A Modest Proposal Babygro
A Modest Proposal Babygro A Modest Proposal Babygro

A Modest Proposal Babygro

Description:  A Modest Proposal is widely held to be one of the greatest examples of sustained irony in the history of the English language. Much of its shock value derives from the fact that the first portion of the essay describes the plight of starving beggars in Ireland, so that the reader is unprepared for the surprise of Swift's solution when he states, "A young healthy child well nursed, is, at a year old, a most delicious nourishing and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout." This babygro will certainly be a talking point. 

Details: 100% cotton. White babygro with screen-printed image. Choice of 3 sizes.

Care: machine wash cool. Tumble dry low. Do not iron text/images.

  Free UK delivery if you spend over £30.
