Gulliver's Travels

New Edition

Jonathan Swift
Claude Rawson and Ian Higgins

Oxford World's Classics

  • The fullest, most up-to-date paperback edition currently on the market. The introduction and notes, by two of the General Editors of the Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jonathan Swift, elucidate the work in line with the latest critical thinking and provide a wealth of background information and explanatory help.
  • Reproduces the 1735 edition of the text and includes for the first time not only the frontispiece and title-page from that edition but the frontispiece portraits of Gulliver/Swift that appeared in successive editions and whose subtle changes contribute to the reader's uncertainty about the veracity of the author
  • Up-to-date bibliography
  • New chronology

New to this Edition:

  • New introduction by Claude Rawson draws on the latest scholarship and considers Swift's role playing and the relationship of the author to Gulliver. Contains an astute analysis of the nature of Swift's satire
  • Frontispiece portraits of Gulliver/Swift
  • New, up-to-date bibliography
  • New chronology
  • New explanatory notes by Ian Higgins, removing now outdated interpretative areas
