This is not what you might call an easy read and I did struggle. I read 'a modest proposal' in class about seven years ago, in the last year of highschool and I really wanted to reread it. I see now how much I missed then! (Even with the teachers help some parts just didn't make sense back then. Glad to see that my English has evolved! ;D ) The other works were more difficult, but still enjoyable.
