Swift, who probably was proud of his employment, and went with all the confidence of a young man, found his arguments, and his art of displaying them, made totally ineffectual by the pre-determination of the King; and used to mention this disappointment as his first antidote against vanity.
Swift began early to think, or to hope, that he was a poet, and wrote Pindarick Odes to Temple, to the King, and to the Athenian Society, a knot of obscure men, who published a periodical pamphlet of answers to questions, sent, or supposed to be sent, by Letters.
Swift was then in England, and had been invited by Lord Bolingbroke to pass the winter with him in France ; but this call of calamity hastened him to Ireland, where perhaps his presence contributed to restore her to imperfect and tottering health.

 Edgewater Historical Society - Swift School Celebrates 75 Years (V01-4)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The school was named for George Bell Swift, who became the 30th mayor of Chicago in 1893 after the untimely death of Mayor Carter Harrison.
Swift's first principal was Harriet A. Eckhardt who, according to EHS member Frances Posner, "intensely tested pupil abilities and divided classes according to learning aptitudes." She was succeeded by Hattie Listenfelt, Eileen Cunningham and Jean Kenning.
Frances Posner fondly recalls Swift's Thorndale garden of flowering apple trees and the tall blue pine in the center ring of the winding walkways, which was planted by child and parent subscriptions.

 Beckett - Stewart's "Samuel Beckett and Jonathan Swift"
Georges Bataille was the first to draw attention to this mythical quality in Beckett when he said that Molloy was a “monstrous myth, emerging from the sleep of reason,” and others have further developed his arguments.
Swift, on the other hand, is more comfortable with longer passages in which the barbs of his satire are unleashed at the end of a slow and patient preparation.
Swift, by contrast, holds himself aloof from his protagonist and likens him to the human beings whom he (Swift) is chastising (on return from his last voyage Gulliver hates himself almost as much as he hates his fellow men and women).
