Descrizione

“This made me reflect, how vain an attempt it is for a man to endeavour to do himself honour among those who are out of all degree of equality or comparison with him.” –from Gulliver’s Travels Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift’s best known full-length work, a classic of English literature, a satirical experiment of human nature and the dangers of misusing reason, is both critical and humorous while implicitly posing the idea of whether it is good or not to use moral righteousness and physical power as governing factors within the society. The power of Gulliver’s Travels, constantly attacking British and European societies through depictions of imaginary countries, comes most probably from its fabulous depiction of the human condition, which was not only the reason for its becoming popular as soon as published, but also its never being out of print ever since and taking its place in the history of world literature.
