Gulliver's Travels
The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background. The latest generation of titles in this series also feature glossaries and visual elements that complement the classic, familiar format.
In CliffsNotes on Gulliver's Travels,you follow the adventures of a man who is thought to be lost at sea but ends up traveling through many strange lands. The novel is a consciously funny satire that lampoons people's conceits and puffery with tales of abominable behavior. Jonathan Swift's masterpiece is both a social commentary and — in its abridged form — a children's classic.
This concise supplement to Swift's Gulliver's Travelshelps you understand the overall structure of the novel, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author. Features that help you study include
- Chapter-by-chapter summaries and commentaries
- Character analyses of major players
- A character map that graphically illustrates the relationships among the characters
- Critical essays
- A review section that tests your knowledge
Classic literature or modern modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.
