An investigation and analysis of the 'informational' relationship between London, Jonathan Swift (the greatest English satirist) and Dublin, between the lapsing of the Licensing Act (1696) and the rise of authorial property,the beginning of mass readership, and the consequences for modern print culture. Produced by specific communicative conditions,imperial/colonial politics, mercantilist economics, emergent nationalism and personal exile, the projected monograph will redirect Swift criticism from literary biography towards textual and cultural dialogue.
