Pressestimmen

"An excellent edition: I have used the Penguin edition, but yours is superior. The notes are much more useful, especially in a history class in which the context of the work is emphasized."--Winfield J.C. Meyers, University of Georgia"The best cheap paperback edition available with an excellent, informative, and readable introduction by Paul Turner."--W.G. Walton, Jr., Meredith College"This edition has excellent notes - better than Penguins. Aim for their market with more editions of this quality and you'll capture much of their market." --Winfield J. Myers, University of Georgia

Jonathan Swift shows in this excellently written story an eternal human experience. Its actuality after 200 years shows the eternal value of his thoughts also for today's​ political and social life.

I like that this edition preserves the original 18th Century spelling, punctuation and grammar. Too many editions modernize or Americanize the text. The notes at the back are helpful but not intrusive. And it has an overall feel of quality, even though a paperback.
I own upwards of 30 editions of Gulliver and this is the one I refer to most often when I need to check a citation or another point of information. I also recommend it immediately to anyone asking for an informative edition. It helps that it is inexpensive and in-print, but it would be my recommendation even if it was harder to come by.

Gulliver`s Travels is esentially a book about human nature , its capacities and its limitations . The first voyage to Liliput is the most charming as it is used the play of proportions .Gulliver is a giant among the people so small that they look like"tiny animals ". The liliputans represent the weak creature who yet has much courage , inventedness and curiosity in the face of the danger . Their moral smalness suggest that nomatter the size , man is a political animal and at the same time the emptiness of public grandour of which swift laughs ironically.As an examle , the qualities required for officers in the state to obtain a social position:ballancing on the rope ; the desire of getting as many titles as possible . Gulliver became an embarassment because of his good consumption of food . His enemies wanted to put him to death . His punishment is changed to blinding . Their thinking is selfish . His carcasses will be smaller at his death and less likely to produce infections in the country ; by starving him he will be smaller . the idea is that where political action is in question , morality has nothing to do with the matter . - Lilliput shows the smallness in man , his pride in money , his political uselessness .
THE SECOND VOYAGE -Gulliver himself makes in his comments some links between the first and the second voyage . They are linked on the very device they are based: the relative size . The device is a satiric one . - the brobdingnags are large men and as a result of this we see clearly our phisical graceness . - Gulliver has to face different degrating physical adventures . - He is put in a cage like an animal . - Swift let us understand that physical size means moral largeness . Giants are generous , warm and human .

Gulliver's Travels is a fantastic book. It can be read in either two ways:
a) Just a good story full of andventure and irony; great for children.
or
b) The above is just the framework for a satire on humanity, perfectly exposing mankind's hypocrisy.
Of course, it is also a classic; one of those everyone knows about, but most have not read ( at least the original, not a Disney copy, etc. ). And since almost everyone knows what the story is about, I will refrain from giving a synopsis here.
It also really cheap, so go on, buy the book and give it a try. You won't regret it.

Gulliver's Travels is an excellent book. In it Swift satirizes what he thought were the foibles of his time, in politics, religion, science, and society. In Part One Lemuel Gulliver is shipwrecked on Lilliput where the inhabitants are only 6 inches tall. The rivalry between Britain and France is there satirized. In Part Two he is marooned on the subcontinent of Brobdingnag where the inhabitants are giants. The insignificance of many of mankind's achievements are there satirized. Next in Part Three Gulliver is taken aboard the floating island of Laputa, where Swift takes the opportunity to satirize medicine and science altogether - incredibly Swift did not make up the crazy experiments he describes; all were sponsored at one time or another by the Royal Society. Finally in Part Four Gulliver is marooned by mutineers on the island of the Houyhnhynms, in which Swift takes his parting shot at human society - presenting them in degraded form as the Yahoos. Most people read no further in the book than Brobdingnag - I urge you to read the rest.

Bei dieser Ausgabe (Collins Classics) handelt es sich leider um einer der zensierten Ausgaben. Eine echte Enttäuschung, da wichtige Stellen einfach ausgelassen werden. Sehr von Nachteil, weil diese Stellen gerade besonders ironsich sind und daher elemenat wichtig für das Verständis des Buches ist... Einfach nur enttäuschend...

Swift's classic satire of English and European governments, societies, and cultures should be required reading of every college student. (Except for those who appear to be in law school as is the earlier reviewer who referred to Swift as being an "18th century Unabomber." Swift may have been conservative in his beliefs and not cared much for individuals such as Robert Boyle, who is satirized in the book, but he was not violent. Perhaps our "law student/reviewer" is offended by Swift's biting satire of lawyers and politicians in part four.) The version I read was an annotated edition by Isaac Asimov and contained many passages that had been deleted by previous publishers. Asimov's comments enable the reader to more fully appreciate Swift's satire. In part one of the novel, a ship's surgeon, Lemuel Gulliver, is shipwreaked and finds himself on the island of Lilliput, the inhabitants all being only six inches high. This section is great satire of English politics and wars. Royal ponp, feuds amongst the populace, and wars are made to look rediculous. In the second part, Gulliver finds himself in Brobdingnag in which he is only six "inches" tall (relatively speaking). This part forms another satire of European governments. In part three, Gulliver visits the flying island of Laputa where shades of ancient scholars can be called up. This section is a satire on philosophers and scientists. Scientists are portrayed as men so wrapped up intheir speculations as to be totally useless in practical affairs. Absurd experiments are described (for example, extracting sunlight from cucumbers (but, extracting energy from cucumbers and other plants is no longer so absurd Jonathan)).Lesen Sie weiter... ›
