One Reply to “Gulliver's Travels / A Modest Proposal”

  1. I really had to read this about three times to get the whole political underscore and social commentary When you re 8 years old, it just seems like a fun fairytale, but reading it multiple times in high school and college, it struck different chords each time It s actually a pretty smart critique on life dressed up in an interesting bunch of journeys to different lands.A Modest Proposal, was hilarious, in my opinion Reading it once as is and then again keeping in mind the satirical nature of the [...]

  2. This book is SO much than Lilliput I m glad I read the entire book, rather than relying on Disney s version.

  3. EhI picked up Gulliver s Travels because I brought back from Christmas holiday my parents home and residence for many of my books with the intention of diving right into it in January Obviously, the intention has gone stale as it is now July Gulliver s travels reminds me of Twain s Innocents Abroad Both are travel narratives and not really novels in the traditional sense if at all Swift and Twain s works are also united by their satirical intentions, though I must admit that much of the satire l [...]

  4. Gulliver s Travels is purported to be a classic and a children s tale I read this to find out about both and to remove the Disney version from my head Gulliver travels to Lilliput The small , Brobdingnag giants , Laputa thinkers and Houyhnhnm horses The small and large are contrasted to show that might makes the rules The thinkers are characterized an nonsensical, useless, layabout tyrants and the horse society with its attendant Yahoos feral humans as the ideal The ideal which has no crime, wan [...]

  5. I thought this, being a classic, would be better It was exciting at first to read about his experiences in a strange land, but after awhile, all I could think was, Geez guy, just stay home with your wife and kids Every time you leave on a ship you inevitably are shipwrecked or thrown overboard or mutineered LEARN YOUR LESSON But he doesn t Maybe it s just that the stack of books on my nightstand seem WAY interesting that Gulliver s Travels But it wasn t engaging for me Sadly, I think the Jack B [...]

  6. Swift had a political agenda when he wrote Gulliver s Travels, and I find it fascinating how he could weave a plot around his opinions, to create an analogy that anyone can understand and find humor in As a result, he created not just an avenue for his social opinions, but a new literary culture ie the original source for our term yahoo.If you have never read A Modest Proposal I highly recommend it Swift mocks some of his contemporaries and their methods for solving social problems, by proposing [...]

  7. This wasn t the edition I read as a teenager, but it has my two favorite Swift pieces The original Gulliver s Travels is nothing like the animated feature film or the later movie versions I remember it as being quite naughty when I first read it A Modest Proposal is hilarious For amture teens as I was and adults, an enjoyable adventure story and perhaps, in another dimension or some dystopian society, a solution to hunger Don t know what i am talking about Beat it to your local library or used b [...]

  8. I really like the Voyage to Lilliput, but after that Swift s sense of humor grows old This is the second time I have taught this and I enjoyed teaching it the second time around Unfortunately, like most teachers, I have run out of time and didn t get to cover the novel in depth the way I would have liked I do think the students appreciated the satire, although I m not sure they entirely understood all of the references, I did make a good effort to explain them I will be teaching it again, next [...]

  9. trumpets sound and angels sing I m done I stayed up until 11 37pm last night, finishing it, so I wouldn t have to endure such misery any longer Basically The book is terrible It was a good idea, I could see the potential, but the author ruined it with all the crudeness and unpleasant descriptions of some things And also the part in which he basically goes insane Maybe a retelling is in order In a slightly modern, or slightly ancient setting Possibly with time traveling And dragons And pirates [...]

  10. Swift is one of history s premier satirists, and his works transcend time and place My favorite of these two works is the 1729 essay A Modest Proposal in which the author purports to solve the problem of poverty and hunger in Ireland by eating young children I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled It takes a cons [...]

  11. Akin to an 18th century version of Monty Python, Gulliver s Travels uses satire to examine the trends and beliefs of its day Unfortunately, as someone else noted, only historians are likely to understand the satire in the first two books The third book, however, is easily understood by a modern reader, and provided a number of laughs The fourth book, while clear to a modern reader, is the least interesting of the four.A Modest Proposal, like the third book of Gulliver s Travels, also stands the [...]

  12. I had to read these for my British Literature class Gulliver s Travel s was intriguing and interesting A little bit of fun and fantasy was refreshing to read A little adventurous, and a new learning experience for a traveller I much enjoyed reading A Modest Proposal so much The satire is hilarious It s written so matter of fact, yet with undertones of humour and hilarity Jonathan Swift is a great satirist.

  13. Jonathan Swift took some literary swings at humanity.What I learned from this book can be summed up in this quote For they have no conception how a rational creature can be compelled, but only advised, or exhorted because no person can disobey reason, without giving up his claim to be a rational creature The beautiful and noble Houyhnhnms were, of course, my favorite characters.

  14. This book seemed to be nothing than the drunken rantings of an Irish man It was a good book, but it was very strange and weird A Modest Proposal was by far the funniest thing I have ever read though It is dripping with satire and just absolutely hilarious Anyone who takes it seriously is seriously an idiot, because there s no way it could even be considered as a real proposal.

  15. A wonderful collection of fantasy worlds and adventures on the surface with deeply satirical observations about human nature below There is a reason people are reading this after all this time I also enjoyed A Modest Proposal , but warn anyone who reads that about the satirical bent to all his works he doesn t mean what he says on its face value, so read between the lines.

  16. I found this book pretty fascinating because I wonder how one day you ll be a normal size and the next day you wake up and you re a giant I would not even want to be a giant because I am already tall and I would not like to be seen as a person who steps on people This book strangely reminds me of big feet.

  17. I was severely disappointed by this book Based on its reputation I expected so much The story was boring Of the four parts, the third was the most interesting While some of his satire on the failings of man are entertaining, the satire on the political scene in late 17th, early 18th century England just aren t that interesting.

  18. It took me a while to remember this book, but it was magnificent Swift was so darn clever and snarky I love snarky political commentary that is aimed not just at poking holes in our pretensions but challenging us to be better Swift was one of the earliest and still ranks as one of the best.

  19. Two masterpieces that had me believing I could become a satirist in no time Many newspapers had to endure my letters of which none were printed But I can t put the blame on Swift for making it look so easy.

  20. Gulliver s Travels was a great story of adventure I read as child I didn t come to understand the political satire until I started college My college experience has enriched the reading experience for me and I can appreciate the book on a different level.

  21. Lewis called Ovid a cheerful old degenerate and at the risk of making an oxymoron, I think Swift is a cheerful old misanthrope The journeys read quickly and completely avoid melodrama, the irony is supurb, and it is genuinely hilarious.

  22. I am re reading this classic book because it is hard to get free e books for my iPad from the library I use a few classics in between when I have problems getting newer books to read.I am understanding the satire much as an adult than I did as a young adult reading required reading.

  23. There s a reason these works are in every English Lit anthology I ve ever seen, and I ve seen a lot

  24. Perhpas I should try to read this with adult eyes However, I HATED Travels in high school Modest Proposal was okay though.
