The Enlightenment

The Enlightenment or the Age of Reason turned its back on the ideals of the Renaissance and focussed on new developments in philosophy, science, art and politics. This section highlights some of the great writers of this period, such as Jonathan Swift (1667-1745), who was a master of political satire.
