Gulliver's Travels (Cliffs Notes)
Publisher: Cliffs Notes | ISBN: 0764586785 | edition 2000 | PDF | 112 pages | 1,12 mb
A consciously funny book of travel, adventure, and caricature, Swift sets out to lampoon the conceits and puffery of people with stories of abominable behavior. Swift's book about a man lost at sea who encounters many strange lands is both a social commentary and a children's classic in its abridged form.
This concise supplement to Swift's Gulliver's Travels helps students understand the overall structure of the novel, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author.
