Description

Shipwrecked on an unknown island, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself surrounded by its six-inch natives, the Lilliputians. But this is only the first in a long line of wonderful lands Gulliver visits. His adventures take him to Brobdingnag, populated by a race of giants; Luggnagg, home to the eternally ageing Struldbrugs; and the country of the Houyhnhnms, inhabited by benevolent talking horses. Parodying the immensely popular travel novels of its time, "Gulliver's Travels" is not only a tour de force in imaginative and comical writing, but also a masterly, merciless satire on western society and human nature.
