Jonathan Swift's 'Gulliver's Travels' / The Houyhnhnms & The Yahoos
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper examining how Jonathan Swift satirizes both the rarified Houyhnhnms and the brutish Yahoos in Book IV of Gulliver's Travels. The writer concludes that just as man was not created to be bestial, he was not created to be completely rationalistic, either. To be caught in either trap robs man of the joy of life. No additional sources cited.
