Concise guides to world literature classics, Twayne's Masterwork Studies are written with the general reader and senior high school and undergraduate students in mind.

The Masterwork Study is the essential first-step critique. -- Clear, conversational language -- Illuminates the central themes and concepts of the work -- Chronology of the author's life and times -- Essay on the historical context of the work -- Overview of the work's critical reception "Suitable not only for students but also for general readers inspired to reread the classics". -- Booklist "A welcome addition to the ranks of major readings". -- Choice In this engaging study, Ronald Knowles explores the many layers of meaning in Jonathan Swift's finest work of satire.

Knowles implies that Gulliver's Travels is not only a product of the political issues of Swift's time, but also a "modern" work of literature.
