Jonathan Swift`s "excremental vision," the hallmark of his critique of the metropolitan chain of consumption and its excrements, is materialized through and onto the body of the low Other: women, in particular London prostitutes, and the urban poor. Swift at once repeats and repeals contemporary misogynist and anti-capitalist discourse on consumer economy, which typically posits the female body as the agent of consumption of goods, food, and sexuality and thereby places it in a metonymic relation to its wastes. He pushes this metonymy to the extreme in "A Beautiful Young Nymph Going to Bed" and "The Progress of Beauty," where the body of a diseased London prostitute is seen literally being transmuted into excrement. However, this is less to inveigh against (over-)consuming females, than to lay bare the greater chain of consumption in which the diseased and poor are being "consumed," rather than consuming. The London prostitute`s body is the "historicized" body of the low Other, situated in parallel with those of the Irish poor in Swift`s Irish pamphlets and A Modest Proposal. By literalizing the metropolitan chain of consumption, Swift accuses the English body politic of preying on female, diseased and poor bodies and reducing them to its excrements.
