Note on your summary: Swift did not actually support baby-eating. He wrote "A Modest Proposal" as a satire of the aristocracy's application of idiot logic in order to dismiss the problems of the poor and rationalize their own wealth.

This is really awesome work. I'm not much of a Jonathan Swift fan, but I liked A Modest Proposal. The idea of baby eating was sick and twisted, but the way those people were treated, well, it was an awesome satire. Maybe you could check out "My Modest Proposal". I just posted it. It's a modern high school version I had to write for my English Lit class. It's very funny, and you might like it. If you read it, please review and let me know what you think.

I like this. It shows insight and careful thought, and Severus makes a wonderfully honest narrator. Nice work.
