SatireSatire vs. Parody: Parody is an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect Satire is the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issuesA Voyage to Brobdingnag criticizes European religion and governmentChapter six attacks politicsHe said, he knew no Reason, why those who entertain Opinions prejudicial to the Publick, should be obliged to change, or should not be obliged to conceal them. And, as it was Tyranny in any Government to require the first, so it was Weakness not to enforce the second. (Swift, 1735, p.92)He laughed at my odd Kind of Arithmetick (Swift, 1735, p.92)I am well disposed to hope you may hitherto have escaped many Vices of your Country. (Swift,1735, p. 93)

Chapter 1Home for two months, Gulliver is restless (Swift, 1726, p. 53)Unknowingly anchor on Brobdingnag, sailors search for inhabitantsI observed a huge Creature walking after them (p. 55)Farm hand begins to harvest the field of cornGulliver meets the familyThe Company were the Farmer and wife, three children, and an old Grandmother (p.58)Having an eventful dinner

Chapter 2Meeting GlumdalclitchMy Mistress had a Daughter of nine Year old (Swift, 1726, p.63)News spreads about Gulliver, becomes entertainmentbegan to be known and talked of in the NeighborhoodVisiting LorbrulgrudPride of the Universe (p. 67)Becoming a BrobdingnagianI could now peak the Language tolerably well (p. 67)

Chapter 3Gulliver is sold to the QueenGulliver becomes popular at the palaceThe Queens dwarf plays tricks on Gulliver- bone, bowl of cream

Significance of the BrobdingnagiansGullivers sense of self-importance is diminishedI really began to imagine my self dwindled many Degrees below my usual Size. (p. 73)Giants are amused at the silly idea of human arrogancethe king observed how contemptible a Thing was human Grandeur, which could be mimicked in such diminutive insects as I (p. 72)

Chapter 4King and Queen bring Gulliver traveling throughout BrobdingnagThe size of the kingdom emphasizes Gullivers proportionGulliver meets the beggars and is disgusted by their foul condition up closealthough indeed the Sight was so nauseous, that it perfectly turned my Stomach. (p. 77)

Chapter 5I should have lived happy enough in that Country, if my Littleness had not exposed me to several ridiculous and troublesome Accidents (Swift, 1735, p. 79)Gulliver is content living in Brobdingnag; the only disadvantage is his sizeThere suddenly fell such a violent Shower of Hail the Hail-stones gave me such cruel Bangs all of the Body (Swift, 1735, p.79)The people of Brobdingnag see Gulliver as a novelty with no significance Gulliver has the opportunity to scrutinze the physical aspect of humans while in BrobdingnagBut, I conceive, that my Sense was more acute in Proportion to my Littleness (Swift, 1735, p.81)... far from being a tempting Sight, or from giving me any other Motions than those of Horror and Disgust (Swift, 1735, p. 82)

Chapter 6Gulliver attempts to educate the King about England He desired I would give him as exact an Account of the Government of England as I possibly could (Swift, 1735, p. 89)Gulliver discusses geography, Parliament, Courts of Justice, and various aspects of culture his Majesty in a sixth Audience consulting his Notes, proposed many Doubts, Queries, and Objections, upon every Article (Swift, 1735, p. 90)The King concludes the description of England is ridiculous I cannot but conclude the Bulk of your Natives, to be the most pernicious Race of little odious Vermin that Nature ever suffered to crawl upon the Surface of the Earth

Chapter 7Large differences between Brobdingnag and EnglandCriticism of English governmentSociety values agriculture, survival, and peaceMost new technology is dedicated to agricultural improvement

Chapter 8Picked up by an eagle while in his boxAlarmed by meeting normal-sized people againTravels against wife's wishesCan be compared to Huck Finn, although written much later
