Still image from Gulliver's Travels

What is our basic human nature? Jonathan Swift explores this question in his great satire of English culture and politics during the Age of Reason. Donald Sutherland narrates this critical analysis of "Gulliver's Travels," a story of a young man who encounters four very different societies that represent four groups in his English world. Uses drawings, scholars' comments, and film clips to illustrate. Questions and activities follow the credits.
