Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), officially "Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World,
in Four Parts". By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships, is a novel by
Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the
'travellers' tales' literary sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of
English literature. ?
Part I: A Voyage to Lilliput
Part II: A Voyage to Brobdingnag
Part III: A Voyage to Laputa, Balnibarbi, Glubbdubdrib, Luggnagg, and Japan
Part IV: A Voyage to Houyhnhnms
"Gulliver's Travels" is an incisive satire that has never lost its sting - whether the work of an
embittered mind or a profound comment on the Age of Reason and Nature, there is all the fascination of
distorting mirrors in Swift's accounts of Lilliput and Brogdingnag, and far more than mere spleen in
the saeva indignatio with which he lashes human passions and institutions.
About the Author
Jonathan Swift was born in Dublin in 1667, after the death of his father. A cousin of Dryden, he was
educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and for much of his early life travelled frequently between
Ireland and England. Swift became increasingly occupied with Irish affairs, and wrote a great number of
works including celebrated satires like 'A Tale of a Tub' and A Modest Proposal', political pamphlets
and Gulliver's Travels -- all informed by his sense of the Whigs' unfair treatment of Ireland. Nearly
all of his works were published anonymously, and he only received payment for Gulliver's Travels. He
died, after a long illness in 1745.
