Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift

6.35

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 discoveries, as his adventures take him to other far-off lands such as 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, which has thrilled readers of all ages for almost three centuries, but also a masterly, merciless satire on western society and human nature.
