Through a series of shipwrecks and misguided voyages, Gulliver is captured by miniature people who wage war because of a religious disagreement over how to crack eggs; is sexually assaulted by giants; visits a floating island; and decides that the society of horses is better than that of his fellow man. Tough, filthy, and incisive, this playful satire addresses among other topics politics, religion, and society is presented here in its unexpurgated entirety. Also included is Alexander Pope’s Verses on Gulliver’s Travels, which he wrote for his friend Swift and which were included in very early editions of the book.

From the Inside Flap:

Considered one of English literature's first and greatest satirists, Jonathan Swift possessed a timeless genius for pointing out the foibles of human nature that still has the power to provoke, amuse, and, at times, even outrage
our modern sensibilities. This representative collection of Swift's major writings includes the complete "Gulliver's Travels as well as "A Tale of a Tub, "The Battle of the Books," "A Modest Proposal," "An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity," "The Bickerstaff Papers," and many more of his brilliantly satirical works. Here too are selections from Swift's poetry and portions of his Journal to Stella. Swift's savage ridicule, corrosive wit, and sparkling humor are fully displayed in this comprehensive collection.
