    789 words
    Gulliver's Travels Although it appears simple and straightforward on the surface, a mere travelogue intended solely for the amusement of children, Gulliver's Travels, by Jonathan Swift, proves, upon closer examination, to be a critical and insightful work satirizing the political and social systems of eighteenth-century England. Through frequent and successful employment of irony, ambiguity and symbolism, Swift makes comments addressing such specific topics as current political controversies as ...
  • Satire On The Professors

    He's not Making Funnies is He? Gulliver's Travels is swarmed with many different satires. In the movie Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift throws out a number of ideas and statements concerning his views of hatred for cruelty, injustice, pettiness, and also stupidity that he saw through his everyday life.

  • Gulliver An Important Person
    692 words
    Jonathan Swift satirizes the nature of human beings by making the role of physical appearance important. Jonathan Swift ridicules human nature by making an example of Lemuel Gulliver as a Big, small, and out of the ordinary person throughout Gullivers Travels. In Book I, Lemuel Gulliver ends up on the island of Lilliputian. There, he meets a population of small persons, where he is a giant amongst them. As a giant, the Lilliputians find Gulliver an important person, and use his talents to defeat...
  • Gulliver's Madness
    1,442 words
    In a very broad sense, Gulliver's Travels bears a close resemblance to Plato's allegory of the cave. Lemuel Gulliver is the man who somehow managed to free himself from the shackles. He steps out of the cave and, having seen the sun, he cannot pretend that looking at shadows on the wall is the only possible way of life. What happens at the end of Gulliver's Travels is just what Plato says will happen to the man who returns into the cave to free the others. He is treated as insane because the oth...
