Gulliver’s Travels

I have added a few more links to the Pre-1914 prose page, including one to an excellent short online course.

I very strongly recommend you all in year 11 to work your way through this. Depending on your speed of reading, and how long you take over the quizzes or any note-taking, you could work through this in as little as half an hour; certainly it shouldn’t take more than about an hour, and you’ll be able to tell people you have completed a university course (sort of). You are required to register your address and email details as it is a course provided by the University of Washington, and they need to be able to track the use of their courses. They have a strict privacy policy so your details will not be passed on to anyone else; it is quite safe.

The course is particularly useful for filling in some of the details of the historical, political, social and religious background to the story, which I am able to touch on only briefly in class.

The course can be found here
