Summary

Jonathan Swift's brilliant work of satire puts forth a simple solution for the crop failure and dearth of essential goods in 18th-century Ireland: the impoverished populace should sell their children as food to the wealthier classes. Far from legitimately suggesting cannibalism as a cure for societal ills, however, Swift puts his biting wit and profound use of irony to work critiquing mercantilism. This beautifully illustrated bilingual edition features the text in its original English, as well as translated into Spanish. La obra brillantemente satírica de Jonathan Swift propone una solución simple para la mala cosecha y falta de bienes esenciales en Irlanda del siglo XVIII: los más pobres deberían vender sus hijos como comida para los más ricos. Lejos de plantear el canibalismo como un remedio legítimo para los problemas sociales, sin embargo, Swift usa su ingenio penetrante y una ironía profunda para criticar el mercantilismo. Esta hermosamente ilustrada edición bilingüe contiene el texto original en inglés y traducido al español.
