Jonathan Swift: Feminine Gender Roles
[ Click Here If This Is The Essay You Want ]
12 pages in length. Jonathan Swift is well-known for his scatological poems, in which he took great delight delving into matters of obscenity. Swift's particular preference was toward the female gender, which he often contemplated yet just as often treated with great indecency. In assessing 'The Lady's Dressing Room' and 'A Beautiful Young Nymph Going to Bed,' one gets a distinct feel for the manner in which Swift felt -- both physically and emotionally -- toward women, given the era and mentality in relation to the female gender. The writer discusses feminine gender roles in relation to the two poems, as well as addresses the issue of whether or not Swift was a misogynist. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

[ Click Here If This Is The Essay You Want ]

Jonathan Swift’s “Gulliver’s Travels”
[ Click Here If This Is The Essay You Want ]
This 6 page report discusses Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) and his most famous work, “Gulliver’s Travels.” It is the many distortions -- size, attitude, beliefs, actions -- that serve as the greatest insight into Swift’s story and the realm in which he presents the most thought-provoking of contrasts. For example, the differences that exist in the size of the Lilliputians, the Brobdingnag, and Gulliver all have a relevant significance to the larger (pun intended) story. No secondary sources.

[ Click Here If This Is The Essay You Want ]
5 pages in length. Eighteenth century philosophy especially tended to pride itself on having developed to the highest degree the renaissance faith in reason as the distinctive quality of man. Author Jonathan Swift's attitude to his era's view of reason as the sole criterion of value is what ultimately transpired in Book IV of "Gulliver's Travels."

Gulliver's Travels and Robinson Crusoe
[ Click Here If This Is The Essay You Want ]
Two of the more engaging books of the Romantic Era, Defoe's Robinson Crusoe and Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, are superficially very similar. Both describe the hero's travels to strange places and his adventures among outlandish peoples. They both reflect the literary need of the time to, at least on the surface, be based on true accounts; that is, the initial plot is within the realm of possibility and then treads lightly into a land of imagination. Swift uses the fictional story to make a moral and philosophical point, while Defoe proclaims his moral purpose like a revivalist, but puts in plenty of sensational, adventurous and imaginative detail to engage the reader. This 5 page paper asserts that the values that are represented in the life of Robinson Crusoe are those valued in Christianity: prudence, temperance, and the other qualities Crusoe needs for a good life on the island. His association with Friday is that of missionary to convert. Gulliver's attempts at self-perfection and proselytizing, his inability to achieve the Houyhnhnm ideal and his inability to recognize the Christian wisdom embodied in the Captain's charity, serve to mock both the Enlightenment idea of humanity's innate goodness and Christianity's desire for sanctification.
