Below is the outline of the slides used in the lesson: Jonathan Swift, Satire, and Gulliver's Travels Lesson Biography of Swift Satire—Definition and Examples Background of Gulliver's Travels Connections to the Project Jonathan Swift, 1667-1745 Born in Ireland of English, Anglican parents At a time when tensions between England and Ireland were high for political and religious reasons Conflicts with the English government over his family's politics after the English Civil War and over his writing Had a great sympathy for the Irish—became somewhat of a member of both cultures Became the Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin Satire A literary form (poetry, prose, or drama) that exaggerates tendencies to make people laugh as a form of protest Uses humor as a weapon A more enlightened form of sarcasm Can be subtle or blatant, and can be serious or silly Examples of Satire How Satire Works Literal Satire: looks, feels, seems just like realistic art, but little things are exaggerated to show how ridiculous they are Unrealistic Satire (like Gulliver's Travels): fantastic places and unrealistic settings serve as metaphors for the world we live in When people laugh, they are more relaxed and willing to engage with a speaker or artist When people see things that aren't them but who do the same things they do, they can look at those things more objectively Gulliver's Travels Travel narrative—Lemuel Gulliver goes to four places: Liliput—the land of the small people Brobdingnag—the land of the giants Laputa—the land of the "scientists" The Land of the Houyhnhnms—talking horses who have more reason than men Gulliver's Travels Liliput—Swift makes fun of people's pettiness; for example, two political parties fight furiously over which end of an egg should be cracked Brobdingnag—By encountering giant humans, Gulliver shows us just how disgusting people are Laputa—The scientists of Laputa are so busy with all of their imaginary learning that their wives go astray Gulliver's Travels The Land of the Houyhnhnms In comparison to humans, horses seem very wise, just, and reasonable—so much for the Enlightenment Gulliver comes to identify with the horses and not the Yahoos—a race of human-ish creatures that have all of humanity's worst qualities What is a human? What is an animal? Are humans all that great? Connection to the Project Swift shows us slavery, racism, and genocide, and he asks us questions about all of them He makes us question the Enlightenment and the very idea of civilization and who is civilized Like many Enlightenment thinkers, he realized that Europe needed to humble itself Lesson Completed—Good Job I have provided a read-along for this Be prepared to write about satirical episodes in the selections from the book that I have given you—like a metaphor, what's the tenor and what's the vehicle, and what's Swift's purpose for the satire?

Jonathan Swift: Gulliver's Travels
 
30:42
Jonathan Swift (30 November 1667 -- 19 October 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. He is remembered for works such as Gulliver's Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, Drapier's Letters, The Battle of the Books, An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity, and A Tale of a Tub. Swift is probably the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. Swift originally published all of his works under pseudonyms—such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, M.B. Drapier—or anonymously. He is also known for being a master of two styles of satire: the Horatian and Juvenalian styles. Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, in Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift (also known as Dean Swift) that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. The book became popular as soon as it was published (John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery"); since then, it has never been out of print. Gulliver's Travels has been the recipient of several designations: from Menippean satire to a children's story, from proto-Science Fiction to a forerunner of the modern novel. Published seven years after Daniel Defoe's wildly successful Robinson Crusoe, Gulliver's Travels may be read as a systematic rebuttal of Defoe's optimistic account of human capability. In The Unthinkable Swift: The Spontaneous Philosophy of a Church of England Man Warren Montag argues that Swift was concerned to refute the notion that the individual precedes society, as Defoe's novel seems to suggest. Swift regarded such thought as a dangerous endorsement of Thomas Hobbes' radical political philosophy and for this reason Gulliver repeatedly encounters established societies rather than desolate islands. The captain who invites Gulliver to serve as a surgeon aboard his ship on the disastrous third voyage is named Robinson.

For better understanding English subtitles have been added. ... —recounts the story of Lemuel Gulliver, a practical-minded Englishman trained as a surgeon who takes to the seas when his business fails —in a deadpan looking or seeming serious when you are telling a joke 1st first-person narrative that rarely shows any signs of self-reflection or deep emotional response, Gulliver narrates the adventures that befall him on these travels —adventure in Lilliput begins when wakes after shipwreck to find himself bound by innumerable tiny threads and addressed by tiny captors in awe of him but fiercely protective of their kingdom —are not afraid to use violence against Gulliver, though their arrows are little more than pinpricks a very small hole in something where a pin or needle has been pushed into it, or a sudden pain where a pin or needle has been pushed into your skin —but overall—hospitable, risking famine in land by feeding Gulliver, who consumes more food than a thousand Lilliputians combined could —taken into the capital city by a vast wagon the Lilliputians have specially built —presented to the emperor entertained by Gulliver, just as Gulliver is flattered by the attention of royalty —eventually becomes a national resource, used by the army in its war against the people of Blefuscu, whom the Lilliputians hate for doctrinal differences concerning the proper way to crack eggs —but things change—Gulliver convicted of treason for putting out a fire in the royal palace with his urine and is condemned to be shot in the eyes and starved to death —escapes to Blefuscu—able to repair a boat he finds and to set sail for England —after staying in England with his wife and family for 2 months—undertakes next sea voyage, which takes to a land of giants called Brobdingnag —a field worker discovers him—initially treats as little more than an animal, keeping him for amusement —farmer eventually sells Gulliver to the queen, who makes him a courtly diversion and is entertained by his musical talents —social life is easy for Gulliver after his discovery by the court, but not particularly enjoyable —often repulsed by the physicality of the Brobdingnagians, whose ordinary flaws are many times magnified by their huge size —thus—when a couple of courtly ladies let him play on their naked bodies—not attracted but rather disgusted by their enormous skin pores a very small hole in the skin of people or other animals, or a similar hole on the surface of plants or rocks and the sound of their torrential urination —generally startled by the ignorance of the people here—even the king knows nothing about politics —more unsettling findings in Brobdingnag come in the form of various animals of the realm that endanger his life —even Brobdingnagian insects leave slimy trails on his food that make eating difficult —on a trip to the frontier, accompanying the royal couple—leaves Brobdingnag when his cage is plucked up by an eagle and dropped into the sea … The writer is Assistant Professor of English & Director, Language Centre, University of Information Technology & Sciences.

The Political Ideal: More's Utopia and Swift's Gulliver's Travels
 
03:35
HSP Summer 2016 Course Promotional This seminar will focus on the ideal political state as it is represented in More's Utopia (1516) and Swift's Gulliver's Travels (1726). There are no incontrovertibly valid answers to the question of what constitutes the ideal state and how it may be realized, and neither Utopia nor Gulliver Travels pretends to advance them. The works are fictional, and the methods are literary—a Platonic dialogue and a prose satire. Each work advances two arguments, one that affirms the ideal political state and the other that rejects its possibility. Neither author endorses one argument over the other. The result is ironic detachment and openness rather than closure. Such openness and irony may not admit of concrete proposals for reform, but they do provide for a searching inquiry into the ideal political state and the capacity of humans achieve it. Presented by Dr. Peter Medine More information can be found at: http://hsp.arizona.edu/
Life of Jonathan Swift the Satirist
 
06:00
This is a brief biography of the greatest satirist Jonathan Swift, an author "Gulliver's Travels". The voice is by Ivona Brian (British) with English subtitle. ... —son of the English lawyer Jonathan Swift the elder, was born in Dublin, Ireland, on 30 November 1667 —grew up there in the care of his uncle before attending Trinity College at the age of 14, where he stayed for 7 years, graduating in 1688 —in that year—became the secretary of Sir William Temple, an English politician and member of the Whig party —in 1694—took religious orders in the Church of Ireland and then spent a year as a country parson —then spent further time in the service of temple before returning to Ireland to become the chaplain of the earl of Berkeley —meanwhile, had begun to write satires on the political and religious corruption surrounding him, working on A Tale of a Tub, which supports the position of the Anglican Church against its critics on the left and the right, and The Battle of the Books, which argues for the supremacy of the classics against modern thought and literature —also wrote a number of political pamphlets in favour of the Whig party —in 1709—went to London to campaign for the Irish church but was unsuccessful —after some conflicts with the Whig party, mostly because of Swift’s strong allegiance to the church—became a member of the more conservative Tory party in 1710 —unfortunately for Swift, the Tory government fell out of power in 1714 and despite fame for writings—fell out of favour —had been hoping to be assigned a position in the Church of England, instead returned to Dublin, where became the dean of St. Patrick’s —during his brief time in England—had become friends with writers such as Alexander Pope, and during a meeting of their literary club, the Martinus Scriblerus Club, they decided to write satires of modern learning —3rd voyage of Gulliver’s Travels is assembled from the work Swift did during this time —however, final work was not completed until 1726—narrative of the 3rd voyage was actually the last one completed —after his return to Ireland—became a staunch supporter of the Irish against English attempts to weaken their economy and political power, writing pamphlets such as the satirical A Modest Proposal, in which—suggests—Irish problems of famine and overpopulation could be easily solved by having the babies of poor Irish subjects sold as delicacies to feed the rich —Gulliver’s Travels was a controversial work when first published in 1726 —in fact—it was not until almost 10 years after its first printing—book appeared with the entire text Swift had originally intended it to have —ever since, editors have excised many of the passages, particularly the more caustic ones dealing with bodily functions —even without those passages, however, Gulliver’s Travels serves as a biting satire, and Swift ensures—both humorous and critical, constantly attacking British and European society through its descriptions of imaginary countries —late in life—seemed to many observers to become even more caustic describes a remark or way of speaking that is hurtful , critical or intentionally unkind and bitter than he had been —3 years before death—was declared unable to care for himself, and guardians were appointed —based on these facts and on a comparison between Swift’s fate and that of his character Gulliver, some people have concluded—gradually became insane—insanity was a natural outgrowth of his indignation and outrage against humankind —however—truth seems to be—was suddenly incapacitated to make someone unable to work or do things normally, or unable to do what they intended to do by a paralytic stroke late in life—prior to this incident—mental capacities were unimpaired —Gulliver’s Travels is about a specific set of political conflicts, but if it were nothing more than that it would long ago have been forgotten —staying power of the work comes from its depiction of the human condition and its often despairing, but occasionally hopeful, sketch of the possibilities for humanity to rein in its baser instincts

Great Books: GULLIVER'S TRAVELS
 
52:21
Over four make-believe voyages, Jonathan Swift sets out to ask the question: what is true human nature? As his Gulliver novels (and his "Modest Proposal") are examined, we see that Swift himself was as vexing and enigmatic as the works themselves. The Great Books series was a standout on cable TV in the 1990s - a highly entertaining yet educational survey of great works of world literature.

01:33
Jonathan Swift (30 November 1667 – 19 October 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. Swift is remembered for works such as Gulliver's Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, Drapier's Letters, The Battle of the Books, An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity and A Tale of a Tub. He is regarded by the Encyclopædia Britannica as the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. He originally published all of his works under pseudonyms – such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, Drapier's Letters as MB Drapier – or anonymously. He is also known for being a master of two styles of satire, the Horatian and Juvenalian styles. His deadpan, ironic writing style, particularly in A Modest Proposal, has led to such satire being subsequently termed "Swiftian".

[SWIFT, Jonathan], Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships, London: Benj[amin] Motte, 1726. You can view this item on our website here: http://www.peterharrington.co.uk/rare-books/english-literature-pre-1900/travels-into-several-remote-nations-of-the-world-4/ Presented by Adam Douglas, Senior Rare Book Specialist at Peter Harrington. 2 volumes, octavo (192 x 117 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, spines with double gilt rules either side of bands, red morocco labels, gilt roll to board edges, edges sprinkled red. Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (second state, as called for), 4 maps and 2 plans. Early ownership inscription of S. Hamond on first title, initials on second; earlier bookplates removed from pastedowns; recent book labels of Pierre Bergé. A touch of rubbing, but a remarkably fine copy in original state, highly desirable thus. First edition, Teerink’s A edition with all the necessary points to distinguish it from the two later printings (Teerink AA and B) also dated 1726. Teerink’s A was published on 28 October, AA some time in the middle of November, and the B edition in December. The first five editions of Gulliver’s Travels (three octavo editions in 1726, one octavo and one duodecimo edition in 1727) were all published by Benjamin Motte. “The clandestine business of getting into print a pseudonymous and satirically explosive political satire entitled Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World (known from the start by its more popular title, Gulliver’s Travels) was managed chiefly by Pope, with the assistance of John Gay and Erasmus Lewis. For speed, and to counter the risk of piracy, Motte used five printing houses (those of Edward Say, Henry Woodfall, James Bettenham, William Pearson, and, for the greatest share, that of Jane Ilive). The first edition appeared on 28 October 1726 in two octavo volumes at the price of 8s. 6d., but with unauthorized deletions and insertions by Andrew Tooke (the brother of Benjamin Tooke jun.), and sold out within a week. Gay wrote: ‘From the highest to the lowest it is universally read, from the Cabinet-council to the Nursery’ … Motte followed up with two more octavo editions in 1726 and a duodecimo in 1727, and there was a serialized version which began in the Penny Post (25 November 1726). There were two Dublin editions before the end of 1726, each set up from Motte’s first edition… The book sold well in French: the first complete translation appeared at The Hague in January 1727, and an abridged adaptation by the Abbé Desfontaines in Paris in April … Swift received from Motte £200 and possibly more from the sales of the book, largely due to Pope’s effort at instilling into his friend the principles of ‘prudent management’ … Gulliver’s Travels is the book by which Swift is chiefly remembered, and it is the record of his own experience in politics under Queen Anne as an Irishman in what G. B. Shaw called ‘John Bull’s other island'” (ODNB). Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels, first edition, 1726. Peter Harrington Rare Books. https://youtu.be/VG21oL_IflE

My father had a small estate in Nottinghamshire: I was the third of five sons. He sent me to Emanuel College in Cambridge at fourteen years old, where I resided three years, and applied myself close to my studies; but the charge of maintaining me, although I had a very scanty allowance, being too great for a narrow fortune, I was bound apprentice to Mr. James Bates, an eminent surgeon in London, with whom I continued four years. And my father then sending me small sums of money, I laid them out in learning navigation, and other parts of the mathematics, useful to those who intend to travel, as I always believed it would be, some time or other, my fortune to do. When I left Mr. Bates, I went down to my father: where, by the assistance of him and my uncle John, I got forty pounds, and a promise of thirty pounds a year to maintain me at Leyden: there I studied physic two years and seven months, knowing it would be useful in long voyages. Soon after my return from Leyden, I was recommended by my good master, Mr. Bates, to be surgeon to the Swallow, Captain Abraham Pannel, commander; with whom I continued three years and a half, making a voyage or two into the Levant, and some other parts. When I came back I resolved to settle in London; to which Mr. Bates, my master, encouraged me, and by him I was recommended to several patients. I took part of a small house in the Old Jewry; and being advised to alter my condition, I married Mrs. Mary Burton, second daughter to Mr. Edmund Burton, hosier, in Newgate-street, with whom I received four hundred pounds for a portion. But my good master Bates dying in two years after, and I having few friends, my business began to fail; for my conscience would not suffer me to imitate the bad practice of too many among my brethren. Having therefore consulted with my wife, and some of my acquaintance, I determined to go again to sea. I was surgeon successively in two ships, and made several voyages, for six years, to the East and West Indies, by which I got some addition to my fortune. My hours of leisure I spent in reading the best authors, ancient and modern, being always provided with a good number of books; and when I was ashore, in observing the manners and dispositions of the people, as well as learning their language; wherein I had a great facility, by the strength of my memory.

Fifteen hundred of the Emperors largest horses, each about four inches and an half high, were employed to draw me towards the Metropolis, which, as I said, was half a Mile distant A savage and hilarious satire, Gullivers Travels sees Lemuel Gulliver shipwrecked and adrift, subject to bizarre and unnerving encounters with, among others, quarrelling Lilliputians, philosophising horses and the brutish Yahoo tribe, that change his view of humanity and himself for ever.

NYSL: Leo Damrosch, Jonathan Swift: His Life and His World
 
57:19
Jonathan Swift is best remembered today as the author of Gulliver's Travels, the satiric fantasy that quickly became a classic and has remained in print for nearly three centuries. Yet Swift also wrote many other influential works, was a major political and religious figure in his time, and became a national hero, beloved for his fierce protest against English exploitation of his native Ireland. What is really known today about the enigmatic man behind these accomplishments? Can the facts of his life be separated from the fictions? In this deeply researched biography, Leo Damrosch draws on discoveries made over the past thirty years to tell the story of Swift's life anew. Probing holes in the existing evidence, he takes seriously some daring speculations about Swift's parentage, love life, and various personal relationships and shows how Swift's public version of his life—the one accepted until recently—was deliberately misleading. Swift concealed aspects of himself and his relationships, and other people in his life helped to keep his secrets. In his lecture, Damrosch will describe the challenges facing a biographer whose subject lived three hundred years ago and who deliberately kept secrets from his closest friends, let alone from posterity. Circumstantial evidence is often the only kind available, and exploring its implications can become a compelling detective story. It is also possible, through images as well as texts, to recreate the sights and sounds of that long-ago world and bring it back to life. Leo Damrosch is Ernest Bernbaum Research Professor of Literature at Harvard University. He is the author of nine books, including Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Restless Genius, a National Book Award Finalist, and Tocqueville's Discovery of America.
Jonathan Swift: Gullivers Travels
 
35:55
Jonathan Swift (30 1667 -- 19 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St. Patricks Cathedral, Dublin. He is remembered for works such as Gullivers Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, Drapiers Letters, The Battle of the Books, An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity, and A Tale of a Tub. Swift is probably the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. Swift originally published all of his works under pseudonyms—such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, M.B. Drapier—or anonymously. He is also known for being a master of two styles of satire: the Horatian and Juvenalian styles. Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, in Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gullivers Travels (1726, amended 1735), is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift (also known as Dean Swift) that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the travellers tales literary sub-genre. It is Swifts best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. The book became popular as soon as it was published (John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery); since then, it has never been out of print. Gullivers Travels has been the recipient of several designations: from Menippean satire to a childrens story, from proto-Science Fiction to a forerunner of the modern novel. Published seven years after Daniel Defoes wildly successful Robinson Crusoe, Gullivers Travels may be read as a systematic rebuttal of Defoes optimistic account of human capability. In The Unthinkable Swift: The Spontaneous Philosophy of a Church of England Man Warren Montag argues that Swift was concerned to refute the notion that the individual precedes society, as Defoes novel seems to suggest. Swift regarded such thought as a dangerous endorsement of Thomas Hobbes radical political philosophy and for this reason Gulliver repeatedly encounters established societies rather than desolate islands. The captain who invites Gulliver to serve as a surgeon aboard his ship on the disastrous third voyage is named Robinson.
