Sobre El Autor

Apparently doomed to an obscure Anglican parsonage in Laracor, Ireland, even after he had written his anonymous masterpiece, A Tale of a Tub (c.1696), Swift turned a political mission to England from the Irish Protestant clergy into an avenue to prominence as the chief propagandist for the Tory mostrar más government. His exhilaration at achieving importance in his forties appears engagingly in his Journal to Stella (1710--13), addressed to Esther Johnson, a young protegee for whom Swift felt more warmth than for anyone else in his long life. At the death of Queen Anne and the fall of the Tories in 1714, Swift became dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. In Ireland, which he considered exile from a life of power and intellectual activity in London, Swift found time to defend his oppressed compatriots, sometimes in such contraband essays as his Drapier's Letters (1724), and sometimes in such short mordant pieces as the famous A Modest Proposal (1729); and there he wrote perhaps the greatest work of his time, Gulliver's Travels (1726). Using his characteristic device of the persona (a developed and sometimes satirized narrator, such as the anonymous hack writer of A Tale of a Tub or Isaac Bickerstaff in Predictions for the Ensuing Year, who exposes an astrologer), Swift created the hero Gulliver, who in the first instance stands for the bluff, decent, average Englishman and in the second, humanity in general. Gulliver is a full and powerful vision of a human being in a world in which violent passions, intellectual pride, and external chaos can degrade him or her---to animalism, in Swift's most horrifying images---but in which humans do have scope to act, guided by the Classical-Christian tradition. Gulliver's Travels has been an immensely successful children's book (although Swift did not care much for children), so widely popular through the world for its imagination, wit, fun, freshness, vigor, and narrative skill that its hero is in many languages a common proper noun. Perhaps as a consequence, its meaning has been the subject of continuing dispute, and its author has been called everything from sentimental to mad. Swift died in Dublin and was buried next to his beloved "Stella." (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Biografía breve
Jonathan Swift (30 November 1667 – 19 October 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, hence his common sobriquet, "Dean Swift".

Swift is remembered for works such as A Tale of a Tub (1704), An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity (1712), Gulliver's Travels (1726), and A Modest Proposal (1729). He is regarded by the Encyclopædia Britannica as the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. He originally published all of his works under pseudonyms – such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, M. B. Drapier – or anonymously. He was a master of two styles of satire, the Horatian and Juvenalian styles.

His deadpan, ironic writing style, particularly in A Modest Proposal, has led to such satire being subsequently termed "Swiftian".

Susceptible de ser leído como una sátira de la sociedad británica del Siglo XVIII tanto como un bello libro de aventuras, "Los viajes de Gulliver" narra las experiencias de Lemuel Gulliver, un cirujano y capitán que tras naufragar conoce una serie de mundos fantásticos habitados por personas diminutas, gigantes y sabios caballos parlantes.

Naturalmente, los fabulosos reinos visitados por Gulliver son constantemente comparados con Europa, si bien Swift insiste varias veces en hacer excepción de una Gran Bretaña magníficamente gobernada, lo que tampoco puede dejar de interpretarse en términos irónicos. Pero nada escapa al feroz sarcasmo del autor irlandés, dede la alta política a los bajos instintos, desde la religión a la alimentación. Es cierto que en los dos primeros viajes el lector se anima mucho con anécdotas más o menos divertidas (así, la extinción de un incendio en el palacio real de Liliput a base de orinar sobre él, lo que a la postre acabará obligando a Gulliver a abandonar ese país), y que los últimos viajes son algo más aburridos en este sentido, pero descripciones como la de las gran academia de los "sabios proyectistas" no dejan de arrancar sonrisas en el lector hasta el final, incluso aunque muchas de las puyas ya no sean aplicables a nuestros días. Pero, a pesar del tiempo, y aunque mucha de su carga irónica se haya perdido (no toda, en verdad), seguimos estando ante un clásico indudable… (más)

Con una traducción superiormente fiel al texto original de Jonathan Swift, esta edición de Los Viajes de Gulliver es recomendada para los lectores de habla hispana que buscan una versión no adulterada.
La sátira presente en Los Viajes de Gulliver es un deleite literario, pues me mantuvo entretenida de principio a fin con las desventuras de Gulliver en sus varias odiseas.
