For more than thirty years Hermann Josef Real has dedicated both his time and energy to the study of the Anglo-Irish satirist Jonathan Swift. As an inspired university teacher Real has filled generations of students with enthusiasm for the Dean of St. Patrick’s. As a passionate scholar he enjoys an international reputation of great distinction and has set standards in modern Swift studies with his edition of The Battle of the Books, with his monographs and critical commentaries, with his translations and with more than fifty scholarly articles. As the director of the "Ehrenpreis Institute for Swift Studies" he has managed to turn the university of Münster into a stronghold for Swiftian scholarship. Swift Studies, the scholarly paper, founded by Real ten years ago has developed into a prestigious forum under his aegis, and has meanwhile become an invaluable instrument for the learned discussion of all questions concerning Swift’s life and work. The present Festschrift Swift: The Enigmatic Dean honours the academic achievements of Hermann Josef Real. It contains new contributions from friends, colleagues and fellow Swiftians from all over the world.

"The Festschrift does not forget that H. J. Real is himself a master editor. The three editors present him with a carefully prepared and elegantly illustrated volume, worthy of the shelves og the Ehrenpreis Center for Swift Studies."
