Example text

On the surface, it is a book of travels into highly improbable lands and hence a story of adventure. Underneath it is a fierce satire in which Swift attacks the pettiness and grossness of man, and unleashes his bitterness against fate and human society. It is not without its imaginative Utopian gimmicks: a race of very tiny people; another race of beings sixty feet tall; a society of philosophers and scientists (one of whom has spent eight years in trying to extract sunbeams from cucumbers a jibe at the Royal Society); and a truly Utopian land which is ruled in peace and integrity by a horselike people.

The name's overtones are what really annoy us. Assertions like ''Our Ford's T-Model" and "Ford's in his flivver, all's well with the world" make it very tempting for us to identify "Ford" with the Henry Ford of our own time. This is patently impossible on the evidence of history and dates. It might be that the brave new world did really look back to real founding fathers. In any case Huxley never explains, but merely uses "Ford" as a nonsense name to provide a little extra piquancy to his spoof.
