analytical thesis on Gullivers Travels

            In the book Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift the theme of power is present through-out the book. The theme of power can be broken into three sections: power in number, power of greater, and power of intelligence. This theme is believed to be one of the most frequently used themes of all books. You can see this theme is such books as 1984, Frankenstien, the Bazil Brokentail series, and Gulliver's Travels. The theme of power in such books is usually played upon the main character as if to intensify the idea of the theme.
             Within the first book of Gulliver's Travels we see the theme of power witnessed by the reader as power in numbers.
             In the beginning of the first book Gulliver is ship wrecked on an island. The island the reader will find out is inhabited by small people not but five inches tall. Gulliver wakes up tied down by hundreds or maybe thousands of little threads staked into the ground. He tries to get up but the force in which he puts into getting up is not spread through a couple of strings but through hundreds maybe thousands of strings. Which in physics one learns that a thousand strings would distribute the force exerted equally to all the strings which would lower the force put on each string until the force exerted would be less than the force need to pull the stakes out of the ground. This physic property is the definition of power in numbers. The power in numbers is also seen within my favorite book series Bazil Brokentail. Through-out the series of books the evil people of Pasmodeda live by this theme, power in number whenever they send a force which is suppose to overcome the good people of the Argonath they always send their army at about a hundred to one ratio to the force of good.
             Within the second book of Gulliver's Travels we see a different theme of power witnessed by the reader as power of greater. When I say greater I mean of greater size and/or strength or of greater sight.
