The reader falls for his trick and looks forward to hearing his proposed “cheap and easy method of making these children sound and useful members of the common-wealth” (Swift, 1729, para.2). Swift continues his deception by using practical economic jargon, calculations and statistical data in his discussion. The reader anticipates that Swift will come up with a realistic solution... by which these poor...

In fact, its contents are so ridiculous it was designed to catch the attention of those people in authority, the politicians who are responsible for the welfare of their people but did nothing to improve their lot or find solutions to a vexing problem that seems to defy all decent attempts to rectify or at least moderate the severity of over-population in Ireland. Suggestions in the said modest proposal were absolutely absurd, for he advocated cannibalism as the only sensible way to get rid of unwanted children while...

Hence, this prompted him to conceive an appropriate idea meant to solve his state’s predicaments. The method entailed turning to the trade of human infants as a source of meat with the intention of improving the economy as well as reducing overpopulation. The basis of his...
