Novel is arguably swift’s greatest satiric attempt to ” shame men out of their vices”. The structure and the choice of metaphors also serve swift’s purpose of attacking politics , religion, morality, human nature and of course colonialism which is at the heart of the novel swift clearly undercuts the ideas endorsed by colonialism by demonstrating how the truth about people and objects is heavily influenced by the observer’s perception.
