"A Modest Proposal" is a satirical essay written by Jonathan Swift and published in 1729. The essay proposes a shocking solution to the problem of poverty in Ireland: that poor Irish families should sell their children as food to wealthy English landlords.

The essay is a commentary on the dehumanizing effects of poverty and the cruel indifference of the ruling class. Swift uses irony and satire to expose the absurdity of the prevailing attitudes towards poverty and class in his time.

Despite its controversial content, the essay has been widely studied and discussed as a classic example of political satire and social commentary.



"I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled..."

"Therefore I repeat, let no man talk to me of these and the like expedients, 'till he hath at least some glympse of hope, that there will ever be some hearty and sincere attempt to put them into practice.
