As a result, English society underwent significant, “changes in attitude and thought”, in an attempt to obtain the dignity and splendor of royalty and the upper class (McKendrick,2).

As a result, English society held themselves in very high regards, feeling that. The essays collected here offer the first comprehensive, integrated survey of that record.

They shed new light on the politics of the eighteenth-century book trade, on Swift's innovations as a maker of books, on the habits and opinions revealed by his commentary on printed texts and on the re-shaping of the Swiftian book after his death. Gulliver's Travels has been a notable gathering place, almost a convocation, for the severer sort of Western Critic who sees its satiric action as a vicious attack on the political and cultural institutions of eighteenth-century British civilization in.

Clearly, Swift intends for us to understand this episode as a satire of England’s system of political appointment and to infer that England’s system is similarly arbitrary.
