  2. OK, for situational irony, I think one example is when Boxer is being taken away, the animals are told that he was taken to a hospital where he was very well cared for until his last breath, but he was actually taken to his death.
    Is that one?

    Thanks

  7. Like Swift, Gulliver becomes upset with the iunesticjs he sees in the world. If you've ever read Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal," you will see how he attempts to condemn and satire the corrupt political situation of Ireland, as he suggests that they eat their children and use them, like their skin, to produce goods that will boost the economy. Swift is simply suggesting the corruptness of politics, and illustrating how horrible the social situation has developed in Ireland. Similarly, Gulliver becomes quite upset with the social situations he sees in society, that, when he comes home from his long journey, he sleeps in the barn with the horses. He was so touched and influenced by the Houyhnhnms that he does not want any part of human society, realizing its great flaws and lack of concern for the better good. Overall, both Swift and Gulliver attempt to correct or point out the problems in their respective societies.
