The Chinese philosopher named Lien Chi Altangi writes a series of travel letters to his friend from London. Through these witty letters, Goldsmith exposes both England's most ridiculous customs and its defining characteristics. He uses a foreign traveller as the naive narrator of a contemporary social satire - quite a common device used by writers at the time to mask there own social criticisms. It is a highly entertaining and inspiring adventure in literature.

He is remembered as one of Ireland's great writers for his wit and sharp social commentary of the often harsh and unequal times he lived in.
