) or refer to the details of the text to support your comments. I told him it was true, he was… with consequences of loss, as a kingdom as an individual could come out of his estate. He asked me who our creditors were? And where would we find the money to pay them? (GT II, 185-186) Fauske, Christopher, 2008.
Misunderstanding about what Swift misunderstood, or, the economy of a province. To McGrath and Fauske (note), 135-166. Assuming that a thousand families in this city would be permanent customers for infant meat, among others that he might have at happy encounters, especially on weddings and baptisms, I calculate that Dublin would remove about twenty thousand carcasses a year; and the rest of the kingdom (where they are probably sold a little cheaper) the remaining eighty thousand. He noticed that under the distractions of our nobility and nobility, I had mentioned the game. He wanted to know at what age this conversation was usually recorded and when it had been scheduled. How much of their time he occupied, if it was never so high as to affect their fortune. If the wicked, by their skill in this art, may not be able to achieve great wealth and sometimes they keep our nobles in dependence, and they get used to hating companions, removing them completely from the improvement of their minds and forcing them, by the losses they have received, to learn and practice this infamous dexterity towards others. (GT II, 187-188) First, you should briefly present the proposal: in one or two paragraphs, you explain what it is, when and why it came up.
