Students will therefore welcome the publication of Roger Lund’s sourcebook, which provides a clear way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surounds the text. This indispensable guide presents: extensive introductory comment on the contexts and many interpretations of the text, from publication to present annotated extracts from key contextual documents, reviews, critical works and the text itself cross-references between documents and sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism suggestions for further reading. Part of the Routledge Gudies to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of Swift’s controversial novel.
