Swift : a collection of critical essays by Ernest Lee Tuveson( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 2,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twentieth century critics have rediscovered in Jonathan Swift an outspoken commentary on the complex and ultimately unsolvable mystery of human nature. The essays collected here document the process of the reversal which has rescued Swift from the disgust and near-hatred of earlier readers. Several paths to re-evaluation are followed by these critics. Through careful research they uncover the facts of Swift's political and social involvement and his part in the philosophical battles of his age. Their efforts reveal and artist who transcended the ordinary, who recast the moral climate of an age into the allegorical voyages of Lemuel Gulliver. The second part is an analysis of Swift's method. A third approach considers each part of Swift's masterpiece in the context of the whole oeuvre and the whole man. Is Gulliver Swift? Do the Yahoos really represent mankind? Is Houyhnhnmland really the perfect society? The critical reinstatement of a great author is a dramatic process and one that illuminates modern criticism at its creative best. -- From publisher's description

Excerpt from the publisher to the reader: "The author of these Travels, Mr. Lemuel Gulliver, is my ancient and intimate friend; there is likewise some relation between us on the mother's side. About three years ago, Mr. Gulliver growing weary of the concourse of curious people coming to him at his house in Redriff, made a small purchase of land, with a convenient house, near Newark, in Nottinghamshire, his native country; where he now lives retired, yet in good esteem among his neighbours.Although Mr. Gulliver was born in Nottinghamshire, where his father dwelt, yet I have heard him say his family came from Oxfordshire; to confirm which, I have observed in the churchyard at Banbury in that county, several tombs and monuments of the Gullivers."
