'A Tale of a Tub' is a satirical work by Jonathan Swift.
The work looks at the morals and ethics of the English. It was satirising religion and politics, which could hardly be seperated at the time, and the publication made Swift notorious and was widely misunderstood.
Jonathan Swift was an Irish writer, with an emphasis on satirical political topics. 'Gulliver's Travels' is widely regarded as Swift's masterpiece, though he saw a lot of success in his other works during his lifetime. He wrote various essays and political pamphlets, as well as poetry and sermons.
