A modest proposal is a satire on the poverty that Ireland faced during the 1600's.swift uses his modest proposal of the people to raise their young to the age of one and then sell them for food and other necessities. As harsh as this sounds he wanted to prove a point to England that the people of Ireland were faced with poverty and harsh conditions.
