While we tend to think of satire as being humorous, Swift’s satire is not meant to be funny. Who or what is the target of his satire and how does he use satire to get his point across?.
I don’t know how to handle this Literature question and need guidance.
For the first paper assignment, you are asked to choose one of the following topics and write a 4-5 page paper that analyzes the topic using textual evidence. The paper should be typed, double spaced, Times New Roman 12 point font with a works cited for the primary source. You do need to do any other research, but if you do you must cite it, of course. The paper will be graded on having an original title, a clear thesis (or main point of argument), sufficient textual evidence that is analyzed rather than summarized, while avoiding grammar, spelling, and word choice errors.
