Despite his career-long interest in Horace, Swift did not write formal “imitations” in the extensive manner in which Dryden or Pope did. This might in part explain the relative neglect of his Horatian poems in Swift studies and in surveys of literary translation of the period. In many of these poems, such as “The First Ode of the Second Book Paraphrased,” “Part of the Seventh Epistle of the First Book of Horace Imitated,” “Horace, Lib 2, Sat 6. Part of it Imitated,” “To the Earl of Oxford … out of Horace,” and “Toland’s Invitation to Dismal … Imitated from Horace,” Swift deals with parts, not wholes. In “Horace, Book I, Ode XIV,” by contrast, he engrafts onto the original striking new material, including a primer for his implied readership. While earlier critics have examined Swift’s Horatian poems in terms of the theory and practice of literary translation, this essay shifts the focus onto the translator rather than the translation, the persona rather than the paraphrased. Thus, it works towards a larger study of Swift’s appropriative poetics beyond formal imitation.

This new volume of Reading Swift assembles 26 lectures delivered at the Seventh Münster Symposium on Jonathan Swift in June 2017, testifying to an extraordinary spectrum of research interests in the Dean of St Patrick’s, Dublin, and his works. Reading Swift follows the tried and tested format of its predecessors, grouping the essays in eight sections: biographical problems; bibliographical and canonical studies; political and religious as well as philosophical, economic, and social issues; poetry; Gulliver’s Travels; and reception studies. The élan vital, which has been such a distinctive feature of Swift scholar-ship in the past thirty-five years, is continuing unabated.
Assembling thirty-five lectures delivered at the Sixth Münster Symposium on Jonathan Swift in June 2011, this new volume of Reading Swift testifies to an extraordinary spectrum of research interests in the Dean of St Patrick’s, Dublin, and his works. As in the successful earlier volumes, the essays have been grouped in eight sections: biographical aspects (W. B. Carnochan, John Irwin Fischer, Clive T. Probyn, Abigail Williams); bibliographical and textual studies (Ian Gadd, James E. May); A Tale of a Tub (J. A. Downie, Gregory Lynall and Marcus Walsh, Michael McKeon); historical and religious issues (Christopher J. Fauske, Christopher Fox, Ian Higgins, Ashley Marshall, Nathalie Zimpfer); Irish vistas (Sabine Baltes, Toby Barnard, Andrew Carpenter, D. W. Hayton, James Ward); poetry (Daniel Cook, Kirsten Juhas, Stephen Karian, Dirk F. Passmann and Hermann J. Real, James Woolley); Gulliver’s Travels (Barbara M. Benedict, Allan Ingram, Ann Cline Kelly, Melinda Alliker Rabb); and reception and adaptation (Gabriella Hartvig, Clement Hawes, Heinz-Joachim Müllenbrock, Tim Parnell, Peter Sabor, Nicholas Seager, Howard D. Weinbrot). Clearly, the élan vital, which has been such a distinctive feature of Swift scholarship in the past thirty years, is continuing unabated.
