Can someone correct these questions, please? Thank you very much in advance.
1) Briefly outline the features of the 18th-century novel focussing on the type of narrator, the hero and the time and place setting.
2) Analyze the structure of Swift's Gulliver's Travels dwelling upon the description of his voyages around the world. How is Gulliver described at the beginning of the novel and how does his personality change on his return to Europe?
3) Focus on the first Hanoverians and answer briefly the following questions. What were the first political parties in Britain, where did they descend from and who sided with them? What did the meetings of the Whig ministers develop into and what advantages did Britain get from Robert Walpole’s policy? What values did his opponent, William Pitt, encourage? Which social class (classes) gained prestige in the 18th century England? What were living conditions for the poor like and what kind of diseases were they affected by?
