Write The First Customer Review

Chalmers argues that Swift's creative imagination -- especially when working satirically -- was vitalized by the prospect of time to come. Swift's interest in the future is considered in the context of pertinent seventeenth- and eighteenth-century religious, scientific, and cultural debates and is compared with that of other writers.
