about

One of the true classics, Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift (first published in 1726) is another for the bucket list of any fans of fictional writing.

Written in four divisions, Swift portrays the novel as the memoirs of the titled character, Lemuel Gulliver. Gulliver describes his decidedly odd encounters with the even more peculiar denizens of lands foreign and as yet undiscovered, including the 6 inch high Lilliputians, the giant... Well, Giants and the super intelligent horse-race.

In much of Swifts work (this being no exception) can be found satirical references of varying form and on any number of subjects; politics, of course, along with family, science and even (more unusually for the time) religion. Many of the subjects satirically covered by Dean Jonathan Swift in Gulliver's Travels concern the happenings specifically of his lifetime but many still, perhaps even more than the former, are of direct concern to societies of the modern world - subjects such as the issues of power both separately and including that pertaining to mankind's on-going technological advancement.

Without a doubt one of our favourite novels of all time Gulliver's Travels should be enjoyed by both the young and old and will undoubtedly be, for us at least, a book to pick up over and over.
