Description

Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), 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. The book became popular as soon as it was published. John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery." [1] Since then, it has never been out of print. Cavehill in Belfast is thought to be the inspiration for the novel. Swift imagined that the mountain resembled the shape of a sleeping giant safeguarding the city. [2]

Customer Reviews

An Incomplete Classic for Kids

As the preface states, "The punctuation and capitalization have been modernized, some archaisms changed, and the paragraphs have been made more frequent. A few passages have been omitted which would offend modern ears and are unsuitable for children's reading, and some foot-notes have been added explaining obsolete words and obscure expressions." Additionally, it should be noted that the original Gulliver's Travels had four voyages, while this has only the first two. Admittedly the treatment herein makes an easier read, but those wanting the complete original version should hit Project Gutenberg instead.

Avoid this edited and incomplete version

Warning, this is the "children's version", which is missing several passages deemed unsuitable for minors. And it is only the first two of the four voyages in the complete text. Lots of typos, too.
