Writer and a teacher living in Paris This is what Jonathan Swift made the Duke appear like according to his poem. Neil Heims, Critical Essay on "A Satirical Essay on the Death of a Late Great General," in Poetry for Students, Gale, 2008. Claims for " A Satirical Elegy of A Late Famous General" The last loud trump must wake him now :
And, trust me, as the noise grows stronger,
He'd wish to sleep a little longer. These three lines state that regarding Christian belief before the last judgement, when souls are confined to Hell or Heaven, a trumpet will awaken the sleeping dead. The speaker then assures us that the sound signals his damnation. Neil Heims, Critical Essay on "A Satirical Essay on the Death of a Late Great General," in Poetry for Students, Gale, 2008.

Corrruption, Thief The elegy is written according to the title but not it is not directed at the duke but at his death.
Therefore the satire is not satirizing the general, but the elegy itself as a literary form, is being satirized. Thesis Statement Even though he started out as a good general in the war, the duke is a bad guy because his victories in the war made him indispensable to the nation but in his eyes as well, this helped make him become corrupted with power, and he was accused of lining his own pockets at the expense of the people. http://www.tommarch.com/electraguide/thesis.php For example : (wikipedia) (biography) (Hyperhistory) (Gale E Books) (Merriam Webster) (Heims) (emerginganabaptist) (Heims) (Tommarch)
