Voltaire vs. Swift
Which celebrated 18th century satirist do you prefer?
Personally, I prefer Voltaire due to his work being in many ways more charming than Swift's and actually making me laugh.
Swift, would rather be without the insipid Manichean preaching of Candide
Goldsmith and Burke, Swift and the Bishop of Cloyne
All hated Whiggery; but what is Whiggery?
A levelling, rancorous, rational sort of mind
That never looked out of the eye of a saint
Or out of drunkard's eye.
