Author Biography - Jonathan Swift

Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was born in Dublin, Ireland. From 1689 to 1699, he worked as secretary to Sir William Temple in Moor Park, Surrey, England, returning for a short period to Ireland in 1694, where he was ordained an Anglican priest. It was during his stay in Moor Park that Swift discovered his talent for writing satire. From 1708 to 1714, much of his time was spent on ecclesiastic missions in London, where the brilliance of his political pamphleteering earned him the respect of the leading governmental figures of his day. For the remaining thirty-odd years of his life, he served as Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin. During this period he wrote "Gulliver's Travels" (published in 1726) and went on to become a national hero for defending Ireland against the inequities of the English Whigs. Leo Damrosch has taught at the universities of Virginia and Maryland and at Harvard University, where he is presently Ernest Bernbaum Professor of Literature. He has published books on such subjects as Samuel Johnson, Alexander Pope, William Blake, and the eighteenth-century novel, His biography "Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Restless Genius," was one of five finalists for the 2005 National Book Award in Nonfiction, and won the L. L. Winship/PEN New England Award for best work of nonfiction. Nathaniel Rich is the author of the novel "The Mayor s Tongue." He is the senior editor of "The Paris Review" and has written for "The New York Review of Books," "Vanity Fair," "The New York Times," and "Slate," among other publications."
