    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 Brobdingnag, 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.

    A savage and hilarious satire, Gulliver's Travels sees Lemuel Gulliver shipwrecked and adrift, subject to bizarre and unnerving encounters with - among others - quarrelling Lilliputians, philosophising horses, and the brutish Yahoo tribe that change his view of humanity - and himself - forever. Swift's classic of 1726 portrays mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified, and finally, bestial species, presenting us with a comical yet uncompromising reflection of ourselves.

Island by island, he meets the savage but tiny Lilliputians, the hideous Yahoos, a stable of talking horses, a race of decrepit immortals, and the ghosts of Julius Caesar and Homer.

    Wickedly narrated by David Stifel, and written in 1729, this satiric essay on how to solve Ireland's chronic poverty is perhaps more shocking today than when it was written. In the 1960s, when Peter O'Toole did a public reading of this piece in Dublin, he very nearly started a riot. Newspapers the following day lambasted O'Toole's "shocking bad taste." Whether shocking satire, or Monty-Pythonesque surrealism, this essay has continually managed to offend people for well over 3 centuries. Enjoy! (and Thank You!)

    Gulliver enjoys traveling, although it is this love of travel that is his downfall. His adventure sets off in Lilliput, when after a shipwreck, he wakes up, finding himself a prisoner of a race of people one twelfth the size of normal human beings. However, his adventure among the small people does not last long, when he has to escape the city as he is charged with treason.

    Shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms, and the brutish Yahoos give him further insight into human behavior. Presented through Swift's satiric hall of distorting mirrors, mankind is cast as diminished, magnified, and bestial - the composite of which is an uncompromising reflection of human nature.

    Irlantilaiskirjailija Jonathan Swiftin fantasiaromaani lääkäri ja merikapteeni Lemuel Gulliverin seikkailullisista matkoista maapallon tutkimattomiin osiin on ollut tunnettu klassikkona ja englanninkielisen kirjallisuuden mestariteoksena jo 300 vuoden ajan. Aluksi Gulliverin alus haaksirikkoutuu lilliputtien saarelle, jonka asukkaat ovat vain 15 senttimetriä pitkiä. Tuo korkeus kuvaa myös muun muassa asukkaiden poliittisten keskusteluiden tasoa. Tätä seuraavat matkat johdattavat Gulliverin muun muassa jättiläisten asuttamaan Brobdingnagiin sekä lentävälle saarelle.

    In vier Büchern liefert Jonathan Swift vier fiktive Reiseberichte des englischen Schiffsarztes Lemuel Gulliver. Seine abenteuerlichen Reisen führen ihn auf die Insel Liliput, wo er im Vergleich zu den Einwohnern ein Riese ist und zum Helden wird. Die zweite Reise führt ihn auf die Insel Brobdingnag, und dort ist Gulliver nun der Zwerg zwischen riesenhaften Ureinwohnern, die den Winzling Gulliver als Attraktion bestaunen. Obwohl er viele Gefahren nur knapp überlebt, geht Gulliver erneut auf Reisen und gelangt auf die fliegende Insel Laputa.

    Lemuel Gulliver, Schiffsarzt und später Kapitän, schildert die Erlebnisse seiner vier Reisen. Auf der Insel Liliput lernt er winzige Einwohner kennen. Auf der Insel Brobdingnag ist Gulliver Zwerg unter Riesen. Die Bewohner der schwebenden Insel Laputa terrorisieren die darunterliegende Insel Balnibarbi und widmen ihr Leben einer überflüssigen Bildung. Schließlich begegnet er den Hauyhnhnms, vernünftigen Pferden. In ihrem Land leben auch wilde Humanoide, die Yähu (die von den Pferden als Haus- und Lasttiere gehalten werden).

At Glubdubdrib, the Island of Sorcerers, he speaks with great men of the past and learns from them the lies of history.
