Description


Although Gulliver’s Travels is a political satire, it is also an adventure tale full of twists and turns and fantastical places and beings. Lemuel Gulliver is a surgeon who aspires to travel the world in order to discover new places. The book is narrated by Gulliver. He gives a detailed account of four different voyages from England to undiscovered parts of the earth where he encounters strange inhabitants and foreign customs. First, he comes upon a land of miniature peoples, who befriend him despite the large amount of food he consumes in comparison to them. Next, he visits a land of giants, who are friendly toward him although he is repulsed by their gigantic imperfections. He journeys to a land of theoreticians and academics whose minds are completely out of touch with real life problems, and takes a side trip to a land where historical figures have been re-created in the flesh, although they are much less impressive than Gulliver imagined they would be. His final journey takes him to a land of intelligent horse-like creatures, ruled by oppressive human-like creatures. Lemuel feels the most at home with the horse-like creatures, but they have a difficult time accepting his resemblance to the human-like creatures who rule over them. Gulliver’s Travels was initially received as highly controversial and though full of fantastical creatures, Gulliver’s Travels was not intended to be a children’s book. The novel is instead a biting criticism of the nature of mankind. It is also a humorous, highly entertaining book, and it occasionally offers beams of hope amidst Swift’s trenchant depictions of insufferable beings.
