Lemuel Gulliver sets out on a series of travels, but each time he finds himself shipwrecked in new and unfamiliar lands. And how unfamiliar … In Lilliput, everyone is tiny, and it takes thousands of them to capture him; in Brodingnag, they’re huge and treat him as a sort of living toy; in Laputa, they live on a floating island inventing impossibly mad projects; and the Houyhnhnms are horses!
But through all his adventures, Gulliver learns to see humans in a different way, too. One of the world’s great works of fiction, Gulliver’s Travels keeps all its humour and satire in this new retelling.
