This new critical introduction to Gulliver's Travels provides a fresh and impartial account of this world-famous satire. It presents Swift's work in its historical and literary context, and explores its allusions, its four-part structure, its narrative strategy and its prose style. A final chapter sketches the fictional aftermath of the Travels from the eighteenth to the twentieth century, and there is a guide to further reading.
