          Acerca de Jonathan Swift

          Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) ha sido durante mucho tiempo víctima de una leyenda negra: se decía que se había vuelto loco, quizá para no tener que tomar en serio las críticas a la sociedad y la humanidad que aparecen en su obra. Irlandés, de la minoría inglesa dominante, fue sin embargo un gran defensor del pueblo de su país, mayoritariamente pobre y católico. Swift fue eclesiástico anglicano e intervino mucho en la defensa de sus colegas en Irlanda. Al fin, para alejarlo de Londres, lo nombraron deán en Dublín. El genio satírico de Swift no se hace patente solo en Los viajes de Gulliver, sino también en otros muchos de sus escritos polémicos, como la célebre Modesta proposición para acabar con los niños pobres irlandeses por el simple método de comérselos.

          Acerca de François Rabelais

          François Rabelais 1484(?)-1553(?) A Franciscan monk turned Benedictine, he abandoned the cloister in 1530 and began to study medicine at Montpellier. Two years later he wrote his first work, Pantagruel, which revealed his genius as a storyteller, satirist, propagandist and creator of comic situations and characters. In 1534 he published Gargantua, a companion to Pantagruel, which contains some of his best work. It mocks old-fashioned theological education, and opposes the monastic ideal, contrasting it with a free society of noble Evangelicals. Following an outburst of repression in late 1534, Rabelais abandoned his post of doctor at the Hotel-Dieu at Lyons and despite Royal support his book Tiers Livre was condemned. His last work, and his boldest, Quart Livre was published in 1551 and he died two years later. M. A. Screech is a Fellow of All Souls College and Honorary Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, and Fellow of the British Academy, He is a world-renowned Renaissance scholar who has published widely on Rabelais, Montaigne and Erasmus. He has translated Montaigne's Essays for Penguin.
