Summary
"Gulliver's Travels purports to be a travel book, and describes Gulliver's encounters with the inhabitants of four extraordinary places: Lilliput, Brobdingnag, Laputa, and the country of the Houyhnhnms. A blend of fantasy and realism make Gulliver's Travels by turns hilarious, frightening, and profound. Swift plays tricks on us, and delivers one of the world's most disturbing satires of the human condition." "This new edition includes the changing frontispiece portraits of Gulliver that appeared in successive early editions."--BOOK JACKET
