about

Set sail on an incredible journey with Jonathan Swift''s satiric masterpiece.

A fantastical tale, Gulliver''s Travels tells the story of the four voyages of Lemuel Gulliver, an English ship''s surgeon. First, he is shipwrecked in the land of Lilliput, where the alarmed residents are only six inches tall. His second voyage takes him to the land of Brobdingnag, where the people are sixty feet tall.

Read by children as an adventure story and by adults as a devastating satire of society, Gulliver''s Travels remains a fascinating blend of travelogue, realism, symbolism, and fantastic voyage—all with a serious philosophical intent.
