A fascinating and revealing read.

Gulliver's Travels is Swift's best known and most enduring work, which I studied at University. It is sometimes popularly seen as a children's story and the first two voyages to Lilliput and Brobdingnag do lend themselves to adaptions for Children. However the book is in fact a very complex and serious satire, as well as a parody in the style of the traveler's tales of the time. Swift satirizes the governments and practices of his time in such depth and often with such apparent bitterness that he is often said to be a misanthropist. However I feel the case could be made that he is in fact a lover of humanity who is extremely distressed at the failing and cruelties he sees around him. The themes explored in Gulliver's Travels include the rule of might versus moral right, passion versus rationality and the alienation of the individual in society. It is often difficult to see where Swift sympathies lie - he seems to satirize everybody and every self-righteous attitude.
