Discussion questions – Gulliver’s Travels Book I: “A Voyage to Lilliput”: Examine the lengthy list of titles the Emperor holds
- Examine the lengthy list of titles the Emperor holds (page 43). What is Swift doing to lampoon George I or perhaps all such royalty here?
- Examine closely the explanation of domestic and foreign affairs given by Reldresal. List the differences between the High Heels and the Low Heels. Note what heels the emperor favors. Which party represents the Whigs, and which the Tories? How does Swift bring out the preference of the Prince (later George II)?
