"Gulliver's Travels" provides a Critical & Insightful Framework Relevant still Today

"Gulliver's Travels" provides a Critical and Insightful Framework Relevant still Today

Authored by Johnathon Swift, originally published in 1726.

"Shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters - with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms and the brutish Yahoos - give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behaviour. Swift's savage satire view mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves." -Goodreads.com
