Description

Lemuel Gulliver, a surgeon and sea captain, journeys to different islands, where he meets some of the strangest creatures ever to appear in literature. His most famous visits are to Lilliput, where he towers over the 6-inch, warlike people, and Brobdingnag, where the natives are gigantic, yet cannot understand abstract concepts. Gulliver also travels to the flying island of Laputa, Lagadu, a land of impractical philosophers, and Glubdubdrib, where sorcerers allow him to speak to great historical figures. He meets the Struldbrugs, who are miserable immortals, and visits Houyhnhnmland, where a race of highly intelligent horses are served by filthy creatures called Yahoos. Filled with brilliant satire and wild encounters, Jonathan Swift's masterpiece is one of the most creative, significant novels of all time.
