Description
First published in 1726, Gulliver's Travels is one of the first truly great novels - a brilliant combination of fantasy, adventure, and satire. The centuries have done nothing to dispel the wonder and excitement of Gulliver's voyages to Lilliput, land of midgets, and Brobdingnag, land of giants, while the unflinching insights into the human condition of Gulliver's later voyages are as relevant today as ever. Gulliver's Travels is often presented to children with the more serious, ironical parts omitted. However this accessible abridgment by James Dunbar includes all the book's major incidents. This allows younger readers to experience for themselves the full flavor of the original. Fact-filled columns and pages explore the themes of the book and its historical background, including the life and times of Jonathan Swift, the layers of meaning behind the story, and its lasting impact on world culture.
