Yeah, I know what you mean. I feel a lot the same way about Gulliver's Travels. I really like a lot of his argument, but there are times that I just don't enjoy myself as much as I think I do, if that makes any sense.

If you read some of his poems (The Lady's Dressing Room and Description of a City Shower, for example), it's clear he has a bit of a fixation on excrement and the ugliness of women, as you can also see in Gulliver.
