    Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift is one of the greatest satirical works ever written. Through the misadventures of Lemuel Gulliver, his hopelessly "modern" protagonist, Swift exposes many of the follies of the English Enlightenment, from its worship of science to its neglect of traditional philosophy and theology. Swift's satire on the threats posed by the Enlightenment and the embryonic spirit of secular fundamentalism makes Gulliver's Travels priceless reading for today's defenders of tradition.

Greatest Satire Ever Written

by Gedinho on Apr 18, 2010

Once again I'm amazed to find this book described as 'childrens book'.George Orwell described it as the greatest satire ever written(I think that was his wording)and I,in my much humbler opinion would agree.Admittedly I didn't immediately understand all the references Swift was alluding to,I had to do some further research.As far as I understand it's not far off a polemic on the England of Swift's time,he pokes fun at religion,history,research,law,the monarchy and many other facets of english life.And when he meets the Houyhnhnms,it's an absolute delight,especially to a fellow Irishman....sometimes even I can smell the foul,putrid stench of the brutish Yahoos(the english!).A really beautiful book and a joy to read.
