    Gullivers Reisen (Illustrated) (German Edition) Door: Jonathan Swift,

    Gullivers Reisen (englisch Gulliver’s Travels) ist ein satirischer Roman des irischen Schriftstellers, anglikanischen Priesters und Politikers Jonathan Swift. In der Originalfassung besteht der Roman aus vier Teilen und wurde 1726 unter dem Titel Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World in Four Parts By Lemuel Gulliver, first a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships veröffentlicht. In anschaulicher Erzählweise bringt Swift seine Verbitterung über zeitgenössische Missstände und seine Auffassung von der Relativität der menschlichen Werte zum Ausdruck. Durch die anschauliche Erzählweise der zweiteiligen Kinderbuchausgabe, in welcher Gulliver erst das Land der Zwerge entdeckt und dann im Land der Riesen landet, und in der die sozialkritischen und satirischen Positionen fehlen, wurde das Werk zu einem weltbekannten Jugendbuch. Der Roman ist, nach Campanellas Civitas solis und Bacons Nova Atlantis, der Höhepunkt einer im Gegensatz zu religiösen Entwürfen stehenden Gattung, die ohne unmittelbare Wirklichkeitsansprüche Bilder einer idealen Gesellschaft zum Thema haben.Das satirische Werk gliedert sich in vier Teile, die den vier Reisen Gullivers entsprechen:Nach Liliput, ins Land der zwergenhaften LiliputanerNach Brobdingnag, ins Land der RiesenNach Laputa, Balnibarbi, Glubbdubdrib, Luggnagg und JapanIns Land der Houyhnhnms und Yahoos

    Les voyages de Gulliver (low cost). Édition limitée: (annotée) (French Edition) Door: Jonathan Swift,

    Les Voyages de Gulliver marquent un sommet de la satire sociale et politique au travers d’éléments mêlant, sur le mode du pamphlet ou de la description narrative, de la philosophie, de la logique, du fantastique et de la science-fiction.Le roman a été écrit par Swift après le krach de 1720. Il avait acheté des actions de la Compagnie des mers du Sud pour 1 000 livres. La spéculation avait fait passer la valeur d'une action de 128 livres à 1 050 livres, avant de s'effondrer ruinant bon nombre de commerçants britanniques. Cet accroissement puis cette miniaturisation de la richesse en un temps très court a dû donner à Swift l'idée des changements de taille relative de son personnage principal qui serait une métaphore de ce krach en donnant à Swift l'occasion de se moquer des travers de la société de son temps.

    Gulliver's Travels (World Classics, Unabridged) Door: Jonathan Swift,

    Gulliver's Travels describes the four voyages of Lemuel Gulliver, a ship's surgeon. In Lilliput he discovers a world in miniature; towering over the people and their city, he is able to view their society from the viewpoint of a god. However, in Brobdingnag, a land of giants, tiny Gulliver himself comes under observation, exhibited as a curiosity at markets and fairs. In Laputa, a flying island, he encounters a society of speculators and projectors who have lost all grip on everyday reality; while they plan and calculate, their country lies in ruins. Gulliver's final voyage takes him to the land of the Houyhnhnms, gentle horses whom he quickly comes to admire - in contrast to the Yahoos, filthy bestial creatures who bear a disturbing resemblance to humans.

He is also given permission by the King of Lilliput to go around the city on condition that he must not harm their subjects.At first, the Lilliputians are hospitable to Gulliver, but they are also wary of the threat that his size poses to them. The Lilliputians reveal themselves to be a people who put great emphasis on trivial matters. For example, which end of an egg a person cracks becomes the basis of a deep political rift within that nation. They are a people who revel in displays of authority and performances of power. Gulliver assists the Lilliputians to subdue their neighbors the Blefuscudians by stealing their fleet. However, he refuses to reduce the island nation of Blefuscu to a province of Lilliput, displeasing the King and the royal court.Gulliver is charged with treason for, among other crimes, "making water" in the capital though he was putting out a fire and saving countless lives. He is convicted and sentenced to be blinded. With the assistance of a kind friend, "a considerable person at court", he escapes to Blefuscu.

    A Modest Proposal Door: Jonathan Swift,

    Jonathan Swift almost defines satire in this biting and brutal pamphlet in which he suggests that poor (Catholic) Irish families should fatten up their children and sell them to the rich (Protestant) land owners, thus solving the twin problems of starving children and poverty in one blow. When the "Proposal" was published in 1729, Swift was quickly attacked, and even accused of barbarity - the exact state the "Proposal" was written to expose.
