A revised edition of Swift's classic, designed for younger readers. From the introduction: 'In this volume many long words have been shortened and some parts of the book that only grown folks could understand and like have been omitted.' "Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), officially Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, in Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships, 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 tremendously popular as soon as it was published (John Gay said in a 1726 letter to Swift that "it is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery"); since then, it has never been out of print."Keywords: WORLD LITERATURE CLASSICS SATIRE FICTION NOVEL.
