By Jonathan Swift, Scott McKowen
Shipwrecked and solid adrift, English physician Lemuel Gulliver wakes to discover himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited through little humans, whose top makes their quarrels over type and popularity appear ridiculous. His next encounters—with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms, and the brutish Yahoos—give him new, sour insights into human behavior.
Jonathan Swift's satire perspectives mankind in a distorted corridor of mirrors as a reduced, magnified, and at last bestial species, proposing us with an uncompromising mirrored image of ourselves. Gulliver's Travels is an interesting mixture of travelogue, realizm, symbolism, and exceptional voyage—all with a significant philosophical cause.
