Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry2 on Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 4:24am.

There were problems with my last post last night. I was ill and I didn't manage to include they things on Gulliver's travels I wanted you to check. Here is the first part of the rephrase. I've tried to rephrase the beginning of Chapter 11.


1)At the beginning of the passage, taken from Chapter 11 of Swift’s Gulliver’s travels, the Houyhnhnms are described as strong, beautiful, wise and fast horses full of virtues and intelligence.
2) Gulliver never refers to them as animals or horses but as his “master”, his “friends” or “amiable persons”. Gulliver venerates them and admits that the only valuable things he has learned in his life are those he has learned from his master.
3) He confesses he is prouder to listen to them than to speak in front of the greatest and wisest assembly. When he first met them, he wasn’t in awe of them as all the other animals were.
4)However, a sense of awe together with love and gratefulness gradually grew upon him. This is the reason why they consider him different from the rest of his species.
