SynopsisGulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
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 give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behaviour.
'A masterwork of irony... that contains both a dark and bitter meaning and a joyous, extraordinary creativity of imagination. That is why it has lived for so long.' Malcolm Bradbury
