Swift: "A Modest Proposal" and Ehrenreich: The Maids"
Hi, class, attached is a link to Jonathan Swift's essay, "A Modest Proposal." The Barbara Ehrenreich essay is not available on-line--if I have a chance, I will scan it and put it up on Saturday, so check back for it. Hard copies of both essays are available if you stop by my office--they are right outside the door (in Lucite trays). Please read the Swift essay first, and be ready to comment on it.
"A Modest Proposal," by Jonathan Swift
Again, for Tuesday, please answer one of the questions on the Animal Rights debate in the "Writing" section of the handout that follows the Sabine/Goodall pieces. It should follow MLA-style, standard essay format, and should be NO MORE than 1,000 words. No cover page is necessary--just use the MLA heading.
I will collect these essays and hand back your marked online responses to Mencken's "The Penalty of Death."
Have a wonderful and restful weekend!
