Summary of Gulliver's Travels Summary of Gulliver's Travels Reviews for Gulliver's Travels An Excerpt from Gulliver's Travels

An authoritative edition of literature's most brilliant satire

Shipwrecked castaway Lemuel Gulliver's encounters with the petty, diminutive Lilliputians, the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the abstracted scientists of Laputa, the philosophical Houyhnhnms, and the brutish Yahoos give him new, bitter insights into human behavior. Swift's fantastic and subversive book remains supremely relevant in our own age of distortion, hypocrisy, and irony.

Edited with an Introduction by Robert DeMaria, Jr.

‘A masterwork of irony … that contains both a dark and bitter meaning and a joyous, extraordinary creativity of imagination. That is why it has lived for so long’ 
Malcolm Bradbury
