the could see tiny things better than gulliver
Gulliver starts to dislike his own people because he sees their problems more clearly when he is travelling among other people. It is a frequent device used in fiction to take small truths and blow them up bigger than life-size to help them be examined more clearly. Gulliver's story thus illustrates real human problems and shows us why we should change.
Charles Dickens's last published novel was Our Mutual Friend. He was working on a murder mystery, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, when he died in 1870. It was intended to be published in 12 monthly installments and the first six were published between April and September 1870. Like many of his other books, Dickens had not yet decided how Edwin Drood would end when he died. Dickens often gave staged dramatic readings of selected scenes from his books, to huge public acclaim. His last reading was in 1870, three months before his death. Friends and family of Dickens--including his doctor--discouraged these readings and believed they contributed to his relatively early death at 58. Charles Dickens started on his last book The Mystery of Edwin Drood in 1869, just before his death in 1870. The book was unfinished and Dickens himself had not decided who the murderer was.
