  • 1st slide- Birth of Swift
    2nd slide- Born in Dublin. Can't you mix these two facts together in one slide?) Can you give novelist's biographical sketch orally? You can. Good vocabulary in your content. You can say if Swift presents life full of fancy then why does he satirise the present that was once a future? He should praise something like fantasy of present time. Keep 'Times New Roman' font. Keep it up. Best of LUCK !
