Gulliver's Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World (with the original color illustrations by Arthur Rackham). In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, commonly known as GULLIVER'S TRAVELS (1726, amended 1735), is a prose satire by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary subgenre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. The book became popular as soon as it was published. John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery." Since then, it has never been out of print. (more on www.wisehouse-classics.com)

WOW

Though we all think we know Gullivers travels, mainly from the Lilliput highlight, the remainder of Defoe’s (imaginary?) travels are absolutely fascinating. Social commentary at it’s best, irrespective of the age of the viewpoint. There are so many parallels with our world now, we should be ashamed of ourselves for our pomposity. This should be required reading for all children, teenagers & (especially) the movers & shakers in the political world.

Four ways to look at humans

A masterpiece examining humans from every perspective. Swift writing so far back had a great handle on the customs and ways of human kind. his different worlds allow him to explore customs and writes and how we often see the world only from our own perspective and imagine all other views to be wrong. his next travels allow Swift to look at the failings of human kind. how we can debase ourselves without knowing what ‘humanity’ means.
