"Gulliver's Travels", first published in 1726, was read "from Cabinet-council to the Nursery". Written by Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) it was and still is one of the greatest satires written on human nature. Captain Lemuel Gulliver takes voyages that end up at four fantastic places. The Lilliputians are only six inches tall. The land of Brobdingnag is populated with beings over sixty feet tall. He also visits a series of lands peopled by the most impractical groups. Lastly he visits a land ruled by horses where men are the laboring brutes.
"Gulliver's Travels" was rated by George Orwell as one of the six most indispensable books in the world.

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.
