Beschreibung

A groundbreaking work of satire, a predecessor to science fiction, and a critique of modern government and science, Jonathan Swift’s masterwork wears many hats. The episodic faux-travel tale follows Lemuel Gulliver as he encounters exotic society after exotic society, each parodying an aspect of Swift’s socio-political environment. Published less than a decade after Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, some interpret Gulliver’s Travels to be a direct rebuttal to Defoe’s optimism about human nature and his belief in individuality’s primacy over society. Perhaps most of all, the novel offers a glimpse into English society as it struggled with the Enlightenment’s seismic shift in philosophy.
