Vintage Satire: Gulliver`s Travels&Atomised

Производитель: "Random House, Inc."

`Vintage Satire`is a limited edition gift pack which consists of beautifully designed separate volumes of`Gulliver`s Travels`by Jonathan Swift and Michel Houellebecq`s controversial bestseller`Atomised.``Vintage Satire`is just one of ten`Vintage Classic Twins`to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination. In the course of his famous travels,`Gulliver`s Travels`: In the course of his famous travels, Gulliver is captured by miniature people who wage war on each other because of religious disagreement over how to crack eggs, is sexually assaulted by giants, visits a floating island, and decides that the society of horses is better than that of his fellow man. Swift`s tough, filthy and incisive satire has much to say about the state of the world today and is presented here in its unexpurgated entirety.`Atomised`: Half-brothers Michel and Bruno have a mother in common but little else. Michel is a molecular biologist, a thinker and idealist, a man with no erotic life to speak of and little in the way of human society. Bruno, by contrast, is a libertine, though more in theory than in practice, his endless lust is all too rarely reciprocated. Both are symptomatic members of our atomised society, where religion has given way to shallow`new age`philosophies and love to meaningless sexual connections. A dissection of modern lives and loves, it is by turns funny, acid, infuriating, didactic, touching and visceral.

Jonathan Swift

Los ratos de ocio son el tiempo apto para hacer algo provechoso.
Un hombre no debe nunca avergonzarse por reconocer que se equivocó, lo cual es como decir que hoy es más sabio que lo que fue ayer.
La felicidad es el privilegio de ser bien engañado.
Muchos hay que no conocen su debilidad, pero otros tantos hay que no conocen su fuerza.
Un pueblo habituado durante largo tiempo a un régimen duro pierde gradualmente la noción misma de libertad.
El que quiere adoptar el continente de un hombre orgulloso debe ocultar su vanidad.
Tenemos el mínimo de religión suficiente para odiarnos unos a otros, pero no para amarnos.
Los mejores médicos del mundo son: el doctor dieta, el doctor reposo y el doctor alegría.
Los naturalistas han observado que una pulga lleva sobre su cuerpo otras pulgas más pequeñas, que a su vez alimentan a otras más diminutas pulgas. Y así, hasta el infinito.
Es un axioma que aquel a quien todos conceden el segundo lugar, tiene méritos indudables para ocupar el primero.
Todo el mundo quisiera vivir largo tiempo, pero nadie querría ser viejo.
Cuando los hombres se tornan virtuosos en la vejez, no hacen sino sacrificar a Dios las sombras de lo sacrificado al diablo.
