This novel is considered both a satire on human nature and a parody of traveller's tales. It is an indisputable classic of English literature, and Swift's most celebrated work. George Orwell reckons it to be one of the six indispensable books in world literature. The novel's main themes are; a satirical view of government and religious differences, an exploration of man being inherently corrupt or simply corruptible, and ancients vs. moderns conflict.
