Here is my feminist outlook on Jonathan Swift's GULLIVER'S TRAVELS: Swift portrays women as inferior creatures in GT, comparing them to lusty, dirty, and ignorant animals, ultimately leading to Gulliver's disgust in women in general at the end of the novel. So basically, I am looking for any feminist criticism on GT proving that Swift was a misogynist who oppressed women in his novel (particularly relating to his comparison of women to animals in GT). I already have found Felicity A. Nussbaum's article "Gulliver's Malice: Gender and the Satiric Dance," so I am looking for other sources along the lines of that article. I am looking for scholarly articles, preferably available on the Internet.

Hello skewy-ga: I've found the following two articles. Carol Barash, "Violence and the Maternal: Swift, Psychoanalysis, and the 1720s" URL: http://social.chass.ncsu.edu/wyrick/debclass/barash.htm "Jonathan Swift?s Woman Problem" by Rita Hoffman URL: http://faculty.ccc.edu/colleges/wright/greatbooks/Program/Symposm/Issue%202%20Revised2.pdf Note: See starting on page 56. Please review them and let me know if they are along the right lines. If so, do you need more? If not, can you provide more details that would help in my search? Thanks. websearcher
