This paper satirizes the politics involved in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. Through Gulliver's Travels, Swift attempted to satirize the proud eighteenth century population, who were too proud of the rapid scientific progress. Through my paper, I am trying to show how Swift uses Gulliver to satirize the society in the eighteenth century England and beyond. In showing Swift's satire of the social condition, the discussion of Lemuel Gulliver's voyages to four different lands becomes symbolic and significant. After going through his all four volumes of “Gulliver Travels” I believe that swift does not hate men rather hate Satan in men.

Key words: satirize, voyage, Lemuel Gulliver, politics and Criticism
