Perceptions of Satire in Gulliver's Travels InJonathan Swift published a book for English readers. On the surface, this book appears to be a travel log, made to chronicle the adventures of a man, Lemuel Gulliver, on the four most incredible voyages imaginable.

The author approaches the question of modernity in Swift by way of a theory of satire from Aristotle via Swift (and Bakhtin) that eschews modern notions that satire is meant to reform and correct.

Lemuel Gulliver, who. For historians of science, Jonathan Swift's book Gulliver's Travels is well known both as a work of what we might call proto-science fiction and as a satire.
