This series of books is designed to help students delineate various critical approaches to specific literary texts. The aim is to introduce the reader to as wide a selection of criticism as possible and to introduce them to further reading. Divided into two parts, each book begins with a critical survey of some of the major ways the text has been appraised. In the second part the authors provide appraisals from their own critical standpoint. The study examines the critical debate that surrounds Gulliver an considers the novel as a reinterpretation of a seemingly familiar world in ways which accentuate its strangeness.
