Editorial Reviews

Irish writer Jonathan Swift’s classic tale Gulliver's Travels, which has spawned countless adaptations, can be seen as both a kid-friendly yarn and a satirical indictment of human nature and European government.
First published in 1726, this novel follows the travels of Lemuel Gulliver. Gulliver visits the six-inch tall Lilliputians and then moves on to Brobdingnag, a land of giants. Later voyages see him visiting fantastic places with names like Laputa and Glubbdubdrib - and also Japan.
Using a mid-Atlantic accent, Norman Dietz adopts a wide-eyed, incredulous tone as he assumes the persona of the title character.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Gulliver's Travels

The epitome of political satire. Swift's indictment of politicians, lawyers and the clergy are as relevant today as when he wrote them 600 years ago. This book is much to good to be relegated to a childs book.
