• Research Paper on:
    The Treatment of Women in Works by Pope and Swift

    Number of Pages: 6


    Summary of the research paper:

    6 pages. This paper will serve to show how Jonathan Swift in his A Modest Proposal and Alexander Pope in his Rape of the Lock treat the female subjects of their works as an irony of society. It must be remembered that at the time that both of these pieces were written that women for the most part carried a less important role in society than did the male. Women were considered to be more of a possession than an equal partner; indeed, women were not allowed to speak with any authority in the topics which men considered to be of most importance. With this fact in mind, it is not surprising that women are considered the brunt of jokes and satire more often than were their male counterparts in both of these works. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
