Overview

Adopted at more than 1,000 colleges and universities, Bedford/St. Martin's innovative Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism series has introduced more than a quarter of a million students to literary theory and earned enthusiastic praise nationwide. Along with an authoritative text of a major literary work, each volume presents critical essays, selected or prepared especially for students, that approach the work from several contemporary critical perspectives, such as gender criticism and cultural studies. Each essay is accompanied by an introduction (with bibliography) to the history, principles, and practice of its critical perspective. Every volume also surveys the biographical, historical, and critical contexts of the literary work and concludes with a glossary of critical terms. New editions reprint cultural documents that contextualize the literary works and feature essays that show how critical perspectives can be combined.

FYI, this free Google download is only Volume 2 of 2. Even though it looks like you will be getting the full book, this ebook is only the second half.

Too many scanning and OCR errors to read -- avoid the frustration

This version was not scanned well and put nicely into a digital format. Try looking for another version of this tale.

I couldnt tell where the table of contents ended and the actual book began. Perhaps it only looks like this on my original nook?

Can't change font size on iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4. Disappointed. Will have to read on laptop.

Part I and II were quick reads filled with great fantasy which most of us see as THE Gulliver's Travels. Part III was a little boring and hard to get through and Part IV was a perfect combination of fantasy and Swift using great symbolism to strongly express his views.

Guliver's Travels is an exiting book as John Swift brings you in to the lives of: little peole, giants,and brings you into worlds of imortality, a floating island, a world were horses have peple as pets, and much more.

This book is simply the worst of all copies. First of all it makes no sense. Second most of it is like being washed in mud for 9 hrs then with no towel outside when its snowing. I really sugest that you DO NOT buy or read this book

This book was really engaging and it made me think. It is really interesting to imagine what life would be like if we were six inches or sixty feet tall.
