The Battle of the Books. A Tale of a Tub

The Battle of the Books and A Tale of a Tub are the most important works in the early satirical writings of Jonathan Swift. They were written between 1695 and 1704. They appear in Polish translation for the first time. In the dispute between the Ancients and the Moderns Swift was a staunch supporter of the Ancients. Their followers believed that classical and biblical thought is continuously influencing us. Swift ridiculed his contemporaries for their cult of science, their religious hypocrisy, for following literary trends, and he did it by brilliantly applying irony and grotesques, creatively construing multi-layered absurdities.

Keywords: Swift, ancients, moderns.
