Gulliver's Travels - Kindle Bookstore

Since its publication in 1726, Gulliver's Travels was a great success. Narrative of imaginary journeys, satire savage against corruption and human folly, philosophical treatise, a maze of irony and pretense, the book, Swift is an inexhaustible richness and timeliness amazing. Multilingual, talkative, sometimes informed and sometimes blinded observer who turns the naive enthusiasm to a chronic misanthropy, Gulliver recounts his adventures with a narrative voice whose instability and reflexivity give us the keys to work at the same time that they plunge us into doubt and perplexity. This study attempts to find a way through this treacherous terrain discourse without losing sight of the strength and conviction of one of the most controversial of all the English-language literature.
This fantastic satire of Jonathan Swift reveals almost mythic images that punctuate the narrative comic adventures of Gulliver: chained by the crowd of dwarves on the beach of Lilliput, transformed into a doll by a young giant ... The imagination and verve of Swift are here all their scope. A story that we thought we knew but it is essential to read to understand who was the 'Rabelais' from Ireland.

Gulliver's Travels [Kindle Edition]
by Jonathan Swift is classic work of satire and adventure that hardly needs my recommendation. Instead, let me comment on this edition published by Sterling. It's a nice hardcover with dustjacket and placeholder ribbon. There are a number of illustrations by Scott McKowen and an afterword by Arthur Pober. If you're looking for a inexpensive, but nice edition of Gulliver's Travels, this kindle books would be a good choice
