From Lilliput to Brobdingnag, from Laputa to Houyhnhnmland, you are invited to join ship’s surgeon Lemuel Gulliver on the adventure of a lifetime, as he encounters fantastical lands, the inhabitants of which – whether minute or giant, man or beast – turn a mirror on humankind and so-called ‘civilised society’.

A masterpiece of satire and imagination, this parody on the travel-memoir genre is a vivid, phantasmagorical romp with serious undertones, as Swift’s irreverent wit pokes fun at the establishment in a way that will both delight and resonate with modern readers.

Born in Dublin in 1667, Jonathan Swift was a writer and cleric of immediate and lasting influence. An activist and master of satire, he was a prolific writer, and in his later years he became Dean of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. A man of immense spirit and charity, Swift is remembered as a ferocious literary talent and a dedicated fighter for the integrity of the individual. 

ABOUT THE COVER The four parts of Gulliver’s Travels are illustrated using the objects and symbols the protagonist encounters on his travels, the four anchors representing each of his journeys. The overall visual is based on a compass, representing Gulliver’s navigation, both physically and morally, through the lands and customs he explores.
