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.

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.
