About the Book

Swift's black satire in which the Proposer, after a protracted prologue foreshadowing a new measure for the nation to adopt with respect to its youngest children, finally announces it - at one year old they would make an excellent stew, ragout, or fricassee, and child-bearing mothers could engage in robust competition to see who could bring the fattest baby to market.

10 editions First published in 1729
