know for sure, right!!!!)

Ron -- I would say definitely not History, unless Swift was recording
something that really happened.  (possible, but i doubt it.)  The work
itself is an historic event because it is one of the earliest examples, if
not the earliest, of a fantasy-cum-political statire 'novel'.
