I find 'GULLIVER'S TRAVELS"one of the most interesting books ofSwift enjoyed till this day by all.As a teacher,I enjoy teaching this work though it is apity that many publishers and editors ignore the letters of capt.Gulliver to his cousinSympson and Sympson's letter.both the letters are important to understanding the work as well as understanding how Swift used the instrument of irony and the character of Gulliverfor his satiric intentions.

I am a student and Gulliver's Travels is my summer reading requirement and I will be taught this work next fall. I have read this book twice, and both times I found it boring and the thought of analyzing the book and Swift makes me cringe. I realize that the novel is a satire and I understand that Gulliver's character is used as a tool; I just don't like Swift's style. The novel is incredibly tedious and I wish English teachers would consult students before they made novels requirements.
