Most widely held works by David Woolley
Jonathan Swift by Jonathan Swift( Book )
26 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and held by 1,016 libraries worldwide
"This anthology includes satirical works such as A Tale of a Tub and The Battle of the Books, political pamphlets, pieces for the popular press, poems, and a generous selection from Swift's correspondence. Presented chronologically, the anthology offers a new and clearer awareness of the unity as well as the complexity of Swift's vision, and the powerful bonds between disparate pieces."--BOOK JACKET
A tale of a tub, and other work by Jonathan Swift( Book )
20 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 442 libraries worldwide
"A vehemence and rapidity of mind, a copiousness of images, and a vivacity of diction"--Samuel Johnson. Thus Dr. Johnson characterized A Tale of a Tub, in many respects Swift's most brilliant achievement. His satire on religion and government allegorizes the Roman Catholic, Anglican, and Dissenting faiths in the shape of three disobedient and quarrelsome brothers. Digressions on critics, on the prevailing dispute as to ancient and modern learning, and on madness interrupt the tale, the masterpiece of Swift's earlier years. This edition is supplemented by a useful selection of passages from works by Fontanelle, Sir William Temple, Wotton, Richard Bentley, and others. These help to place Swift's allusive satires in the religious, intellectual, and political controversy of the day

Jonathan Swift : major works by Jonathan Swift( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This authoritative edition was originally published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It brings together a unique selection from the full range of Swift's fifty-year career - prose, poetry, and letters - to give the essence of his work and thinking. Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) is best known as the author of Gulliver's Travels, which alone would have secured his place in the history of English literature. But in addition to this classic of fictional satire, Swift wrote numerous works concerning politics, religion, and Ireland, some savage (such as A Modest Proposal), others humorous, and all suffused with his tremendous wit, inventiveness, and vigour. This anthology includes satirical works such as A Tale of a Tub and The Battle of the Books, political pamphlets, pieces for the popular press, poems, and a generous selection from Swift's correspondence. Presented chronologically, the anthology offers a new and clearer awareness of the unity as well as the complexity of Swift's vision, and the powerful bonds between disparate pieces.-Back cover
