18th Century & the Works of Swift & Blake - Part I
I am on half term break and by that definition, I have to throw myself very unwillingly into the first of four assignments - the first being about the 18th century and the society, politics and religion of the day. It is not a time that I am very au fait with. Give me medieval and the Tudors and ALL of the Victorian period and I'm yer gal. Give me Jacobian to the end of Hanover and I glass over. Plus I have to compare Jonathan Swift's political satyr with William Blake's social commentary. I have to use a diving bell to delve deep for this one.
