A review of gullivers travels

This makes for fun and irony; what Gulliver says can be trusted to be accurate, and he does not always understand the meaning of what he perceives. She made sure her flowers were in perfect shape. It was not until almost ten years after its first printing that the book appeared with the entire text that Swift had originally intended it to have.

She was kind of sad all the time. Eventually Gulliver is picked up by an eagle and then rescued at sea by people of his own size. Despite his earlier intention of remaining at home, Gulliver returns to sea as the captain of a merchantmanas he is bored with his employment as a surgeon.

Gulliver returns home, determined to stay there for the rest of his days. Reading this book made me feel that Swift must really be quite a misanthrope, and that does not really suit me. However, an Assembly of the Houyhnhnms rules that Gulliver, a Yahoo with some semblance of reason, is a danger to their civilization and commands him to swim back to the land that he came from.
