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—with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnm and the brutish Yahoos—give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behavior. Swift’s savage satire views mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified, and finally, bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves. It is widely considered Swift’s magnum opus and is his most celebrated work, as well as one of the indisputable classics of English literature
