Had Swift known about the Nazis, the example of his treatment of lesser tyrannies and oppressions makes it clear that he would have instanced them as a culminating example of Yahoo depravity. Gulliver and the Gentle Reader A difficulty for the reader is that all this material is mediated through a narrator who is variously unreliable, and who in the later parts of the story, prefigured in the 1735 edition by the Letter to Sympson, seems actually deranged. The suggestion, as the story unfolds, is that he has been shattered into total misanthropy by his experience of human doings and the revelation of the Houyhnhnm Utopia.

But the women in this brief incidental comment are merely an extreme example of what is said about all humans, and the strongest charge of feeling in the entire chapter has to do not with any particular sex or category, but with the merciless effect of age on the body, mind, and morals. The depravity of the Struldbruggs is general, not specific; instinctive, not willed; a natural consequence of age and illness, not something they or anyone else can ever have prevented. We are now entering satirical territory of a new kind, in which depravity is not the mark of what people do, but of who they are.
