Jonathan Swift is still one of our best satirists and that is uite something seeing as he died in 1845 and was Irish Here then we have this book which has always remained popular and is part of our literary history A masterpiece and a success from day one this satirises not only people but also pokes fun at the travel tales of the periodHere then we have Lemuel Gulliver’s travels passed onto us by Mr Gulliver himself who was of course known for his veracity so then what is written here has to have actually happened after all surely Lemuel would not provide us with falsehoods Taking in his remarkable travels so we read of what he experiences amongst different racesTaking in those little people of Lilliput so we then see him amongst the giants of Brobdingnag and then onto pastures new eventually meeting the Houyhnhnms Originally just going to be a satire on traveller’s tales this grew into something much elaborate with a sharp and witty look at things as they were and are still so today An anti Whig tale this tackles many issues after all with the people of Lilliput and the trouble over which end an egg should be cut when eating we see that this stems from a religious work and thus religion and its many factions are here poked fun at We also see misogyny and misanthropy treated in the same manner With different races thinking they are better than others or that their system of government is best we see this being comically looked at raising the uestion of what government system is best as well as can anyone really claim their race is better than others Indeed such problems are still with us you just need to look at the persecutions in the Islamic world to see one faction having power than another and with government just look what has happened with Brexit in that no one really knows how to leave the EU Also this takes in vast bureaucracy something which we are all familiar with with so much red tapeIn this country this nowadays seems to have been relegated by many to a children’s book and of course no doubt it does entertain all ages but perhaps adults should read this after all what Swift mocks here are things that still cause us problems in the real world today and have not really been dealt with at all or rather poorly In all this is very funny and mentally stimulating and will carry on being a classic and one that for the real reader will offer much to contemplate
