    Tale of a Tub is incandescent, the rest maybe not so much Very fun to read though.

    This book contains everything the Swift student needs to have a hilarious and occasionally heartbreaking reading experience All of his important writings are included, from A Tale of a Tub and the devotional poetry to Gulliver s Travels and beyond.
