The purpose of this essay is to analyse the teaching of literature with a competency-based approach. This is exemplified by means of a thorough study of a poetic duel between two relevant eighteenth-century writers, Jonathan Swift and Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, and more specifically, by means of the satires entitled respectively “The Lady’s Dressing Room” (1732) and “The Reason that Induced Dr S[wift] to write a Poem call’d the Lady’s Dressing Room” (1734).
