After the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput become suspicious of Gulliver, they plan to kill their huge visitor. What deadly scheme do they come up with? Gulliver makes a friend in the land of the giants -Glumdalclitch, a nine year old girl. Can she protect him from the frightening creatures in Brobdingnag?

Los viajes de Gulliver

Author: Jonathan Swift Format: eBook Release Date: 27/11/2013

Este ebook presenta "e;Los viajes de Gulliver"e;, con un sumario dinamico y detallado. Los viajes de Gulliver es una novela de Jonathan Swift, publicada en 1726. Aunque se la ha considerado con frecuencia una obra infantil, en realidad es una satira feroz de la sociedad y la condicion humana, camuflada como un libro de viajes por paises pintorescos. La novela cuenta los fantasticos viajes del cirujano y capitan de barco Lemuel Gulliver tras su naufragio en una isla perdida. Pronto Gulliver descubrira que la isla esta habitada por una increible sociedad de seres humanos de tan solo seis pulgadas de estatura, los liliputienses, engreidos y vanidosos ciudadanos de Liliput. En un segundo viaje Gulliver descubre Brodbingnag, una tierra poblada por hombres gigantes, de gran capacidad practica, pero incapaces de pensamientos abstractos. En su tercer viaje va a parar a la isla volante de Laputa, cuyos habitantes son cientificos e intelectuales, ciertamente pedantes, obsesionados con su particular campo de investigacion pero totalmente ignorantes del resto de la realidad. Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745) fue un escritor satirico irlandes. Su obra principal es Los viajes de Gulliver, que constituye una de las criticas mas amargas que se han escrito contra la sociedad y la condicion humana. Su novela Los viajes de Gulliver tuvo una influencia determinante en autores radicales ingleses como William Godwin y Thomas Paine.
