". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

My literature students read the Jonathan Swift classic "A Modest Proposal" last week. So imagine my pleasure at stumbling upon this essay a few days ago:

"A Modest Proposal to Prevent the Pernicious Warming of Our Fair Globe" - by "Jonathan Swift"

It's modeled on the original both stylistically and structurally, and it's excellent. Take a look.
