Troubled Dean

Streaming Video - 2005
Rate this:
This program is a definitive treatment of the life of Jonathan Swift, the foremost prose satirist in the English language. Passages from Swift's correspondence and astute commentary by Swift biographers Joseph McMinn and Robert Mahony and other experts provide keen insights into Swift's phenomenal successes and embittering humiliations-plus his enduring works, such as Gulliver's Travels-while firmly anchoring his writings in the socio-historic context of his times. His lifelong crusade against hypocrisy and injustice and his pivotal relationships with his two ladyloves, "Stella" and "Vanessa," are thoroughly analyzed.
