Titre : Swift as Priest and Satirist (Hardback)

Éditeur : University of Delaware Press, United States

Date d'édition : 2009

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. One of the most tendentious and enduring questions of Swift scholarship concerns his faith. What did Swift believe? Was his career in the Church primarily a means of political and social advancement? Did Swift subscribe to a coherent theology, or were his beliefs simply expedient? How did the turbulent streams of eighteenth-century Anglican and Protestant theologies influence Swift s satiric vision? In the light of recent work on his tenure in the Church of Ireland, this volume presents a timely critical appraisal of Swift s role as a priest vis-a-vis his identity as one of the Enlightenment s premier satirists. The essays in this volume cover four broad categories: Swift s relationship to the Church of Ireland and to the bruising world of eighteenth-century theological discourse in general; how Swift represents religious figures and controversies in his poetry and prose; the relationships between religious and literary genres; and the links between Swift s satires and contemporary religious, philosophical, and scientific discourse.
