Written in 1726, the celebrated and highly ironic Gulliver's Travels is a timeless masterpiece that takes us into strange lands of little people, giants, and preoccupied mathematicians who live on a flying island. From the creative imagination and satiric mind of its writer, Jonathan Swift, the adventures and misadventure of the story's hero, Quinbus Fiestrin, entertain and amuse with cheerful wit. Shipwrecked and cast upon an unknown land, an exhausted Quinbus Fiestrin lays down to rest, falls asleep, and awakens to discover that he is tied to the ground from head to foot by the native of Lilliput people who are small enough to fit in his pockets and to play hide and seek in his hair. Where Quinbus is clearly a lumbering giant, the returns to his home in England, only to set sail upon the sea once more where numerous misfortunes and adventures await him.
